He was only pressured in a half-arsed manner for about 20 mins of the game and those 20 mins he looked like a spring chicken. The rest he had absolute freedom to just ping the final third and that may look alright, so does Elneny in the same situation.
I still feel that in a tough game where our opponent actually tries to win the midfield to control the game from there we’ll end up being so badly fked we’ll leave a #metoo hashtag on our official twitter afterwards.
A midfield that is poor under pressure = why we look alright at home but look like dirt away. However we have a long history of coaching midfielders well, eventually he will realise some of that Basel potential… amirite?
