I've been impressed with Sadio during preseason and the first two games. Very lively, lots of different runs without the ball and quick decisions with the ball at feet. However, yesterday he looked a lot like last season Sadio. Lots of wrong decisions with the ball at feet, takes on way too many players and his dribbling sluggish by his standards.
I'm not sure it would be fair to directly label him as reverting to last season's level since I genuinely have liked what I've seen from preseason up until yesterday's game (yesterday's game, so far, is the odd game out of the bunch). Also, there was about 2 or 3 other players that had an average game yesterday (Hendo, Robbo, and both Mo and Jota to a certain extent). However, if he does indeed revert to that level then Jota will take his place sooner rather than later.
