Reaction on the forum:

Tir Na Nog: “Which basically he means he’s fit for Sunday, I think we’ve been trying to keep City guessing but this has spoiled it now.

The midfield still leaves a lot to be desired. I think England should have well moved on from Henderson at this point, Rice doesn’t need his hand held, Gallagher offers similar anyways but with more youth, JWP well worth a call up surely.”

Batman: “Southgate is truly an awful manager. It’s so frustrating to me that he’s allowed to put the handbrake on a squad this talented. The favoritism he shows to dreck like Henderson and Maguire is sickening. I agree completely, Rice is more than capable of holding that role down by himself. We could play a more dynamic midfielder next to him and Bellingham. JWP is certainly in good enough form to get a call-up on merit but look how long it took for Tomori to get one. Honestly, the only real surprise here is that he hasn’t tried to sneak his special boy Mason Mount in there.”

Some can’t quite believe that Ben White has missed out again:
