Can’t wait for him to be back playing and hopefully stay injury free. Towards the end of last season when he was getting a good run of games he was hitting some really good form, I remember he was running the midfield v Barca and then that tw*t Rakitic took him out and he’s not been right since.
He started last season really well too but it’s them damn injuries, keep him fit and we will have one hell of a player and it won’t be a case of who plays alongside Fab, it will be who plays alongside Fab and Keita. It goes unnoticed but some of the things he was doing to teams last season was brutal; for example, he ran the show vs Palace and completely humiliated Townsend with that turn, like wise vs Bournemouth when he pulled off a double nutmeg (who the hell manages that?!). He’s shown plenty of glimpses to suggest that if he can avoid injury he can become world class IMO. But his latest set back seems to be stemming back to that bad challenge by Rakitic.
