I was pretty impressed with his passing when he was on the pitch tbh. Didn't notice him giving it away much for them as I was keeping an eye on him.

Could look a lot better in a better side IMO.

Don’t think he has enough energy for a Poch team but he is certainly talented.

If we’re all being honest he was pretty pedestrian yesterday, I was actually looking out for him but apart from some tidy forward passing he was pretty much unnoticeable.

I have the same issues with him now as I had with him at Barca. He's slow, has a very low work rate and lacks concentration. There is no doubting his passing ability and vision. But his defensive side is awful. Deles goal yesterday summed it up. If Gomes hadn't stopped tracking back he would have got the deflection instead of Dele. We need someone more dinamic with a higher work rate in our midfield. Essentially a box to box player.

Looking at the video again...Gomes actually saw Dele running to the ball and just watched making no attempt to try to do anything to put him off

Where are you getting that from? I had a look on Squawka and on paper Gomes looks better than Winks this season - more shots, blocks, duels won, tackles won, 90% pass completion, etc - after roughly the same number of minutes (~700).

As I said, I haven't seen Gomes play and actually think Winks is much better than the stats suggest, but unless you're talking about Gomes' Barca form (he was shite for them) why do you think he's so bad? The Everton fans love him and are desperate to sign him and they watch him week in week out.
Gomes is very talented, but work rate is too low for Barca and Poch's style. If Poch see's work rate in him then he would still be at Barca cos Barca need that right now. Poch wouldn't have any chance of signing him.

Thought he was good not great. Once again, would be a good squad player but not what we need to really upgrade the midfield.

I saw that and was shocked. Couldn't believe it - no-one seemed to comment on it on MOTD or SkySports. Dele ran from behind him and he made no attempt to get that. Terrible!

They commented on it during the game, we scored 6 goals you have to ask what where Gomes and Davis going?

I liked Davis in his first season has he gone backwards? I think Oliver skip showed more determination than Gomez, winks and Sissoko seemed to put a lot more effort in.

The problem is he played in a better side at Barcelona and he was poor there too.

I've got nothing against the guy but I've watched a lot of him in Spain, for Valencia and Barca, and I really believe this would be a mistake. We need to be aiming much higher in my opinion.

A lot of people making a judgement on him based on one game...I haven’t seen much of him either but I’m sure a few opposition supporters may think/or thought the same of Dele and Eriksen. I’m not saying Gomes is on their level but between our two players I quoted they certainly have had more than their fair share of ‘off’ games in the past couple of seasons.

Off games certainly but never could you accuse them of being lazy or disinterested and Gomes was definitely lazy and disinterested against us.

I think both have come across as very lazy when not in form, Eriksen has lacked the bottle/determination to track back and Dele has looked like he can’t be arsed at times. Certainly not like Lamela who busts a gut constantly...all opinions though and don’t want to seem like I’m bashing our own players.
