Lo Celso reminds me of Lamela when he first signed, clearly a very good player but gives the ball away a hell of a lot. Think he'll be great once he adapts to English football.
They have the brilliance to break some of the rigid structures of some defence.

It makes you think how we could actually start seeing good football with Ndombele present, possibly Fernandes if he adapts well, Lo Celso if he gets more game time and Lamela if he stays fit. Not to mention any potential player coming in for if Eriksen goes.

Does no Dele contribute to this?
in my opinion yes. dele isn’t technically quick enough to play like that.

Will be interesting to see if Jose persists with 3 at the back vs Watford now that GLC & Lamela both deserve to start.

He can't fit them both in with that formation unless he drops Dele

Said it last week. Lamela and Lo Celso must both start. Work rate and quality.

Can see why José wants us to play longer, we are really poor on ball at the back when pressured
