Done ok nothing we haven’t seen before. Think he needs to be a bit more authoritative but I guess that comes with playing and confidence.

Done well so far, easily one of our better performers.

Composed on the ball, good positioning and found a few nice incisive passes. Made 3/4 excellent tackles too and energetic when he needs to be, calm when he needs to be.

Doesn't necessarily catch the eye or get the plaudits but he's a DM with so much potential. He will only gain more confidence and authority with consistent game time and development.

Love the fact he's playing at the base of a midfield 3, his best position.

Would love to see him given an opportunity in the defensive midfield position.

Wouldn't be surprised if Dier is initially in there though.

Dier is Mourinho's Matic unfortunately. Both are slow and easy to play round, but i fear that he will be in the team until the summer.
