Lovely stuff. Should do these with that lineup.

 

Keep it away from Wilson at feet and we can deal with them with that backline. No Shelvey in the starting lineup a bonus - even if he's not the player he was, his searching balls always worry me when we play these 

 

inb4 Joelinton decides to have his one good game in 20 now i've said that

I wish I had searching balls. They sound pretty cool.

Can't see the point in playing Albrighton in these sorts of games.

So that we can still muck about with 3-4-2-1 or 4-1-4-1 in games, not sure its needed but Albrighton has been decent of late so willing to tolerate it. Ünder has to take whatever chances that come his way in the coming weeks and that will force Rodgers to start him, its the only way I'm afraid.

Albrighton is currently playing because he gives Brendan tactical flexibility within the game. When Pereira is fit no doubt he will replace Albrighton in that role. 
 

We can switch between a 4-1-4-1 and the 3-4-2-1 with Albrighton playing and that’s not possible with Under/Perez. 

For now, but I still think we will go back to 4-1-4-1 with 2 proper wingers like Barnes and Ünder and subject to us not being the pits like we were vs Everton that it will stay vs the majority of teams.

Marc Albrighton and Danny Simpson?

It’s funny I could probably name about 10 players who have done this, but I think you have the answers the original question was looking for.
