Re: Danny Drinkwater

Surely if West wood gets suspended then Hendrick will automatically take his place, with Lennon on the right. Hendrick may well move inside but I really can't see Lennon playing much (certainly starting many games) going forward. He's been on the bench most of this season but hardly ever been used ...

There is nothing to suggest that he should replace any of our midfielders.

I think Westwood has 4 yellow cards atm. He's highly likely to get another in the next couple of games I would suggest.

Brady was very bright. Played a couple of neat reverse passes for the late goals.

I actually think he could be effective playing as a no 10. He can be effective when he's in the middle of the pitch rather than stuck out wide where, for a winger, he sometimes looks uncomfortable and cramped for space.
