If that goal that he scored had stood (and it really should have), would you still say the same about him being a passenger and hardly touching the ball?
As for keeping your mouth shut until you saw how he did, well 2 games isn’t good enough to make that judgement. Hell, it takes scouts more games than that to suss out a player. How about judging him after 10 games? Also, we don’t exactly play to his strengths always. When we play quick, one touch stuff, and get the ball into the box in a hurry, that’s when he will be most dangerous. Against Stoke, our build up was slow, with a million side ways passes. Each time he got the ball, he was immediately surrounded by 2 or 3 defenders. And let’s not forget, he can play on the wings too, like he did in the first game, so he is not limited in the roles he can play.
