Today’s XI sees us round up the best benchwarmers in world football. Our list includes Chelsea, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Manchester City stars, as well as players who left Arsenal and Manchester United looking for glory but finding only a spot on the sidelines. We explore why Samuel Umtiti is still on the Barcelona bench, why James Rodriguez can’t seem to get a minute, and the England striker who Timo Werner could displace next year. Let us know who you would have included in the comments.
