England's predicted lineup against Bulgaria

England will take on Bulgaria in their second Euro 2020 qualifier match of the International break on Monday night, hoping to pick maximum points. 

Gareth Southgate's men were shocked 2-1 last week away in Prague against the Czech Republic,  which halted their qualification to next year's showpiece. 

They will, however, qualify with a win against the bottom-placed side, should Kosovo fail to beat Montenegro. 

The Three Lions were 4-0 winners last time the two sides met at Wembley, and Southgate's men will be confident of a win in Sofia. 

Southgate is said to be keen on shaking up some departments of his side, with the defence in particular set to be reshuffled. 

The pairing of Harry Maguire and Michael Keane struggled against the Czechs on Friday, and Southgate is thought to be keen on replacing the Everton man with Aston Villa's Tyrone Mings.

Danny Rose is suspended for the match, and that leaves Leicester’s Ben Chilwell as a clear starter in the left-back spot. 

Southgate will have a decision to make on whether to retain Kieran Trippier or give a starting berth to Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Having failed to sparkle in his first start for the Three Lions, Mason Mount might find his position taken by teammate Ross Barkley, with the manager also having a decision to make on whether or not to start Harry Winks following Rice's latest fitness struggle. 

Predicted England starting XI: Pickford, Chilwell, Maguire, Mings, Trippier, Henderson, Winks, Mount, Sterling, Sancho, Kane
