Its funny how Emery will most likely be given a very good set of players this season if we indeed buy a cb and Tierney. Yet they may all be wasted by his midfield philosophy. Modern football in the Premiership demands running power in midfield. Xhaka and Guendouzi have none of that. Sp**s will win the majority of their games by Ndombele and Sissoko running over teams and their forwards profiting from broken play. We are going to play a 4 2 3 1, with whoever as the 10 playing as a centre forward. On top of that we will have two midfielders who can't operate in a two. The double Pivot is outdated and pointless when you have a specialist holder in Torreira. Play him at the base and play Ceballos + one of Willock/Iwobi and Guendouzi ahead of him ffs.
