Formation (3-5-2 A-League Season 2019/20 Players)
The formation would consist of two attacking wingbacks, two centre backs, three central midfielders, two wingers and two strikers.
Starting 11: Daniel Lopar, Harrison Delbridge, Alex Grant, Aaron Calver, Josh Risdon, Luke Brattan (Captain), Steven Ugarkovic, Milan Duric, Connor Pain, Roy O’Donovan, Jamie Maclaren
Substitutes: Tom Glover, Ziggy Gordon, Ryan Kitto, Josh Brillante, Bernie Ibini-Isei, Trent Buhagiar
Daniel Lopar is a goalkeeper that plays for Western Sydney Wanderers who played predominantly with three defenders in A-League Season 2019/20.
Harrison Delbridge is a defender that would be suited to playing in a back three. That’s despite the fact that Melbourne City played with four defenders in A-League Season 2019/20.
Alex Grant was a part of a back three for Perth Glory in A-League Season 2019/20.
Aaron Calver played as part of a back three in the A-League Season 2019/20 finals series.
Josh Risdon played right wing in a five man midfield for Western United A-League Season 2019/20.
Luke Brattan leads by example. The Sydney FC midfielder’s passing game would be suited to a 3-5-2 formation.
Steven Ugarkovic works hard defensively and can score goals. Most of all the Newcastle Jets midfielder is a quality player.
Milan Duric was a bit of a barometer for the Central Coast Mariners in A-League Season 2019/20.
Connor Pain played left wing in a five man midfield for Western United in A-League Season 2019/20.
Roy O’Donovan played as a striker and scored goals for the Newcastle Jets playing as part of a 3-5-2 formation.
Jamie Maclaren would complement O’Donovan well as they could form a good combination in this system.
Tom Glover of Melbourne City would be a good back up goalkeeper.
Ziggy Gordon from Central Coast Mariners would provide cover at the back.
Ryan Kitto of Adelaide United would benefit from playing as an impact player.
Josh Brillante of Melbourne City is a versatile player.
Bernie Ibini-Isei of the Newcastle Jets is a good option to have on the bench.
Trent Buhagiar from Sydney FC can change a game off the bench as an impact player.
