Pretty self explanatory.

Zaha suspended and the two of them are clearly incapable of playing up front and meaningfully contributing on their own for a sustained spell of 90 minutes.

Play 4-3-1-2 with Townsend behind the pair of them and Milo, MAC and Kouyate in their preferred central positions (as opposed to playing J Mac and Meyer on the wings).

Meyer can then come on behind the strikers if needed and, if all else fails, Townsend can move up top to replace one of Sorltoh or Ayew.

I donít believe the two of them have played together yet and Townsend is our only fit winger so canít play with any width anyhow.
The West Ham game underlined that we struggle with eye of the needle passes in and around the box, so potentially a more direct approach with runners coming from midfield may provide some surprising results ....

Problem is without any width, Sorloth and Ayew will be even more ineffectual (if that's possible).

It might be an idea to play 3 centre backs with AWB and PVA/Schlupp as wing backs to provide width and crosses.

Anything is worth a go that at the moment.

I'm surprised you haven't already been torn to shreds for even suggesting Ayew might be a solution! Or Sorloth come to that.

Personally I'm not so sure thay Ayew is as bad as some make out. And, I am still not going to dismiss Sorloth quite yet , at least until I have seen him start a game.

Anyway, whether it's Ayew, Sorloth or someone else who comes in, a change will have to be made, and perhaps that's no bad thing.

Ayew will probably play up top on his own. With schlupp coming in on the left.

Yes agreed. And Kelly in for Tomkins.

We're in the desperate situation of needing to start Sorloth, Ayew, or Schlupp...

My guess is that it will be 4-4-2 with Ayew and Townsend up front, midfield unchanged.

4-3-3 with McArthur, Luka, Kouyate central, Townsend and Meyer wide, and Sorloth or Ayew (both s***, take your pick) up top could be an alternative.

They started together against Middlesbrough and they were awful. Why not start Schlupp up with Townsend? I know he's not been great, but he's better in the air and seems to pose more of a threat than Ayew or Sorloth. At least he's actually scored in the PL this season.

Start Wickham. Even not 100% he'll be better than Sorloth and Ayew.

I am amazed Wickham hasnt been on the bench again since his latest setback as he looks fine in training videos that they post.

Maybe he will get on the bench at least.

Ayew has one benefit over Sorloth which is he can carry the ball a bit and has ok close control and can pick a pass. He is not a striker though.

I would be happy to see James Daly be given the start ahead of Sorloth, but if we must, then Sorloth up top flanked by Ayew and Townsend and at least do something different.

Drop McArthur out, and if Meyer is not performing bring Jimmy Mac on at half time.

At the back its obviously Kelly in for hot head Tomkins.

Doesn't mean he will definitely be banned at senior level.
