We won so you can't really argue any of DS' decisions, but Georgiou made far more sense to me of all our available options in the situation, and even with hindsight as Wilkinson contributed nothing up there.

Georgiou would be more used to playing that position whereas Wilko looked lost, Georgiou would have offered more energy and pace to press them high up the field and force them into mistakes/early clearances, thus making it easier for us to keep them at bay, and offensively he would have offered the threat of getting in behind them via a ball over the top or down the channels.

Wilkinson should offer better ability/strength to hold the ball up or to win flick-ons if that was our intention, but we didn't play that way with him up there, and he only won about one header after he came on and gave the ball away horrendously with a ridiculous pass (we've seen many times his inability to pass the ball!).
