    Personally, I think if you picked horses for courses, rather than a ‘best team’, Ginge should be in the starting lineup against Chelsky, anyway. His style of defending is ideal for this game. Like I would pick Sakho and Valencia for this game, but I’d have Carroll start against L’Arse. So no worries if Tomkins is out for this, but I would like him back for Sunday, as I think he’ll suit that game too.
