They like Joe Willock for that role but I don't think he has enough guile at the top level for that role. His level of skill is perfect for an #8 but they're shoehorning him to use his running power there. I think Nelson is indeed a solution for that #10 role because I think his dribbling in tight areas is much better, and I also think Nelson's potential end product is high. The issue for me is getting Nelson closer to goal and I think in this formation, #10 does that. His throughballs may not be as good as Özil at his best, but his combination play is an underrated strength and used effectively in that position, could facilitate more chances for the forwards - better retaining of possession in final 3rd and better 1v1 quality. It's a risk on paper using more of the Hale End boys but I think they'd have more chemistry than the team now. All of our combinations in our "best XI" have issues.
