Agree re your point about comfort on the ball (especially v. Foyth) but the recent mistakes are coming from his body positioning against opposition strikers (which lead to the penalty on Saturday) but as you say, every reason to think he should improve given his age and Poch's knowledge of the dark arts of South American defending.Needs to improve with the ball at his feet. Foyth is superior in that aspect of his game and that's why I prefer Foyth playing in the 3. Sanchez looks nervous when he has the ball and misplaces passes or hits them too hard.
If he can improve that and cut out the silly mistakes costing us goals he will be great.
I thought he made a few dangerous errors last night. Once again allowing the striker to get between him and the ball far too easily for a player his size. He also had a few miskicks which led directly to attacks on our goal.Thoughts on his performance last night ?
Seen some people saying he was outstanding. His pace is an obvious attribute and he is learning from two giants so that will all help long term.
I actually find him better in a two either way I think all our CB have looked under par this season due to our wingbacks and chop change at CB...though in the long run over seasons it’ll benefits our flexibility in gamesI thought he looked really nervous tbh. He would have been a liability in 2 but playing in a 3 allowed us to cover his mistakes.
This goes without saying tbh.I think it's important to remember that he's still 22 years of age and is gonna make the odd mistake and look worse off playing alongside 2 of the best defenders in the league - This is his 3rd season playing in Europe, very happy with his progress thus far though.
Toby & Jan have been excellent. The fullbacks have been shit, but none of that has anything to do with Sanchez missing headers in the middle of the field or letting a striker run right in behind him.People saying he been making mistakes need to watch games and see how our defence as a whole have been poor this season. Last season Sanchez was superb.
