Played really well last night.  Didn't look out of place at all.

Don't expect him to start Sunday though and there's nothing wrong with that.

We need Gueye and Schneiderlin to come back in to form and they deserve a chance at that under Unsworth.

Beni will act as an able deputy when needed.

Hopefully his performance will act as a wake up call to both as they have been really poor to date but have been relatively secure with their own positions in the team, particularly under Koeman. Gueye must be feeling the more vulnerable as he is the most limited footballer of the 2 we currently have in midfield and I think Schneiderlin has much more ability

We've got some great youngsters on the books haven't we? Really exciting future ahead with Davies, this Beni chap, Lookman*, etc.

Add to this the fact we have got Pickford, Keane, Sandro and Klaassen (once they find their feet) who are all 24 and younger, we've got great potential in the team.

*I hope Lookman decides stay, give him minutes and let him play. Same goes for Barkley too, him signing would be a big boost for the club

It does look good, although I disagree about Klasseen, I think his days are numbered especially considering the new manager comes in and despite a senior withdrawal picks an U23 player and he didn't even make the squad. Things move on fast in football and you'd could easily argue hes dropped even further down the pecking order. Wouldnt be surprised at all to see him go out on loan in Jan, depending on who the manager is.

Yeah I suppose that's looking likely. I'm just jumping aboard the positivity train about it all.

I still think he might make it. He needs runners around him, and good movement off the ball I think, which we have lacked all season because a lot of our players prefer the ball to feet. I'm not giving up on him after a dozen appearances.

Plus Schneiderlin and Klaassen is not like for like

To be honest im losing track of where Klaassen can and cant play? I thought he would have suited a 3 in midfield as by all accounts hes more of a box to box midfielder, similar to Davies.
