Just needs to start finishing those chances, and getting his head up before those cut backs. He gets into terrific positions and busts a gut at every opportunity. He could have had a bunch of goals so far this season.

my god, is he frustrating... very poorly composed in the last third. in space, playing under their backline he'll do fine but with the backline in front of him, it's a struggle.

I'm surprised at the negative reactions, I thought he was silky last night, especially his control. If I was a scout I'd have signed him at Forest and now watching him at spurs I'm certain he's going to be class.

Noticed him tracking back as well yesterday (obviously something he's not used to).

He just needs a bit of luck and not to lose his confidence and I think he will be a major player for us.

Nailed on starter for us now. He has massive potential.

Plays better on the right than on the left as he’s more likely to fizz a first time pass/cross, as he did almost immediately when he moved their last night and for Richy’s goal the other day.

It didn’t quite work for him last night, but you can see the potential there.

Needs a spell on bench. Hopefully few players back will mean he can be taken out of starting 11 and coaches can work on his confidence. Offers very little at the minute. Never looks like doing anything with the ball when he has it other than the safe option.

Ive defended him since he has been here as he has been involved in a lot of our dangerous play...but im starting to get a bit concerned. He is very weak, doesnt take his man on or use his pace like he should do and always seems to stop and pass it back. It is still early days and I am sure he is finding his feet but todays performance is why I was so concerned when we signed him.

Imagine hes played too much like the rest of the squad. Would benefit from a few sub appearances against tired legs.

genuinely hard to do much worse than he did today. it's one thing to be an absolute void of creativity. it's another to constantly lose focus on the game, be second to every ball and fail to read almost every progression. woeful is an understatement. if he can't make things happen on the last third, I at least expect some commitment, effort, engagement and assertiveness in the other phases of play.

He's so frustrating. We've got a winger that doesn't want to take his man on. The only time he runs is if the ball is played over the top

Still young, still raw in his first season with us, would like to see more but can see he’s got something. Maybe he’s starting more than everyone imagined with all the injuries.
More patience, more improvement and he’ll be a good player.
