Quick turnaround, between Saturday night’s match against Crystal Palace and Wednesday evening’s game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Changes need to be made not just to personnel but to the formation.
Rico and Smith as wing-backs, Danjuma or Brooks behind Wilson. Assuming Billing and King are injured and Brooks may not be able to start.
Wolves v AFCB
Eddie Howe confirms Philip Billing injured his ankle a couple of weeks ago but should be back in the squad for the trip to Wolves.

With that in mind I’d go with this:
Rico (against Traore, that could be painful but prefer a left-back over there)
L Cook (deep-lying role helping to turn the ball over quicker)
H Wilson proved to me again why he’s not got a right to start for us Saturday. Yes, he’s capable of brilliance, but he was completely anonymous and this has been the case too often.
This won’t happen though, Eddie Howe clearly doesn’t rate Rico for whatever reason. I’d also like to see Surridge come on before Solanke. Surridge has scored 20x the senior goals Solanke has.
Problem players vs Palace for me were both Wilson’s, King, Smith, S. Cook. Refresh is needed, especially for such a quick turnaround. Would rather put King up top and bench Wilson but he’s injured now. – Join the conversation, click here.
