Coulson in: Ipswich Town’s best starting XI from what we’ve seen so far this season – Agreed?

Published

on

Ipswich Town have failed to live up to the lofty expectations placed upon them in League One so far.

Many expected Ipswich to be right up there in the hunt for promotion, as Paul Cook made 19 new signings and showed plenty of intent in the transfer market.

Sam Morsy, Scott Fraser, Tom Carroll and Macauley Bonne were among the high-profile names to arrive, with another 15 players putting pen-to-paper.

But Ipswich have only won two of their first 10 games this season, and currently sit 19th in League One following a slow start to the campaign.

The international break has perhaps come at the right time for Cook, who will undoubtedly be looking to decide on his best team during these two weeks.

Here, we take a look at what we think is the best Ipswich starting XI from what we have seen from them so far this term…

Ipswich Town won their only ever top-flight title in what year?

Ipswich have three senior goalkeepers on the books, in Vaclav Hladky, Tomas Holy and Christian Walton.

Hladky has been Ipswich’s first-choice shot-stopper, making nine appearances in League One and keeping two clean sheets, conceding 13 goals.

But the truth is, we haven’t seen anywhere near enough of the other two goalkeepers to help their cause in this XI. Walton has made only one appearance, conceding five goals in the home defeat to Bolton.

Holy, meanwhile, hasn’t made a single appearance in League One, so even though Hladky has struggled, he starts in our team.

In defence, George Edmundson has looked a promising addition from Rangers, but Cameron Burgess has struggled, and Janoi Donacien and Matt Penney have been regulars at full-back of late.

Hayden Coulson has impressed since joining on loan from Middlesbrough, though, registering one assist in four appearances and showing plenty of endeavour going forward.

Lee Evans scored a hat-trick in the emphatic win over Doncaster Rovers, and alongside Sam Morsy, those two should be a good partnership going forward.

Wes Burns has also been a real bright spark on the right flank, scoring one goal and registering four assists from out wide so far.

Bersant Celina has looked a classy addition since he rejoined the club on loan, whilst Scott Fraser has also impressed since joining from MK Dons.

Up top, there is only one contender. Macauley Bonne is on fire in front of goal, scoring eight goals already this season.
