If, as you quoted Eze, won't be available, who could we put there without unbalancing the 'shape', Ayew with Edouard left? To me, the obvious answer would've been Wharton, but we all know Roy doesn't do 'obvious'.


Well, I do wonder whether Ahamada could do a job there. He's more of an offensive than defensive player and he has a good turn of foot.

Wharton has spent more than 80% of his playing time as a DM.

Like this team, but would play Richards for Hughes who seems slower than ever.

Personally I don't think Edouard works hard enough to paly wide. He's not going to be getting back and helping TM out.

If it was me I'd want to play as close as a like for like as we have, which I think is Ahamada.

(but I'd also start Wharton and Munoz)

Too true, a perfect example of that was in 1990.

Liverpool 9 C Palace 0.
C. Palace 1 Liverpool 5

Above games in the league. Who bet against Liverpool in our next game in the FA Cup, after all given those two games who would?

Liverpool 3 C Palace 4

The home game was Palace 0-2 Liverpool.

The 5-1 home defeat was a few seasons later if memory serves me right.

Brighton will be without wingers March and Mitoma, but still threaten out wide through clever use of full backs and rotation of players meaning the likes of Gross can also occupy wide positions.
They like to dominate possession and play out from the back.
If Eze isn't fit I'd be tempted to start Wharton.
He may well be a different sort of player than Eze, but we will need energy and legs in midfield to compete with Brighton's relentless approach.
He could hopefully occasionally make a foray into the opposition box.
The more mobile we are in midfield the better.
No doubt Hodgson would go with Richards or Schlupp, but Richards is out of position and I fear Brighton would play around him and Schlupp is woefully ahort of form and fitness

I think you can expect a team to be able to defend set pieces and score some goals. The two are not mutually exclusive. I would suggest they are amongst the basic fundamentals of football.

I have lots of expectations but Palace continually thwart them......that's life.

And JRS is not only not fit but not ready to start.

Talks of him spending the second half of the season at Southampton are more where he should head.

Roy's said he's firmly in his plans

My attitude now too. Why bother exhausting any hope that's left? It will be a Roy hopeless sh1t line-up and Brighton will win and their supporters rejoice.
