      Been saying it for a while, he needs to play more central as a hub, that is where we will see the best in him, which in return will improve the team immensely. That was where he was at his best for Leipzig. Give him #10 role and some freedom, #8 or #6 in a 2 man midfield or a #6 in a 3 man midfield!

      Or to simplify......just play him centrally and not as the sitter ;)

      What a game from Naby.  Love how he moves forward with the ball and he will link with our front three even better  with more games. Proper box to box midfielder. What an awesome player we have on our hands

      On boy what a midfield we are going to have when these lads all click. Naby looked great today settling in really well .
      Wait until he plays on Tuesday he will not have seen support like that before.

      Glad he got hooked because it hopefully means he will start on Tuesday night. Less of an impact playing on the left today but still a decent performance, tidy in possession and a few nice touches. It’s a massive boost for him to find some fitness and form at such a critical stage of the season.

      Some good flashes of play, but can occasionally get beaten a bit too easily imho, and drifted out of todays game. Plenty of time to work on things though, obviously has ability, and Jürgen has shown he can get the most out of players.

      Looked a bit out of sorts tonight, went down a few times before going off injured.
      Could be wrong, but doesn't look 100% fit either, seems to be holding back a little.
      Would be great if he started to hit form heading into the 2nd half of the season..

      Noticed a dressing on his back, was that from before the game or from the first knock he got early on?

      Doesn't seem to be moving freely whether he's carrying something or not quite up to speed not sure

      Bullied out of the game early on.
      Went down too easy at first but then got hammered every time and got no protection from the ref.
      Not his best game and I thought Mane might have been moved left to bring Shaqiri on, but Lallana getting some minutes in the legs instead.

      I might have been really, really stoned but I was sure that foul was there and another 3 straight after it that the Ref didn't give Naby. Was fuming at the time.

      Was kicked and shoved all over the pitch without any protection.

      He is a huge talent and probably why he was targeted just as he was starting to run the midfield

      Have to say I thought he struggled all game.

      Took a couple hefty ones for sure and you can see the difference his bursts could make but he’s my only partial disappointment so far.

      Really thought he’d be ripping up trees by now.

      I’m sure he’ll pick up - huge talent.

      I totally agree with you,the lad has class and is a big asset to the team.

      He has the quality, it will take a bit longer but eventually he will deliver.

      Not worried about him. Good player who will get better the more he plays. Wide left is probably not ideal for him, but I'm not second guessing Jürgen with us unbeaten at Christmas. Keita will be fine.

      He is going to have to learn how to pick his fights he kept running into brickwalls on Friday. I do love the way he just gets the ball and goes forward I think he will soon get the hang of the Prem just like Fabhino has again the New Year will see the best of these players

      He's too light weight, he needs more muscles and he will be fine. He needs to improve his strength and we will have a world-class player.

      I am not worried at all about Naby, all the quality is there to see, he just hasn't quite found his rhythm yet, but he will and then WOW!
      I must say that all our signings in the summer have been outstanding, I honestly can't think of a better transfer window in recent memory.
