Should be starting over Cenk imo

I think I agree, but Iím a little torn.

Tosunís unselfish runs have been good for Richarlison and Walcott, but he just isnít getting into goalscoring positions, and obviously he doesnít offer much threat on the counter attack, either.

Didnít have a great game but had a tough job to do.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

I think with pace on either side Tosun is your man. Without that then Calvert Lewin is more of a threat

How about if we had pace all across the frontline?

DCL is the fastest in our squad isnít he?

Hoping he gets to prove me wrong.

That's not the only attribute required

Yes, Iím more than aware of that.

I think DCL can hold it up too, plus he would potentially give us more of an option to thread through-balls given his league leading pace  :smug:

Did well attacking the ball from the left side.

Also got in good positions on the left side when the full back had it but tried flicks, lay offs all the time with barely any/ none coming off.

All wide players have done well so far as the system is geared towards that area of the pitch.

I like how heís coming along but still (obviously) rough around the edges.

At least this week shows he will be getting plenty of minutes on the pitch.

He's definitely a great option alongside Tosun. I think Tosun plays with more intelligence but they will both play plenty

I know Tosun offers a lot for the side and works hard but the fastest player in the league is sat here on 3 goals so far. The potential upside to this lad is massive, I donít think there is any with Tosun.

Granted theyíll both have a role to play over a long season but I donít think itís necessarily a given that heís our 2nd choice striker for me. Heíll improve game by game if he gets chance to learn up tops

He has got three goals, but havenít they all come from him playing as a wide forward off the left?

They have but I can well imagine him and Richarlison interchanging positions quite effectively as they're both tall, athletic, fast and mobile. One or the other/both will get into goal scoring positions if theyíre both on the pitch.

Tongue in cheek for effect but he is apparently the fastest recorded player in the league so far this season.
