Certainly has shown an eye for a pass, gets forward we’ll, but his fitness levels and defensive work are shocking. God knows what we have here. Could be great, could be a liability.

Needs to play in a midfield 3 with a holding midfielder behind him. Can't wait to see him alongside Lo Celso.

I don’t think he’s a CM at least in a 2 Or if he is then needs a very strong DM beside him. For me he’s an AM. Just let him get on the ball and do stuff. In a way imo he’s capabilities are very close to Eriksen in what he can do and where he can play. Saying that he was definitely trying much harder on Tuesday than he was yesterday.

He looks very lazy off the ball. Stood still for a lot his 45 minutes .
But he's struggling with the pace, and being asked to play in a set up which is asking way too much of him right now. Seems crazy to me, the space he's having to cover, when he clearly isn't up to it.
tbh though, none of our midfielders are up to it. So playing in a system that requires a couple of Kante's, is making it tough.
He commitment has been questioned in the past by former coaches. Also could have a weight issue but if pochs training and fitness regimes are as tough as made out this should not be a problem.
