England ‘leaked’ line-up v Senegal: Bold decisions made on Newcastle United, Arsenal & Chelsea stars - gallery

England’s ‘leaked’ starting XI to face Senegal in the last 16 of the World Cup.

England take on Senegal for a place in the last eight of the World Cup - but who will Gareth Southgate name in his starting XI?

Simply, it’s win or bust for the Three Lions in their World Cup journey now. Southgate’s men topped Group B following a 3-0 win over UK rivals Wales but now face a much sterner test as they enter the knockout stages.

And after making four changes for the midweek win over Wales, Southgate has a number of selection dilemmas. Kieran Trippier was dropped for Kyle Walker and Callum Wilson missed out on the starting XI again. Both Newcastle United players, particularly Trippier, are hoping for a recall.

Here’s England’s ‘leaked’ starting XI - based on what’s being reported. Should Southgate’s side win, they will either Poland or France on Saturday.
