pleased with the lineup considering who is available. If Giroud is playing, Barkley and Mount can come more central while James and Alonso push forward. Willian usually occupies the same space that one of the wingbacks play. Honestly, he's got the skill set of a wingback, I'd love to see Willian channel his inner Marcelo, but too late for that.
