Totally agree, I went for Delph as I thought it was his best game for us yet, did all the simple things right and was all round tops for me.
Delph has impressed me so much this season. Not sure how much of it is to do with Pep or Delph just wanting it more, or maybe both.
And he cost us, what, £8 million or around that mark. Bargain!
Delph has been excellent no doubt. But its only a stop gap and we do need a specialised left back as cover for Mendy. Mendy got to the byline and crossed the ball regularly, Delph doesn't really do that much he prefers to come infield. But i don't want to be critical its just an observation.The lad has been excellent.
I think that's under instruction mate. He's playing that inverted fullback role probably owing to the fact that he doesn't have the engine that a Mendy/Walker/Danilo has and perhaps not as adept at getting beyond the last man to whip a cross in.
I agree though that we need a specialist, preferably a young player to fill in and also push Mendy for his place on his return. Delph could, if he stays fit, also backup Fernandinho.
