Need another CM who can run
Thought Davies looked a bit better as an energetic final third player when he came on, which is where he originally broke through.
In contrast to last year when he was playing as a deep lying sort of sitter, which is where he played for England youth levels.
Story of Davies I suppose, a square peg without a natural hole.
He should really be our 4th or 5th choice cm, with Doucoure, Allan, JPG, Delph and Gomes all ahead of him which is about £120m+ worth of talent, and for that to be an academy boy who doesn't disgrace himself over 600-900 minutes a season, absolutely fine. Eg at United behind Pogba, Matic, Fred, Mctom is probablyyyyy... Pereira? At villa, Newcastle, west ham, Leicester it's probably some no name academy kid.
Unfortunately, Gomes, delph and Jpg have injury and ability issues, so he has to step in sometimes and appear to be the 3rd choice. He's not enough for that.
The jpg, Delph and Gomes situations could do with resolving. That means another CM who can move, compete and not disgrace himself on the ball.
