Have to say, for a player who's attitude has been questioned, he said outright he wanted to leave but you wouldn't know that from the performances thus far. Hope he keeps it up in terms of performance but his professionalism has been great. Really hope this is the start of long term option at RB.

He’s a player who probably has too much pride to not turn up and put in a shift. You need more warriors like him but he is hotheaded yes!

Thought as good as he was against Palace that yesterday he was culpable. His final ball was poor and he did not race back to cover as he had against Palace. If Trippier has given that performance people would be asking for his head on a block.

Youre right but I think, and I said this before Olympiakos, he needs a run of games. He hasnt played much football and this sto start business is shit. Continue him for seven or eight games and im sure he will excel. I like him and he gives us a great deal more attacking threat particularly width

For such an experienced player there can be absolutely no excuses. He’s an outright liability.

From sublime to stupid. We all knew he had this in him, was hoping he had grown up a bit.

Another chance for KWP then.

Did he even make a tackle for the second yellow or did Redmond just run across him and go over thus getting him a yellow

Just think, if we hadn't been absolutely unforgiveable idiots in the summer of 2017, we could still have a top quality player in Kyle Walker at RB with a contract expiring in summer 2021 by simply doing absolutely nothing at all.

A. Why did we not sell him to AC Milan or PSG at the end of the window?
B. Why did we not buy a RB?!

Was a bit soft.

Redmond is a little **** to be honest. Tried to get Sissoko carded late in the game too

Is there a formation that doesn't use a RB? Would probably be the best option for us.
I guess 3 at the back does go away from a traditional rb, and Sissoko could play there.
Rose and Sessegnon on the left. Not sure thats the answer either.
