He definitely hasn't scored enough tho. that is my criticism of him. To play where he plays he has to get at least 10 a season or 5 with like 15 assists. he should be contributing to about 20 goals a season.
I was thinking that. Most people would agree that since the turn of 2017 he has been really good much more of a constant influence on a match. And that last year he had a poor season and wasn't a surprise for me he was down the pecking order at the euros.
However this season he's scored 5 and got 7 assists. Whereas last year he got 12 goals and 13 assists and they were all before the team downed tools from mid March onwards.
That's 12 goals/assists against 25 last year. I know dele alli plays more as a forward and is in a really good team but if you compare the stats this year in the league Ross has 4 goals 7 assists against Ali's 15 goals 5 assists.
We know Ross creates chances and his assist ratio over the last 2 years is far better than his first 2 seasons under Roberto where it was non existent. However I agree there isn't enough drive for him to get goals like alli has, he doesn't show enough conviction around the box when he has opportunities to score like when had rojo one on one down the right channel with space instead of going at him at pace taking rojo on his weaker side he slows the game down and plays the pass inside.
He has goals in him and he's played with far more sense this season overall, but 4 league goals isn't enough in 29 games from someone with his shooting ability and playing as high up the pitch as he does. Hopefully that's something which koeman can get into him that he needs to get into the box more, he needs to have that hunger to get goals and I can't believe I'm saying this after he was shooting from anywhere in his first season but he needs to get more shots away when he gets around the edge of the area.
