Based on the current set of players, assuming they’re all fit, Who would be your best starting XI and why? What formation and, assuming they all stay fit, where would that starting XI finish in the Premier League?
I’d go for, in a 4-3-3 when attacking but transitioning into a 4-4-2 when defending...
Coleman, Godfrey, Holgate, Digne.
Davies - in the holding midfield role
James, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.
Godfrey and Holgate together would mean we don’t have to defend deep, Allan and Doucouré would hunt for the ball and look to turn over possession in the opposition half.
Richarlison would fall back to left midfield when we are defending to make 4 midfielders. James would do whatever James wants to do!!!!
I reckon this starting XI, if they all stayed fit, would be on par with Man Utd and Chelsea, battling it out for 3rd. Not good enough for Man City's or Liverpool’s first XI, but better than Leicester, Spurs and Arsenal.
Over to you...

I know its only one game, (they look like beating city today) but Chelsea are looking like an excellent team, and I think they might be title contenders next season, alongside both Manchester teams.

I expect Colin G will be trying to shoehorn Ballon D'Iwobi into his starting line up somewhere.
