He'd be performing better without the weight of expectations, the #2 to somebody like Giroud. Or apprenticing to Lukaku. There's just a wide gulf between "not ready to be our sole attacking option" - because the alternatives are Rooney (wandering, declining), Niasse (impact sub at best), and Sandro (mystery box).
Personally, I'd play 4-4-2 with Sandro starting next to DCL so maybe sharing the load and responsibility helps each man. Let them play into form until we can hopefully add in January.
Hopefully "Hammerin' Hank" Onyekuru gets here next season.
This...exactly this......please Ronald......
