Spot on, good player but not good enough for where we want to be or how we should be playing.That's fine by me.
I love Moussa and really appreciate his qualities but if we're being really truthful with ourselves our performances in terms of fluidity dropped more so once he became a regular starter, especially against teams that set up with men against the ball.
When a game is stretched he's an asset as he can burst forward with the ball but as teams adapted to our style of play it's become tougher. Dembele had such incredible ability of holding the ball which allowed us to be play in tighter spaces and force through defences. Sissoko doesn't possess excellent close control which has meant we've found it harder to create against defensive blocks.
Winks will be able to focus on what he's good at.
If one person is to be the fall guy, it needs to be Sissoko.
