I've seen people talk of starting Kone , and I feel he has had some quite harsh criticism since joining us. But we must be starting with our best team EVERY game , if we want a good season. Points in the bag before we bring him on etc. especially as we know Lukaku can't last more than 65 mins. That being said I would like to see him get more game time , just not right now. Even though we're playing hull , it's no reason to see it as an easy 3 points.
Stones - Jags - Distin
Coleman - Barry - McCarthy - Baines
Mirallas - Lukaku.
Go a 3-4-1-2 and dominate the game. In the past few weeks when Mirallas was moved up front, he's been more effective than being on the wing and that might just stop Lukaku from going stale after 65 mins like he has done. Barkley given a free role to do the leg work behind the 2 with support from Coleman and Baines could work nicely. Whilst also we're aware of any counter attack Hull might want to pull off with Barry and McCarthy sitting deep covering the back 3.
