He seems to be box to box so far. I'm not sure that he's going to be a genuine defensive shield like Gana, but he picks the ball up deep and gets things moving and then pops up in the opposition area on the ball too.
You can see the trust that Gana especially but also the other players have in him. Always showing for the ball and usually gets it.
There were 2 stand out bits for me in the 2nd half. One was where he took out I think 3 opposition players with a simple body swerve and quick shift of the ball. The other was where he exchanged a couple of simple passes with Gana and then just suddenly popped an inch perfect high ball over the full backs head to I think to Lookman. It was the way the pass came out of nowhere that impressed me, and as I keep reminding myself it's especially impressive given his lack of playing time and in theory sharpness.
I'm trying not to get too excited about him, but I'm so impressed by what I've seen so far.
