Problem with Studge, as well he has been playing, if you put him in you fundamentally lose the ability to press. Our wins against City have been built on forcing mistakes when they are in possession in their final third and then taking advantage. If Studge would genuinely press the ball he'd be in the side no brainier for me but I don't think he'll ever play that way because he's lost trust in his body. Bobby is the trigger for our entire pressing game so he has to play.
Agree that without the ball we're better with Bob up front than Studge, no doubt.
Problem is 'with' the ball, the three lads up front having been making good use of it recently. And we need to make good use of our chances against City. And although Studge also wastes possession, he's in scoring form.
Tough one, I 'trust' Bob more than Studge, but Studge has done well when given his chance, he really put a marker down in the game vs PSG.
In the middle, I thought Keita was injured - if he's not, I'd play him an leave out Shaq. But on form, think Shaq has done enough to challenge Mo for a start, though not sure Jürgen would leave out Mo.
If neither Studge or Shaq start, can see us putting in huge effort, but maybe not making best use of our chances. Again, just going on form - but hope I'm wrong and Mo and Bob do great
