I know this won't be the usual, but at some point for a game or two I want to see this starting lineup:
Sanchez - Martinez
Asamoah - Barella - Brozovic - Candreva
Skriniar - De Vrij - D'Ambrosio
We don't really have two good defensive midfielders though
Our midfield is actually quite weak defensively. Brozovic is a very all-or-nothing player defensively, a huge tendency to commit reckless challenges. Barella is our next best option defensively but isn't even starting for us right now. Vecino is rather useless defensively minus some jogging that makes it look like he's trying.
Not defensive midfielders, midfielders who are defensively good. Brozovic is very good isn't it, also I though Barella was good (didn't watch him enough).

Thanks, then obviously I'm wrong on midfielders who are good defensively part.
The premise of your statement is still correct, though. I fully expect to see a 3-4-3 at some point.
