Yeah, don’t get why he isn’t getting minutes.
I genuinely think he’s our best centre midfielder. Is that a mad shout?
I’m picking him above all three of those lads that started last night.
I think he has the best footballing brain of all of our midfielders, especially in possession. The application isn't always there which is where he gets a lot of criticism (gives the ball away, etc.) but it's something that should get better with minutes (which is why it's a shame he wasn't in the team more consistently last season and we don't know more about him).
I'd prefer the guy who has ideas and needs to work on executing them consistently over the likes of Gomes and Schneiderlin, who are both technically excellent but ultimately safe and predictable when we have the ball.
I also think Davies will suit a team with Bernard and Iwobi. I imagine we'd see some brilliant pass-and-move stuff in the final third with all three of them on the pitch.
