There appears to be a growing number calling for a 4-4-2 and I can't say I disagree with the idea tbh Change is needed and this is an option open to FL.
I love Kovacic but I see Kante as better defensively and Mount as better in those dangerous positions Kante pops up in. I'd also say Kovacic is very dynamic over 60/70 mins and then there's a certain amount of burnout. Mount and Kante are proper 90 minute players - that is my reasoning. I personally think it's that area where we struggle most and need more presence there. Taking Kante off in games where we're chasing also gives our attacking play a boost from midfield.
We will probably see the same old at Fulham...it will finish Frank off if he doesn't start getting us going.
