2. Gabriel Jesus must start
This is not a knock on Eddie Nketiah, who has deputised for Jesus up front rather well. He has done so well that he got a call-up to the English National Team. He has accounted himself well and should continue to be the number two option leading the line moving forward. But Gabriel Jesus is such a dynamic player simply has to start every meaningful game he’s available for.
He certainly looked fit on Wednesday night.
Jesus was everywhere on the pitch being chaotic and giving the Dutch side more than they could handle. The Brazilian was rewarded for his hard work by finding the back of the net. Jesus scored in last year’s NLD at the Emirates and I get the sense that he’s itching to notch another one.
