Aah, the international break… not the most exciting of times is it?
However, the good news is that we’re almost at the half-way stage, and the break does at least allow us to take stock of what is happening and where.
With that in mind, today we’re looking at Brighton and Hove Albion, what Newcastle’s defensive issues mean for Spurs assets as well as the best options at Arsenal and Chelsea.
Brighton rolled over Newcastle United in Gameweek 29, with a clever set-up that saw them completely dominate their opponents.
Though their formation was listed as a 3-4-1-2, it involved centre-forwards Neal Maupay (£6.2m) and Danny Welbeck (£5.5m) moving into wide areas in possession. That in turn created space centrally, which wing-backs Pascal Groß (£5.8m) and Jakub Moder (£5.0m), plus Leandro Trossard (£5.8m), were able to exploit.
That’s all for today people, let’s catch up again soon!
