He a tower of power. Like a magnet for dangerous balls around the box.
Does get dragged out a bit because of that, and I'm not sure I'd fancy him over 60 yards but in shirt bursts he can cover ground and he hardly ever loses a duel.
Although they played well yesterday, still prefer to have a combination of Holgate with one of Keane and/or Mina. Holgate's pace, combined with the covering back of Lucas and Seamus, combined now with Allan and Dacoure, makes us look better placed to deal with opposition attacks.
Our overall defensive shape yesterday was also very pleasing to see, considering it was the first competitive game they had played together.
