It made for some difficult choices, more especially in defence and midfield.
Here's our latest line-up in a 3-2-4-1 formation.

Keiren Westwood (Sheffield Wednesday)
Comfortably of a best of a bad Owls bunch at the KCOM Stadium.
Granted, Westwood conceded a second-half penalty, but without his first-half heroics, Hull would have been out of sight at the interval. The sole Wednesday player to emerge with any credit on Saturday.
Dimitri Cavare (Barnsley).
A constant thorn for Bradford City with his power, athleticism and energy on Saturday. One of Cavare's definite good days as he impressed both in defence and going forward.
Liam Cooper (Leeds United).
Solid as a rock on his return to the first-team fray against Derby and marshalled his defence superbly and showed leadership aplenty.
Jordy de Wijs (Hull City).
Excelling during Hull's golden return and his partnership with Reece Burke has been an eye-catching one in recent times. The former PSV player is coming on a ton and was dominant in the air and on the deck against Wednesday.
Adam Forshaw (Leeds United).
Arguably produced his best display in a Leeds jersey on Friday and showed the poise and class which persuaded the Whites to shelve out 4.5m to sign him.
Kevin Stewart (Hull City).
The dominant force in the engine room against Bannan and Hutchinson and was here, there and everywhere in a controlling performance.
Jack Clarke (Leeds United).
Different class on the right-hand side for Leeds in his first ever start at Elland Road. Splendidly set up both goals and confirmed his status as one of the hottest properties in the EFL. Remember the name.
Cameron McGeehan (Barnsley).
Pulled the strings superbly and produced a masterful schemer's performance against Bradford. A silky player with poise and authority when he is on song.
Lewis Wing (Middlesbrough).
Making the most of his chance in the Championship after starting out at non-league Shildon. Struck Boro's opener at Birmingham and also set up Britt Assombalonga's winner. Imposing himself on the Teessiders' season and establishing himself in their first-team line-up.
Kamil Grosicki (Hull City).
Tormented Wednesday's harassed defence on Saturday and was seriously in the mood from the opening whistle. A lesson in wing craft and his thoroughball for Hull's penalty was a delight.
David McGoldrick (Sheffield United).
Billy Sharp may be the Blades' main man up top, but McGoldrick is not too far behind. Made the difference for Chris Wilder's side, with another performance of nous and quality.
Daniel Stendel (Barnsley).
Orchestrated a fine Yorkshire derby victory over Bradford.
And here is our Team of the Week in a 3-2-4-1 formation.
