England's Expected XI To Play Spain In Seville Revealed
Gareth Southgate is poised to make three changes to the England side for tonight's UEFA Nations League against Spain in Seville, two of which are enforced through suspensions.
According to Sky Sports, England will be sticking with the same 4-3-3 formation used in the dire 0-0 draw with Croatia on Friday night, with both Joe Gomez and Harry Winks coming in for the banned John Stones and Jordan Henderson.
The other change looks set to see Kieran Trippier come in for Kyle Walker in a direct swap at right-back.

Ben Chilwell keeps his place on the left side of defence after an impressive display in front of no fans in Croatia, while it will be the same front three of Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and Harry Kane for the second game running.
Southgate has, however, confirmed that Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Jadon Sancho will feature against Luis Enrique's side after getting his Three Lions debut a few days ago.
After a superb start to the season, the former Manchester City youngster replaced Sterling in the 78th minute and became the first player born in 2000 to play for England.
"I would think it's highly likely he comes into the game," Southgate said in his pre-match presser, via The Telegraph.
"He's dipped his toe, he's done well and on to another level of challenge next.
"It's another opportunity to look at a couple of younger players. We're slowly building a squad who are comfortable at this level.... The only way for these guys to learn and improve is to play matches like this."
