"Or do I give the three guys who have basically had a better season a chance?"
For example, Alexander-Arnold, Ashley Young, Fabian Delph and Eric Dier can play in defence and midfield, while the attacking midfielders included also offer a certain fluidity. Most fans seem happy with the decision, too - Hart was seen as a liability in England's disastrous Euro 2016 campaign and has hardly improved his reputation in the two seasons since.
