Twitter's got an extraordinarily high percentage of absolute whoppers. Didn't even notice him having a particularly bad game - certainly not stand out.
If I was a footballer I would not be sitting there scrolling through replies at all. I suppose he is only a young lad and still relatively recently thrown into it. I'm sure he'll learn to take it all with a massive mountain full of salt.
Just watched the game again and agree his game was really not bad at all. In the first half he puts in a lot of good touches and is active in the press, tidy in possession. He does his part for that good performance. I bet his analytics come out pretty strong.
He does get caught in possession for their first goal (2nd half), but they were double teaming him in the press and he didn't have a passing lane, tried to dribble out of it and failed. They still had A LOT to do before scoring a goal.
But it becomes trendy, including on here, to say this or that player isn't good enough (to be a backup in this case), and while as a professional footballer it is fair to have his performance criticized, last night is a good example of people shooting first and looking at what actually happened later.
Also agree these players should totally ignore their mentions on social media. It's just not worth it.
