Still as important a player as he was when we first signed him. His lack of form can be attributed to many things but for me the lack of creativity from the midfield is the main issue i am seeing. Bobby is dropping deeper looking for balls that are just not coming. That midfield needs a severe shake up, hopefully Keita and Fabinho step up to the plate and with the Ox coming back things will improve.
Don’t think we can rely on the Ox this season , at best it’s sounding like a cameo at the end , I’m hoping Keita will step up and be that man the stage is set just step out and perform, who would have thought when we signed him the Ox would be such a loss,just goes to show how mis used he was under Wenger I think the same fate happened to Theo ,
Also think Salah should go back wide push Bobby back up top it was working no reason not to work again ,
