He's a proper player isn't he, all over the pitch, nothing fancy just wins the ball and finds a simple pass

I think yesterday he showed another side of his game, he was doing much more than the simple pass and was dictating play at times.

He looked much more than just a 'destroyer' yesterday

It's interesting, the last 2 games he's frequently been further forward positionally than before, generally further down the pitch than Barry.

Wonder if that's Koeman wanting us to pose more attacking threat against weaker teams, and trusting Gueye to get back when he needs to, or if it's more that he's seeing more and more the attacking qualities that Gueye can bring.

Could well be that Koeman wants us to win the ball back further up the pitch.

Gana seems to be a magnet for loose balls, if he is position ally further forward he can pick up the loose balls when attacks break down and let us maintain the impetus.

Gana would walk into the Liverpool and Arsenal side.

Hes better than Xhaka IMO but the shite will have Keita next season who is basically Gana but good going forward too
