By starting Joe Lumley, Tom Holmes, Naby Sarr, Tyrese Fornah, Andy Yiadom, Cesare Casadei, Kelvin Ehibhatiomhan, Jeff Hendrick, N. Guinness-Walker, Femi Azeez, and Lucas Joao, it appears likely that The Royals will employ the 3-5-2 system.

With the following players starting the game for The Hatters: Ethan Horvath, Reece Burke, Tom Lockyer, Sonny Bradley, Cody Drameh, Marvelous Nakamba, Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu, Amarii Bell, Allan Campbell, Carlton Morris, and Cauley Woodrow, we are inclined to believe that The Hatters will most likely play in a 3-4-1-2 formation.
