Aw crap Col, you're crossing the streams!
I said the same further down - I want to get Kean into the side, but I think the best way of doing that is either a semblance of 4-4-2 with him and Calvert-Lewin (as you posted) OR stick with the current formation and switch out Sigurdsson for Iwobi (who has a more natural inclination to connect the midfield and forward line, rather than play as the furthest forward). As for 4-4-2 being old hat; with Sigurdsson playing so high it's essentially what we're playing anyway.
Either way, it would mean dropping our dead ball specialist to the bench.
Of course, I may be doing Sigurdsson a disservice here and the coaching might be that they want him to play so far up the field, in which case we'll see the same problem with Iwobi being asked to play the same way. I also think Gomes has to play a little higher because if you have one sitting (Gbamin) and one playing quarterback (Gomes) then there's always going to be a huge gap between them and the forward line (which is where Sigurdsson is currently playing).
