Didn't want to start a new thread just for that but I have a question that I would be curious to know what is the forum's answer to it:
If everybody is healthy, what is your ''go to'' CB pairing?
I personally feel a bit more confident and relaxed when its VVD + Matip. I just feel like Matip is, overall, more commanding in the air, his first couple of strides when out of position and wanting to catch up are superior to Gomez's (which is important because both like to carry the ball and naturally sometime get caught in an advanced position). The understanding between big Joel and VVD also seem a notch superior (to me) than the one between Joe and VVD.
I still love Joe obviously but healthy Matip is my choice over him. I might be right or wrong, just curious to read the opinion of others on that matter.
