      Fingers crossed for him that he gets the games he needs - it’s clear the manager rates him and there is a player in there that will give us that something extra from the middle of the park

      I truly hope he stays healthy. He could be a huge asset to us next season. His ablity to go box to box is something that no one else can do, and something we really need.

      Absolutely sure that we said this exact same thing at the start of this season.

      He just needs to stay healthy and fit but I fear, I have more chance of winning the lotto then that happening!

      That was a great little cameo if only he could stay fit.

      Thought Jürgen had lost patience with him before now - so was a surprise choice to start - hindsight is a fine thing, but it was a bad decision.
      Subbing him the way he did, going to be hard to come back from that - must be out of his nine lives by now.

      If he picked up a knock it was half an hour too late to keep us in the game.

      I dont get his inclusion at all. Our teams are built on a strong midfield and if Naby is it, it's no longer a strong midfield.

      Hes a luxury we can't accommodate. Time to move on for all concerned. Christ knows where he could move to because there can't be many in the market for a player who's never fit, and rarely any good.

      No worse than Gini and getting picked cold having played virtually no first team football against experienced players like Kroos  and Modric no wonder Klopp got schooled.

      Surely he should have had some minutes against Arsenal if plans to play tonight especially with lack of game time this season

      If you made a list of top 5 worst players in the first half, he wouldn't even be on it, but he is fragile and lacks rhythm right now, so he's the default scapegoat.

      If he is truly injured again at some point Jürgen needs to move on from him. It's just not going to work out if he can't stay fit for 45 minutes.

      Tactical apparently although he did say it could of been one of many . Maybe he thought Naby out of the 3 wouldn't do 90 anyway so may as well be him rather than subbing him later anyway but he didn't look right

      Manager didn't do him any favours tonight but have to say it does now feel like the beginning of the end for him at the club.

      Real shame we never got to see the supreme talent from his Leipzig days. Remember watching him a few times before he moved and he looked an absolute star.

      Talk about fitness all you want but he was the worst player on the pitch for me. Just look at his movement. Has no clue where he needs to be and shows zero desire when on the ball. Absolutely dreadful. Should never play for us ever again.

      Its a shame he got thrown in cold like that. I really like the player and think we need somebody who does what he can do.

      As far as I'm concerned tonight is not on him. However, the issue remains the same, unless he can stay healthy for much longer stretches than he currently manage then it's not worth keeping him in the team. In that case I think selling at a loss is better than keeping him, paying the wages and wasting his spot for, in the end, 0 return product.

      I still believe we need somebody with his qualities and style of play and so I wouldn't be against buying a similar player to him.  We need somebody who can be creative around the box and run at defenders from the middle.

      He wasn't a scapegoat he was gassed out after 30 mins, could barely track back when we were in desperate need of defensive cover. It's not even his fault he's clearly not match fit for a game of such intensity.

      The blame lies solely with Jürgen for starting Naby he should have known he wasn't ready to start.

      Anyway he's a talented player but needs to go in the Summer either we're not the right club for him or his body isn't right for the PL.
