I agree that itíll be Davies making way for Gomes. Wonder if thatís part of the thing of making him captain? Showing him heís an important player and giving him confidence ahead of being rotated often with another player.
I imagine heíll introduce Gomes bit by bit so plenty of pitch time for Davies too.
Considering Gomes has hardly played over the past two seasons, we should not be expecting too much this side of Christmas. But, we live in hope! - Digne did not get much time with Barca and he is proving to be a great signing. Still, Gomes is still a Barca player, just as Vlasic is for Everton. If he plays really well, Barca will want him back. It's a catch-22. We want him to do well, but when he does it's likely "Good-bye, Blues" - or rather "adeos amigo"! (I don't think the contract has a 'buy clause'.)
