I think there's a common belief both have done infinitely better than they have been. Pickford has been average. DCL quite a bit short of average. It's a pretty common opinion on here that they are both a bit special. DCL isn't currently good enough to be playing top flight football
That take on DCL is madness. What he isn't good enough to do is CARRY A PREM SIDE with Top 6/7 aspirations, which is what we have defaulted to out of necessity.
