I think we looked a lot better at the beginning of the season with a back 4. Penney is better at left back. I’d go with
Palmer/Baker Lees Thornley Penney
Reach Hector Bannan
I think Hector would be way better than Pelupessy. He’s better on the ball and is only outlet wouldn’t be Bannan. He could also drop back too.
Right back is a problem area don’t know who’s best. I’ve found Palmer better when not having to try and provide crosses. Baker has gotten into great spaces the last couple of games, but I don’t think he’s strong enough (suspended anyway for Blackburn)
Matias has provided cover when they shave gone forward. He has worked hard, but no end product or support.
