So, without agenda, I have spent a chunk of my morning churning data into a spreadsheet to analyse our defensive combinations (league only). The games we played with a back 3 were too few to draw any sensible conclusions, so am focussing on the games we played with a 4. the data shows thus. It is fairy clear, the partnerships with Zouma and without AC are the clear winners

Pairing Goals Conceded Matches Played Average
Zouma Rudiger 4 5 0.80
Zouma Tomori 9 8.5 1.06
AC Tomori 2 1.5 1.33
AC Rudiger 12 8.5 1.41
AC Zouma 15 7.5 2.00

 

However.....I thought that isn't entirely fair, as conceding 1 goal at home to Man City, is better than 1 at home to Bournemouth, so I have tried to weight the rankings, with a goals conceded multiplied by the final league position of the opponents. It is not entirely accurate as a clean sheet against City qould equal the same score as a clean sheet against Norwich, zero. Luckily there weren't many of those to worry about, but the table looks thus:

Pairing Goals Conceded Weighted Score Matches Played Average
AC Tomori 2 2 1.5 1.33
Zouma Rudiger 4 45 5 9.00
Zouma Tomori 9 88 8.5 10.35
AC Rudiger 12 115 8.5 13.53
AC Zouma 15 156 7.5 20.80

 

The AC - tomori partnershp ranks best, but in just 1.5 matches has little meaning. The table pretty much mirrors the original. Zouma plus Rudiger or Tomori basically coming out on top. 

Took me ages, BTW, so you're welcome. And as proof there is no bias it actually disproves some of my earlier comments. 

Very good.   So basically Zouma plus one as long as it's not AC.

Ziyech and Chilwell out as expected but Pulisic could figure. He's been given the 10 shirt as well.

So relieved Pulisic has got over his injury :-)

Yes I wasn't expecting him back yet.

Same.  Whether he’ll start remains to be seen I guess
