So we are in a better position as we now have two permanent players but our numbers are the same. We may well need to use Andros up top at times too - he was playing there ahead of Benteke at the end of last season, there are doubts about Sorloth's quality and Wickham has only just returned from a major, major lay-off. Until/ unless we sign another stiker he may start the season up top with Wilf again.
We have a different set of players for this season. A clever manager (which RH is), will readjust how we play in function of the new players' characteristics. Why would he just stick new players in old players slots ?
We have nobody like Ruben, (and Antonio is also not like Ruben), actually, Ruben is still difficult to define as a player.
