Congrats to Kovacic who won the player of the season award for 2020.

He had a brilliant campaign.

He was my choice Shak. Although, Pusilic would have got my vote with a few more games.

I haven’t checked but a mate told me I should look at how few games Kovacic started and I would be surprised. He was making the case for Mount or Tammy.

I have to agree Tom. Kovacic wins it for me too. However Pulisic's late surge was very impressive.

What are your thoughts on this year Tom, how would you set the team up given the abundance of talent to hand.

I assume 433 Shak and I guess for the first game of the season, Mount, RLC, CHO and Tammy all on the bench. Maybe James will start in front of Dave.

Every player will have to fight hard to start in the team and that’s the way it should be.

Kovacic had a good season, but didn't influence games with goals and assists enough for me.

Personally Mount was my player of the year, closely followed by Pulisic and Azpilicueta.

I'd love to see James get back to start, however do you think Azpi would see more of the bench this year?

I can see where your coming from J, I think Lampard worked really hard to improve this aspect of Kova's game. Hopefully he can improve.

I think James will get plenty of chances this season Shak.

Like all of these players, the squad looks like being very strong, so every player has to take his chance when it comes.

I can’t wait for the season to start.

Chilwell will miss the first few weeks with this heel injury, so I expect James to start on the right and Azpilicueta to start on the left - if we play a back four. Otherwise, with a back three, I expect Alonso and James to be wingbacks and Azpilicueta the right side center back. Chilwell will eventually make the left back spot his own, a lot of who gets the right side will come down to early season form whilst he's out injured; but there'll be plenty of opportunities for all.

Lampard's apparent desire for a left back, not a wingback, makes me think he wants to generally play a back four. I think there'll be plenty of choping and changing ahead of the defence, our attacking players are pretty much all interchangeable. Because of this it's going to be really important to have a settled back four, be interesting to see who pairs up with Thiago Silva in the middle.
