More questions than answers!
I think already, managers have looked st what he did against Huddersfield and nullified it by doubling up and stopping the early cross. He then gets caught out of position when he loses it.
I think he is the one who will have to learn to adapt his game.
At the moment we seem to be accommodating him and Mahrez at the expense of people who did the business on either wing last season.
I don’t know what the issue with Sane is big trust the management team that there is one. But Sterling is playing well even on the left.
I’d like to see Mendy learn to play in a back four in a 433..
Fern and Silva x 2 in the middle and any 3 from Kun Jesus Sane Sterling up front.
I think against teams that pull ten men back we could load midfield at let the full backs rotate the width positions with the wingers.
Anyway tactics are Peps department but I think it’s up to the likes of Mahrez and Mendy to play their way into the team, not be handed a position to get used to it.
Mendy has shown what an asset he can be but also what s liability.
Mahrez has shown nothing so far.
