Why? Eccles played more than Kelly last year.Just think while Kelly is there he won’t get the games he needs to really kick on. Would rather he went and bossed L1 than got twenty mins here and there. Injuries aside we don’t tend to swap out CMs much.
If MR picks Kelly ahead of him then you've got to question that decision. Eccles is clearly good enough and still improving. Kelly is heading in the other direction apart from a purple patch at the end of last season.
Play Eccles and leave Kelly out.
