Lets have it right, he has been the victim of circumstances this season. Losing our protective midfielders has allowed teams to pick him apart defensively in ways teams never could or will again.
Having Fab and Hendo at the back and Thiago as our deepest midfielder was never going to work, the cogs in the machine were taken away and placed in the wrong places and the whole thing broke down.
Finally, we have a centre half partnership that is beginning to blossom, we have Fabinho putting out fires behind the full backs. Hes also starting counter attacks from a much higher position than we ever could for most of this season. Trent is now freed to impact the games and because he and Robbo are not longer our only mode of attack and he is a real threat to teams once again.
He alongside the introduction of Jota and the work Fab was doing behind him, won us that game yesterday.
Simply put if you get the structure around him right, he's the best in the business in his role. This applies for a lot of our players.
