What did we think when he moved centrally?
I’ve been under the impression that if he moved centrally, we’d be overrun. I’m not so sure now. Obviously he doesn’t do much defending, but he rarely loses the ball or misplaces a pass. Him being in the centre with someone out wide (Gordon) who helps the fullback out defensively would mean that Doucoure wouldn’t have to cover the right flank as diligently and could focus his attentions centrally.
Obviously there’s nothing wrong with what he’s doing now and I’m not pushing for it to change lol, but Gomes feels like a weak link to me.
