Fitting Pucciarelli in: Who misses out?

On Monday, Melbourne City unveiled versatile Italian Manuel Pucciarelli as the club's third signing ahead of the 2021/22 A-League season, posing a dilemma in regards to which of our starting XI regulars misses out.

Though the 30-year-old is capable of playing out wide, comments from club Director of Football Michael Petrillo - in addition to the existing presence of star wingers Andrew Nabbout and Mathew Leckie - would suggest that Pucciarelli is to be used as a central attacking midfielder or second striker.
