Mohamed Elneny (RCM) – The perfect player for these sorts of games. Elneny isn’t the sort of player who is going to run the show but his ability to break up play and keep things ticking over is always helpful.
Dani Ceballos (LCM) – If Dani Ceballos does start against Southampton, it’ll be interesting to see what sort of performance he delivers. Thomas Partey has reclaimed his starting spot which leaves Ceballos with something of a battle on his hands. Can the Spaniard deliver a display which would lead to him displacing either of Partey or Xhaka? Let’s wait and see.
Willian (CAM) – It feels like tomorrow represents a final opportunity for Willian to prove himself as an attacking midfielder. With Emile Smith Rowe in strong form and Ødegaard’s expected arrival, it’s likely that pair will be competing over the No. 10 spot for the remainder of the season. If Willian fails there again tomorrow, it’s hard to see where any more opportunities for him in that role would come from.
