Davis should start before Alioski!
Davis is the only one who can play CB on the bench. But Strujik could drop back if needs be. I'd have put Casey on the bench just as insurance

Doesn't sound good for Casey's future prospects. Alioski would never start before Davis for me.

5'5 according to Wikipedia and Football Manager

5'8 on transfermarkt

I always through he was too short at CB but Bielsa has played him there a few times in the cup games

Kiko might come on as sweeper just to baffle Villa?

Super sub for me.

Wasn’t even playing 90 mins week in week out last season. Expecting his game time to be managed even more this season.

Davis would make more sense to me at LWB, but Alioski adds an unpredictability that might work for us in keeping Matty Cash quiet.

The only predictable thing about Alioski is the number of offsides he'll incur, particularly with VAR - just hope it doesn't bite us.

I wonder about that. If he'd be tempted to push Strujik into the back and allow Dallas and Alioski more freedom
