Gerrard and Meireles alternating throughout the game both have the intelligence to play such a role in terms of playing the link man and supporting the striker, both players have the game and endeavour to join up with the attack.
Cole for me is the best in the option on the left he offers invention, the ability to beat a man and when to come in field. Whether he was promised the central role or not is irrelevant, it's what is best for the team.
Pulsen I've chosen is he is nothing more than a player that sits in front of the back 4, will offer good protection and keep things simple. Sunday he was used as the link player which made him look absolute kack.
That for me is our strongest eleven at this given moment in time.
