He is playing as CAM and I can't remember anything good produced by him in the last few games. Just look at Kagawa in Dortmund and then compare him to our current Müller. He needs to play much better if he doesn't want to be benched.
And I'm also against Kroos - Schweini in the midfield for now. I think Kroos works so much better as CAM
Well to be honest, this correctly applies when playing against "park the bus" teams. Muller needs space and attacking support to operate at his best, so against defensive teams he lacks both. Kroos on the other hand, has the ability to make that "killer pass" that could break apart such defenses.
Whereas, I would by no means bench Muller in open games. Even if he is currently facing a dip in form, his work rate and extremely intelligent use of space would at least lead to a couple of major chances. Kroos is more favorable of a slow tempo and would not excel at CAM in open-space games.
