His pinpoint ball through to Sterling in the second half that sterling fucked up was nearly worth the entry fee alone.
Against stoke he was apparently shit but put two pin point crosses on a plate that we should have gobbled up, thats just off top of my head im sure there were more.
Given the alternatives i suggest we play him back into form and maybe rest him for the odd easy match if hes nackered, certainly wouldnt consider dropping him for the dippers.
Coutinho not in great form, do you think they would consider dropping him against us on sunday? Not a chance.
No one is denying his ability or that he can turn it on, but we've been 'playing him back into form' for a couple of months now and it's clearly not working.
We could easily rest him and play Yaya and Fernandinho in the middle, with Silva, Sterling, Sane and Aguero ahead of them.
Stoke at home was the perfect opportunity to rest De Bruyne but instead Pep rested Silva and Sterling.
De Bruyne will get his form back. He's too good not to. But every player needs a rest from time to time. No harm in it.
