Alvarez

Blues have taken quickly to the young Argentine and adore his hefty work rate. Bringing more than an excellent press to his game, he was involved in two goals on Saturday.

Will we finally get to see him start?

Foden

The link up between Alvarez, Foden and Haaland looked a lively and exciting one in the second half against Palace.

With Alvarez involved in Haalands first goal, and the assist coming with a perfect cross from Foden. Foden’s creative ability could be important in facing the hard to play Forest.

Haaland

Some believe that Haaland won’t start every game. My question would be, did we get the best young striker in the world to sit on the bench?

Perhaps he will miss some Carabao or FA cup games, but newly promoted or not, Wednesday’s opponents will not be an easy game and we will need our strongest warriors.

What do you reckon blues? Am I close? Comment your predicted line-up.
