Barkley and DD omitted apparently. Didn't take Tommy long to figure them out.

I imagine that more than even the academy players, the likes of Drinkwater, Barkley, etc., were there to make up the numbers in training and friendlies, and getting starts was a mere 'shop window'

Well yes.  Essentially we have been watching U23 games boosted by a few early returners.

Yeah I saw this too.  Apparently Rahman, Clarke-Salter and Sterling can be added to that list also.

The 8 players who got furthest in the Euro's aren't involved either, so I suspect that we will see a focus on the core likely to start the super-cup / season getting some serious minutes in their legs e.g. the German lads, Pulisic, CHO, Ziyech, Kovacic etc.
