Audere est facere

He does seem a man without an island at the moment, I think we all wanted him to be the Lampard of a midfield 3 but it hasn't worked out like that so far.
There's 3 options, either the Lampard position of the 3 as you suggested, we allow him the shadow striker role which has so far proven to be the best or he takes the left side of the forward positions similar to Ronaldo for Madrid.
Thankfully at 23 with gifts both technically and athletically, not to mention a great brain and attitude, he’s got time on his side.I don’t know where Dele’s at in this potential reshuffle. His stats have been superb since he broke into the squad but his technique, especially control and dribbling, can be woeful and exacting against a team looking to either press or catch us on the counter. Ideally, he’s best suited further up the pitch where his positional play and goal scoring ability, arguably his two best features, can flourish. But I don’t see how he works in a 433 that places a premium on pace out wide. He definitely needs to work on his ball control and quick distribution if he becomes one of the midfield three should we change formation
