Where would you play Jota? I don’t know how well set up as smith played a different formation at Brentford. I can’t see him getting ahead of Jack/SJM in the number 10 role and imagine the Egypt winger and AEG to be wide men in a 442.Hause, Konsa, Steer/Nyland/Kalinic, Hourihane and Elmo are alright for a newly promoted team for backup, but there's a long way to go for a squad fighting for mid table PL football. Jota will be starting methinks, so I don't think that's a back-up.
I disagree that we have a long way to go for mid table but accept that it will take more than one window.
