My first super sub is Patrik Berger (Czech Republic). After lighting up Euro 96, Roy Evans snapped up Berger for £3.25m and straight away became an Anfield favourite with his dazzling skills, powerful left foot, graceful playmaking and ravishing good looks.




When Berger is subbed on we will form a box midfield:
(the Czech star would thrive in this modern #8 role, with his impressive goal+assist output and high creative/defensive workrate):

Hazard - - Firmino - - - Bale
Berger- - -Lampard
Cancelo---Hamann

  • Ohhhhh ya beauty, what a hit son, what a hit!
If I want to go retro and play a classic 4-4-2, I can see Bobby Firmino being the perfect secondary striker foil for another centre forward.

I'm going to call upon 'The Yak' to be my backup #9. Yakubu Ayegbeni (Nigeria) was a goalscorer with different qualities to Bobby: a 6 foot battering ram, with power and pace, a prolific finisher in front of goal. Scoring 15+ goals a season for the likes of Portsmouth, Middlesbrough, Everton and Blackburn Rovers is an impressive feat. A very respectable total haul of 95 goals (moreover an excellent games to goal ratio for a non-top 4 club striker).

"Feed the Yak and he will score!"



Firmino - -Yakubu

Hazard- - Lampard -Hamann -  -Bale

If we employ the box midfield with Patrik Berger playing as one of the #8s, and Cancelo playing as the inverted fullback, I need a defender who is comfortable playing as an orthodox fullback, or as a centreback in a back three: the Spaniard Nacho Monreal will be perfect. Over 250 games for Arsenal, being a vital cog at the back in Wenger's last successful Gunners side.
