The central defenders have done so well that they've convinced me, in spite of my previous support for four at the back. We don't need to have two centre halves after all, we can get away with one.

Would go with a 1-3-3-3 formation.

Martinez (rush goalie)

Mings

McGinn
Luiz
J Ramsey

Bailey
Buendia
Traore

Ings
Archer
Watkins

That made me laugh

Id be 433 for me all day long.
I am starting to think that watkins and Ings can work in that system where Ings becomes (a bit of a) false 9, so Bailey and Watkins can tuck in (like Firmino used to do for Salah and Mane).

This is exactly how I'd like us to play against the more defensive teams, players between the lines.

What's great is that we had such a good transfer window, and our Academy have done so well that we now have so many options open to us.

Oh and just to finally comment on the 3-5-2 v 5-3-2.... When Cash crossed for Targett to put it over the bar, they were further forward than any other player. That doesn't happen with the latter formation.

True. They were both over the halfway line more often than they were in our half I reckon.

I'd like us to go to move on from 3 at the back against Arsenal but I suspect Smith may change personnel and not system

Or he might play exactly the same formation and personnel, and throw the game away completely.

Harsh. The Arsenal players loved our formation.

If you were looking for one Villa player that had done well, best I could come up would be Hause. The one that he's decided to drop, so we can help Man U out.

Well the formation is set by Steven Me unless maybe Villa are moving to wing backs?
However it's the players that in front position especially front 3 be interesting to see as preferred and deemed first choices
I'm all for strong squad and rotating however Gerrard needs to know his best 11 when all available

For me it's this with Nakamba/Luiz to be replaced

           Martinez
Cash Konsa Mings Digne
         Nakamba/Luiz
  Ramsey McGinn Coutinho
    Bailey Ings Watkins
