Seven goals and four assists in half a season of football, his first at any level let alone the top flight, in a team that hasn't created much all season tells us he's got something to work with.

I agree he doesn't look like a genuine finisher but he's been feeding off scraps all season and he's still mentally finding his feet at this level after a pretty rapid rise, starting with the winning goal in a World Cup final.
He, like everyone in the squad, will benefit from a stable managerial situation and someone from an attacking point of view putting an arm around him and coaching him through his finishing/movement. The fact we have the dinosaurs at the minute on borrowed time indicates he's on his own and like the rest of the kids will have to bear with it until things settle down, which isn't ideal at a crucial stage in their development.
