I wonder if we're seeing a Gana/Silva development in the mould of Kante/Sarri? Gana definitely had more license to get about the pitch on Tuesday. I could see it working, but a hell of a lot relies on Morgan being able to string a few performances together.
The 'axes of doom' as I think @kramer0 described a holding two of Morgan and Gana may not be quite so terrible if the latter has been told just to go and be a mad bastard all over midfield and not be so positionally disciplined.
Kante has always had good ability on the ball which means he can play a more advanced role.
I don’t think Gana is as bad as made out by some with the ball, but you won’t get anything consistent out of him in that role.
Wouldn’t be against it though. Morgan can pick a pass from deep and reads the game very well, something Gana can lack.
We suddenly have options in the midfield now. I’d personally like to see a three of Davies, Gana and Sigurdsson for the derby.
Davies plugs the gap that comes with having Sigurdsson in the midfield and has the best usage of the ball out of everyone in that midfield.
Think we’ll see a lot of chopping and changing now as silva looks towards next season and evaluates who can be a part of this rumoured midfield revamp.
