Generally not one to go looking for negatives after a 5-1 thumping or any win, in this case of the Arse, but I mentioned before we started these three games (prior to the Newcastle one), that I'd rather not see him yet in high-paced games against the top 6. Even against Wolverhampton, a good footballing team that pressed us, he struggled in the first half.
He has looked very good and comfortable against teams that sit back and allow him time on the ball, he can pick a pass, looks composed etc., but I haven't seen him have a good game against a good team yet, to be honest. I'm sure he'll improve over time and will get used to the higher pace in top PL games, but so far he has been fairly average. Far too casual on the ball sometimes and that pass in the first half, unforgivable in my opinion. Didn't have a clue about his surroundings it seemed. You can't have that. It nearly cost us against Wolves and could've cost us again tonight. It will come back to bite us in the ass at some point.
Improved again as the game went on, but by then the game was already won. Needs to up his game if he wants to keep the likes of Wijnaldum and Henderson out of the team against top opposition. No coincidence it'll likely be Henderson starting against City.
