That was a great performance today and the kind we were seeing more regularly back in 2012-2014. If he does that more often he really can be considered a quality central midfielder. Even playing in a more disciplined fashion than he often does he’ll still get goals and catch the eye, due to the quality of the timing of his runs.
I think it’s why people, myself included, get so frustrated with him. He absolutely has the qualities to be one of the league’s best, he showed that for a season and a half back in the aforementioned period.
