But after bemoaning the physical condition of the squad and the absence of Kalvin Phillips, Southgate now looks set to change the formula in the hopes of sprucing up the displays.

According to The Athletic, Chelsea midfielder Gallagher, 24, will be the player trusted with that responsibility.

Alexander-Arnold, 25, was thrust into midfield from despite his usual position playing right-back for Liverpool.

However, Southgate appeared to have seen enough of his “experiment” after just 54 minutes against Denmark.

Gallagher, like he did in the opening game against Serbia, replaced him off the bench.

And it seems he has now done enough to earn a spot in the starting XI.

Baring any late injuries or surprise changes, he will likely partner Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham.
