Would completely transform our attack if we had a proper right sided attacker in the team. Neither Lo Celso, Eriksen, Lamela or Son want to be there. And Poch refuses to play Lucas.

Lo Celso in the midfield 3 with Ndombele + Sissoko would be ideal with Kane, Son + a rwf.

I wonder if Sessegnon can play there.
Not true at all, he started him there vs Newcastle.

Personally think he'd be best in the David Silva role on the left of a 3, with Ndombele on the right. Issue is you need a properly good DM to sit behind them because they'll get a few tackles in but that isn't their forte and you don't actually want them to be sitting too deep anyway. Those two are the building blocks and we have competent back ups too them. We just need to find the third piece of the puzzle. I'd be willing to see the club part with a huge sum of money to get in a very good DM.
Agree with this if we went 4-3-3 tbh. NDombele and Lo Celso ahead of Winks would be fine if Poch got the whole team pressing like we used to.

Most true DM’s are more defense based and this can slow down the transition in midfield, Sissoko has substantial defensive capabilities and his forward passing is starting to improve drastically too. I feel we’ve found a nice balance at the moment and I don’t think we need another new addition to the team when we can improve much more in other areas of the pitch.
This is something I've noticed too. Some lovely incisive passes the last few games. (Still like a proper DM, though. Peak Wanyama would be perfect, although if I'm being greedy, I'd like a DM who passes the ball a little better than he did.)

He’s obviously got quality but he’s playing in a poor team at the mo. Will take a while to get up to speed in the PL.

Looked really exhausted towards the end but still tried to move the ball up the field and make incisive passes. Really needs to play centrally and not on the right in order to get the best out of him.

Thing that stood out was how one footed he is.
That will get easily found out.
Was he trained by same person as Lamela ?

I genuinely don't think it will be an issue. I have seen enough to suggest to me that he is going to be a great asset for our first 11.

How many right footed players rarely use their left foot? Loads. It just stands out a bit more for left footers

I didn't watch the game today but did he play on the right again all game?

I was there and he played most of the game on the right, moved left after Dele came off. I do think he is too one footed to play right but he's ideal centrally or left.
