Hennessey
Wan-Bissaka Tomkins Sakho PVA
Luka Kouyate
Townsend Meyer Zaha
Sorloth

I like 4 2 3 1, but think Hodgson will go 442 and probably play Macärthur.

However against the cloggers I think Kouyate and Luka are necessary to allow the front 4 to play, and the fullbacks to bomb on

We need to match their muscle then beat them with skill

They are still missing Hogg in midfield so I'm not sure we will need to go with two holding centrally. With Benteke out, it would be interesting to see if Roy would consider 4-5-1 which would allow a centre midfield trio of Luka, Macca and Meyer. The latter pair could cause havoc running from deeper while Andros and Wilf out wide would prevent their wing backs pushing on and with PVA or AWB overlapping, it would scare them to death. That just leaves the front man. Perm from Ayew, Sorloth or dare I say even Schlupp - he started as a striker didn't he?

Agree with the set up but, against the brutality of Huddersfield, I'd have Kouyote in that middle 3.

I actually prefer this to my own earlier one a few weeks back. I can see Meyer dropping deep and helping out a lot more than a usual ATM. Think I'd prefer Ayew to start personally as that front four would be had to handle for any defence and he isn't too bad with his head either.

Like you say though, Hodgson is unlikely to change formation, but we may see most of that team starting if Tomkins is ready and McArthur still has a bad back.

I'd go for this too. Meyer on after an hour if we're struggling.

The one i would feel sorry for dropping would be McArthur as he does not deserves it but would be purely for tactical reasons for a change in the system, yesterday showed we were far too easily exposed and gave away possession for then to counter attack, this has got to change and i feel only a 4-2-3-1 would give us a better balance.
This is what i would go with for the next game and give it a chance to bed in.

Surely now that we know that Tomkins and Zaha are fit to start this imo gives us our most compact defensive formation along with our most fluent attacking option and possibly our best lineup for the forseeable future, the one questionable position is Ayew replacing Benteke. But with the total lack of confidence CB is in currently then we must give JA his opportunity to show what he is capable off and we know he can score goals, if not what would have been the point of bringing him along with the others in if not being played.
The one player i feel this is hard on is McArthur who has done what has been asked of him, but moving forward i feel this is the way to go.

Is Tomkins fit to play?
By the way, it is considered bad form to quote oneself, especially approvingly.

Can’t see Tomkins being risked after one training session (if true)

Zaha must start. If he doesn’t, we lose.

The first suggestion was when i assumed Tomkins and Zaha were fit, then they were not, now they are hence the new suggestion which is what i had said.
As for quoting "oneself" it happens frequently on here so is nothing new.
Don't take life so seriously.
