    I could see him going to Bayern on loan. I think Tuchel wanted that extra DM so he could have Kimmich at RB off the ball and into a midfield box on it.

    Angel Gomes is no defensive enforcer but he's not as bad defensively as his stats might suggest; he's certainly not a liability there. He's also excellent in the build-up and is arguably the most effective English midfielder in the first phase of play, something that would be a huge asset to how England play. You can't say the same about Ward-Prowse who while solid enough defensively is still worse than Phillips and Hendo in that department and on top of that is also fairly average in the buildup.

    He's definitely not a like for like with Phillips but he'd be a great asset to play next to Rice in a double pivot in certain games.

    Guehi back starting for Palace and Grealish on the bench for Man City. Johnstone still starting vs D Henderson at Palace.

    Walker, Foden, Gibbs - White the only English starters. Phillips, Grealish, Hudson - Odoi, Lewis, Yates, Worrall on the benches.

    Gibbs - White has come in for some criticism from Forrest fans recently for not being quite at his best so a big match for him today.

    And he must be thinking about actually moving Foden centrally despite his recent comments.

    Big game for Phillips now he is on. With Rodri suspended for three matches he might get a start in one of those if he plays well.

    Hatrick for Kane in Munich.

    Also the first Bayern player to score 6+ goals in his first 5 Bundesliga games. I'm calling it early, Kane's going to go down as one of England's all-time greats.

    Is he not already. Record goal scorer already with possibly another 10+ goals to score.

    He already is. Anyone who Denies that is either an arsenal fan or a scotsman/welshman.
    He's undoubtedly the best striker we've ever had, the stats don't lie. His assist record for a striker is equally as impressive, you'd be forgiven for thinking he's a number 10 sometimes.

    Not according to all those numpties who were saying, even just a few weeks ago, that he had to win a trophy first.

    4th Englishman to score a Bundesliga hat trick after Sancho, Keegan and Tony Woodcock.

    Harry Maguire and Mason Mount both miss out on Man United’s squad meaning Rashford is the only senior English player involved with Dan Gore on the bench.

    He's the best out and out English 9 I've seen. I'd love nothing more form him to lead us to a trophy. He deserves it more than anyone.

    Kane is possibly in the top ten of scorer / providers ??

    Messi is obviously at the pinnacle

    Maguire probably would've started this game as well. It's a dreadful United line-up all in.

    Will Ten Hag go if they lose tonight

    Yes he is injured. With an undisclosed minor injury. Missed their trip to Munich mid week as well.

    If he does get sacked social media is convinced Southgate will be poached to replace him.

    Kane has 12 goals and assists in his first 6 games for Bayern. Weirdly though he's 3 goals behind the BL top scorer currently who is Guiressy of Stuttgart who has 10 goals in his first 5 games! I think Kane will probably beat him to the top scorer title.

    Southgate is at Turf Moor watching Burnley v Man United. There is only Trafford, Brownhill, Ramsey and Rashford playing. Was he hoping Maguire and/or Mount would be involved?

    Trafford is another one who could easily get a call-up sooner rather than later. Nobody really has that 3rd keeper spot nailed down.

    Maybe. Particularly as Ramsdale might be another controversial pick soon for playing time reasons.
