Goalkeeper and defence

Jordan Pickford (Goalkeeper) – Pickford could do nothing about Mohamed Salah’s goal on Sunday and was one of the side’s best performers when they were struggling this season. The goalkeeper should remain one of the first names on the team sheet.

Cuco Martina (Left-back) – Martina had a mixed game against Liverpool but after the injury to Leighton Baines the defender seems to be the only option available to Allardyce, and he should get the nod to start.

Ashley Williams (Centre-back) – The defender has dramatically improved since Allardyce’s arrival and is expected to keep his place in the starting line-up.

Mason Holgate (Centre-back) – The young defender had a solid performance on Sunday and should make the starting XI after Allardyce complimented his side’s defensive performance against Liverpool.

Jonjoe Kenny (Right-back)- Made an absolutely critical block against Liverpool and it would be a surprise if he wasn’t named in the starting XI.
