    Really balanced squad that literally no players are going to weaken it by any degree..

    Yup.

    Our striker department is stacked:

    Benzema - had the best year since long time and racked 31 goals and 8 assists in all competitions last year.
    Timo Werner - is one of the most talented young strikers around and scored 21 and assisted 7 last year.
    Paco Alcácer - was revelation in the Bundesliga, scored 21 goals in all competitions and after initially loaned Dortmund bought him outright.

    Having said that top out of the lot is still Kane - 32 goals 8 assists in all competitions last year and a proven combo with Eriksen pulling the strings behind - practically the two best Spurs players that propelled them to CL final and CL finish.

    Good thing is that we can easily go 4-3-3, 4-2-3-1 or 4-4-2 as we have plenty of depth in attack.

    Same in midfield really - Rodri was player of the month in March and one of the contenders of team of the season. Kante after a slow start picked right up and was one of Chelsea's best to finish the season in top 4 and also winning CL.

    Eriksen and De Jong go without saying - both fantastic displays for their teams in Europe and also domestically. De Jong also won the league and along with Rodri and Felix are one of the most exciting prospects subjects of 100m value from various teams.

    Rakitic had a solid season winning the league whilst Modric won the Ballon D'or on the back of his WC performance, although he didn't reach the same heights in the league it was hard season for Real and it was telling.

    Insigne also had 15 goals, 6 assists season and was also instrumental for Napoli in the group stages of CL scoring 3 goals.

    Our best front 6 is probably:

    ----------------------Kane
    Insigne--------Eriksen---------Sterling
    ---------De Jong----Kante/Rodri--------

    although guys like Firmino, Benzema, Rakitic etc will narrowly miss the cut.

    back four think picks itself:

    Sandro-----Maguire/Hummels---Lenglet---Wan Bissaka


    Goalkeeper based on performances last year should be Gulácsi, although I initially preferred Neuer due to his distribution, but either way we have plenty of players capable of taking the ball out from the back - Hummels, Lenglet, Maguire, etc..

    Updated team:
    [​IMG]

    Solid 4-3-3 formation.

    Team based on the great synergy between Eriksen and Kane - two of Spurs best players last season that went on to reach CL final and top 4 finish. The team is complimented by Sterling who had a phenomenal season - 31 goals and 13 assists for club and country for the past season and Insigne - 16 goals 6 assists on the opposite flank.

    In midfield we have 2 of the brightest prospects and one of the best midfielders in their respective positions for last season - Rodri and De Jong.

    In defence - Hummels led Bayern to another title, Wan Bissaka proved to be the top RB in Premiership for the last season and currently wanted by United for record fee. Maguire who started off with great WC with England and solidified his name in England.

    On the left is Alex Sandro - everpresent for Juve in their title winning campaign and on goal Peter Gulasci who was BL best keeper for the past season.

    Just make sure there’s a max of 6 players from one manager...

    You must have played all your players though by your third game (in final if you get there)

    Manuel Neuer: He returned after big injury and won the BL with 11 clean sheets in 38 games in all competitions.

    Wan Bissaka: One of the best right backs in the world right now, worth over 50m. A wall at the back he made his name as one of the most balanced and excellent defensively full backs in the league. Palace player of the season.

    Alex Sandro: Still one of the top left backs in the world and another world class season winning the Serie A.

    Mats Hummels: another one who won the BL and had a very solid season at Bayern.

    Clement Lenglet: Formed very sound partnership with Pique for Barca winning the league. Both good on the ball and also sniffing out danger.

    N'Golo Kante: Chelsea's most consistent performer and best player after Hazard.

    Frenkie De Jong: Revelation of the season. Reached SF with Ajax in the CL and won the domestic league.

    Roberto Firmino: Although Sane and Salah usually steal the show he is one of the most creative and versatile players around. Can play either wing, striker, SS and his movement is fantastic. 21 goals and 9 assists last season.

    Joao Felix: Another revelation of last season. 20 goals for Benfica, just transferred to Atletico for over 120m EUR. Won bunch of awards last year - Primeira Liga Player of the Month: January 2019, SJPF Young Player of the Month: January 2019, UEFA Europa League Squad of the Season: 2018–19, CNID Best Revelation Footballer of the Year: 2019

    Raheem Sterling: Along with Aguero arguably City's best player, won domestic treble this year. PFA Team of the Year: 2018–19, Premier League PFA Young Player of the Year: 2018–19, FWA Footballer of the Year: 2018–19

    Karim Benzema: Probably the most consistent Real player this year and generated one of the best outputs in terms of goals/assists. Scored 30 goals in all competitions and Trophées UNFP for Best French Player playing Abroad: 2019

    @Enn @borobob @Shane
    Please finalise a starting XI for the final

    (you should have fielded every player in your squad now).

    @Joga bonito we should use everyone that we haven't so far right? If that's the case our team basically picks itself out.
