Stones is a first team player. He was injured thats why he lost his place. He has had a fantastic season so far and improved dramatically under Pep’s management.
Lol I can’t resist. Because as much as I like Holding, you can’t say a player with two or three senior appearances is better than the most expensive English defender who’d have a couple seasons with Everton behind him and was highly coveted by a lot of managers. Bad form was the only thing that dragged him down last season. Stones is a top talent and one of the best English defenders that has emerged in a long time. He has a very high ceiling.
