“He has been great for us but last few games he has been leggy and loose with ball we should let him rest we have donk and Otasowie to take the strain.”

“Tbh no. That pass accuracy is lower than Palace where everyone was slaughtering him. One strike shouldn’t warrant a start.”

“I would be inclined to bring Otesowie and Donk into Midfield with Neves and drop Moutinho and Podence out to start the game- we need to win the midfield battle to get anything out of them”
