New captain Sam Morsy switches from 8 to 5, which he has worn at previous clubs, meaning Donervon Daniels drops down to 12.

Reece James also drops out of the ‘first XI’, switching to 26 from 2, which has been taken by Nathan Byrne.

Andy Kellett is another to fall down the order to 43, with his number 13 shirt being left vacant - possibly for the arrival of a new goalkeeper.
