Predicted Line-ups – Gameweek 26


Sam Allardyce would seem unlikely he’ll make many changes from the side that beat Leicester City 2-1, though he could possibly consider a change in formation to deploy a three-man backline, mimicking the recent success of Swansea City against Arsenal. Oumar Niasse was a surprise inclusion as the lone striker on Wednesday night, with Gylfi Sigurdsson, Wayne Rooney and Theo Walcott forming the attacking midfield trio in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Rooney would seem the most likely to drop out should Allardyce change formation. Tom Davies played alongside Idrissa Gueye in central midfield in midweek, but Morgan Schneiderlin is a viable starter either in place or alongside Davies in a more defensive three-man midfield. At the back, Ashley Williams, Mason Holgate and new arrival Eliaquim Mangala offer fresh options in central defence, while Allardyce revealed he will check on Seamus Coleman after the defender returned from a long injury lay-off against Leicester. Jonjoe Kenny is the alternative option at right-back. Leighton Baines is out with his injury still.


Keane – Holgate – Mangala

Coleman – Gueye – Schneiderlin – Martina

Walcott – Sigurdsson
