Im convinced he'll start at Watford

Nope. Guess he gets the lower-tier cup match next week

I thought he played a bit of a blinder against Villa, especially second half.

Hes an automatic starter over Walker IMO , offers so much more to the team.

im baffled why walker is still considered our #1 RB. cancelo offers far more and seems far less prone to errors.

I think our great finesse-loving leader has a soft spot for sheer power and brutality at full back :D

Absolute trash. All three first half chances for Arsenal were because of him.
In terms of on field performances he is as bad as Mendy and doesnt get the same criticism for it, and he should

I can't put a blame on him as even he doesn't know what position he played today.

He didn't play LB today. Plus, he played it effectively for Juve at times. He has never played well since joining City.
His defensive effort was abhorrent. He just threw his hands up and walked around

He’s played in his actual position about five times for us. Today he was playing CM? DCM? Who knows? When he’s had consecutive games in his own position and cost us goals I think people will treat him like Mendy.

In defence. Yes. But he was also there for attacking more I think and is in general.

WhoScored gave him MOTM and a 7.7 and Fotmob who can be more tough with ratings gave him a 7.8

You sure about trash?

He’s next on my list but Mendy is still streets ahead of him in the shit department so I cannot really deviate at this moment in time .
