But I’m not the one who is mentioning Coquelin’s defensive stats all the time. Only just a few weeks ago there was a Squawka comparison that was supposed to prove that he’s better than Kanté…
And again, his defensive stats are still just as good as they’ve always been. So the argument that unlike in the previous two seasons, he’s now not doing any defending, is not true. His flaws are just becoming more obvious now when he doesn’t have anyone doing all the work in possession.
Also, it’s funny how you and the other Coquelin fans, are quick to point out that stats are bullshit as soon as you mention other midfielders’ stats.
I only mentioned Arteta because for some reason, you still rarely see him described as a “ball winner” even though he was making more than 5 tackles per 90 in the 13-14 season. Flamini was also supposedly “bringing something new” when he first joined. I disagreed with that back then, just like how I disagree with how Coquelin ever brought something new.
