England’s Euro 2021 Squad Bet Specials - Left-backs

England’s Euro 2020 Squad Bet Specials - Left-backs

We’ve started to look at the options that Gareth Southgate has available for his Euro 2021 England Squad and what odds the bookies are placing on each player to be part of the 23-man squad. After previously looking at the centre-back options, we’re moving on to the left-backs. We’ve provided bet slip links that will take you to the relevant slip for each player should you wish to back them. Please note the odds are correct as of 13/01/21.

Ben Chilwell - 1/12

According to the bookies, Ben Chilwell is the first defender on Gareth Southgate's teamsheet, as he is the favourite out of any to be picked, ahead of Trent Alexander Arnold and Harry Maguire who are both priced at 1/10.

Left-back is an area which England have struggled in when the Chelsea man has been absent, as England have often opted to use right-backs such as Kieran Trippier there.

Throughout qualifying for the Euros Chilwell played in five of England's eight games, with Southgate's men winning all of those which he featured in, including a 7-0 home win against Montenegro where the 24-year-old made three assists.

Chilwell would suit the current system that England play, which tends to rotate between 5-2-1-2 and 5-3-2 as he is an attack-minded full-back, which is backed up by the two goals and four assists that he has scored for Chelsea in 14 Premier League games this season.

Bukayo Saka 5/6

Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka is the second favourite to be called up to Euro 2021, with the 19-year-old impressing in the Premier League, having made three goals and one assist in 15 appearances for the Gunners.

Saka played in both of England's last Nations League fixtures against Belgium and Iceland, impressing on both occasions despite the fact that Southgate's side failed to qualify for the semi-finals of the tournament.

The 19-year-old made his England international debut in his side's 3-0 win over Wales in October and has earned four international caps, which means that he is no longer eligible to play for Nigeria's national team, despite the Super Eagles showing a lot of interest in selecting the Arsenal youngster.

Saka is priced at 5/6 to be selected in England's Euro 2021 squad.

Luke Shaw - 4/1

Luke Shaw is next on the list, with the Manchester United man looking to go to a tournament with the national side for the first time since 2014, where he was the youngest appearance maker at the World Cup in Brazil.

Shaw hasn’t made an appearance for England since August 2018, where he assisted club teammate Marcus Rashford's goal in a 2-1 defeat to Spain at Wembley. The last time the 25-year-old was involved in Southgate's squad was in November 2018 for England's Nations League fixture against Croatia.

Since United made the purchase of Alex Telles from FC Porto in the summer transfer window, the former Southampton full-back has shown vast improvements in his form, with a 70% tackle success rate, as well as having a crossing accuracy of 33% in the Premier League, notably, Shaw made an assist for Bruno Fernandes' equaliser against Everton in the Red Devils 3-1 league win over the Toffees in early November.

The selection of Shaw does, of course, depend on the United man not picking up any major injuries before the tournament, as he missed the last Euros in 2016 due to a leg break away at PSV in the Champions League in late 2015. Shaw has previously shown versatility whilst playing for United, as he has played as both a left wing-back and left centre back for the Red Devils when they have used a five at the back-formation.

Luke Shaw is priced at 4/1 to be picked in Southgate's Euro 2020 squad.

Brandon Williams - 12/1

Manchester United's Brandon Williams comes in as the fourth favourite, which may shock a few, as the United man has only played six games in total for his club this season, most recently starting as a right-back in the Red Devil's 1-0 FA Cup win against Watford this month.

Williams had an impressive breakthrough season at Old Trafford in 2019/20, dislodging Luke Shaw from the starting line-up due to some strong attacking displays down the left-wing. Following his debut as a substitute last campaign in a 1-1 home draw against Liverpool in October 2019, the 20-year-old made 35 more appearances for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side last season, earning the youngster an opportunity to play for England's U21 side against Andorra in October, which the Manchester-born full-back started in.

The United youth academy product will most likely need to go out on loan this January if he is to give himself a fighting chance of being picked for the England team.

The 20-year-old is priced at 12/1 to make the cut for Southgate's Euro 2021 squad.

Honourable Mentions

There are a few English players that have played at left-back and are outsiders for a chance in Southgate's squad, such as Leicester City's James Justin. The 22-year-old has six caps for England's U21 side and has played at left-back on 12 different occasions for the Foxes this campaign, making two goals and two assists, most recently scoring a stunning long-range effort against Stoke City in 4-0 win for Leicester at the Brittania Stadium in the FA Cup third round.

Justin may be on the standby list and is priced at 8/1 to be picked by Southgate - Click here to claim this bet in your bet slip!

Meanwhile, former England regular Danny Rose is priced at 33/1. The Tottenham left-back hasn't played a single game for his club this season having fallen out of favour under current manager Jose Mourinho, prompting him to be loaned out to Newcastle United at the back end of last season. Rose's chances realistically hinge on previous displays for England, as well as getting a move away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this transfer window.

Rose who has 29 caps for England, earned his last in a 2-1 European Qualifying defeat away against the Czech Republic in November 2019.

The Tottenham man has the odds of 33/1 to be involved in what would be his third international tournament for England.
