Tarkowski Branthwaite Mykolenko
Harrison Garner Doucouré Onana McNeil
DCL Danjuma
I'd also been thinking the same for a while now, and for the same reasons.

Whilst we've been doing well recently I'd also be a bit loathe to change winning formula, but on paper we could certainly use a 352 merging from/to a 3421 or our current 4411, as an option. Dyche has played multiple formations with us last season so it's not new.

It'd suit Myko better and wouldn't stop him making the runs from deep.
Allow Patterson to get into the team with more cover, as with his pace he can fly down the wings, generally a good crosser too.
Harrison has played as Attacking Mid, just behind the striker before, and him and Doucouré would be pressing machines just behind DCL, both have the legs to drop back when required.

Ideally, Patterson goes to the championship on loan when Coleman is back and we get two wingers who can do what McNeil and Harrison can, get up and down all game.
Madness to put all your eggs in the old and creaking Coleman basket. Could be injured at any time.

Also Patterson just needs games and coaching, games and coaching. We knew he and Myko were not the finished article when we got them, but they’re good enough to learn in the Prem, not the Championship.
