RW - Miguel Almiron: Some fans aren't going to like this one as he can be hit and miss, but Almiron will start in this match. As fans, we must get behind EVERY player, as Miguel Almiron does provide a lot of attacking threat. Let's just hope he attunes his end product in time for this derby day.

CF - Alexander Isak: Since Wilson is injured, it is down to Alexander Isak. Although, he is higher in the pecking order anyway, especially given his goal against Liverpool recently. The Swedish international will make the most of this opportunity as he hopes to provide the hoodoo-breaking goal against our bitter rivals.


LW - Anthony Gordon: In my opinion, Gordon has been our player of the season so far. His work-rate makes him the best possible option for Eddie Howe on the wing, as he will constantly track back and cut inside, occasionally providing cover for Tino Livramento who would like to overlap.
