I'd have Sig in there ahead of Davies.

I did ponder.

I just don’t fully believe in him.

He hides from the ball a lot, which Davies never does.

Davies is capable of a throughball, haven’t seen Sigurdsson do that.

Sigurdsson is also really slow when he’s contesting lose balls, whereas Davies is good in those situations.

Sigurdsson has quality on the ball and can be a great finisher, but it seems very few and far between, and his set pieces are very hit and miss, and if Bernard and Digne step up they are more than capable of taking over those duties.

I do confess that the fee does make me expect more of him, but even if he was £20m I still think I wouldn’t be that impressed by him.
