The unfortunate thing is that he is behind two right backs who are more experienced than him, we have a squad full of high quality players who all deserve game time.KWP is ready. He's already started PL games and was MOM in both of them. He is a better player than Trippier and Aurier. Its a matter of actually playing him, which Poch does not seem willing to do(or any youth for that matter).
Aurier and KWP should be our #1 and #2 RB's. Im still upset we kept Trippier instead of selling high this summer. His value is going to be shot by January.One game against Newcastle and another against Leicester where we gave up 4 goals in which he looked shaky defensively. I'm all for giving him a shot and more playing time but I'm not ready to throw him out against the big dogs yet.
Although not like I'm thrilled with any of the options at this point.
Kwp's ready to play in the EFL Cup, whatever the opposition.Maybe against a lower division team yeah where we can afford to take more risks...
The odd cup game here or there isn't going to give them a stat boost, this isn't FIFA...when they're ready they're ready.
