I would feel more comfortable if this is mainly down to Sigurdsson, rather than it being Silva’s actual instruction and wish.

However, if it is down to Sigurdsson’s choice, why isn’t Silva calling him on it? Surely he’d be hooking him more often if this was the case.

Sig is an experienced international. If he's ghosting through games it's on no-one but him, regardless of what instructions he is or isn't under.

No-one instructs him to hide behind a defender when his teammates have the ball.

I hope youre right.

Hopefully well see if hes taken out of the side.

I have always argued that Davies' is one of the best in the squad in terms of first touch and his ability to use his feet in tight spaces. He has a really nice turn when under pressure, and has an ability to draw a foul. He then has vision and the ability to pick out a throughball, but rarely gets the chance in CM, as he often comes too deep to affect the game.

My concern defensively is that he is too lightweight to be CM, and tends to give away poor fouls. He often gets beaten too easily, and his recovery is often mediocre, nibbling at opposition's feet giving away fouls.

I do think because of the above that his best position will be a no 10. There is no doubt that he has the quality on the ball to be a top player, but whether he will get that opportunity with Everton I'm not so sure.

He also has the ability to pass sideways or back ways too many times pick up silly bookings and letting the game totally drift by him

So the same as every Everton central midfielder since Arteta left?

True, but he is only 21. To put that in context, I was surprised to find that Harry Winks is 23, I'd assumed he was about 19/20. Two more seasons and who knows where Davies could be. First team regular at Goodison or plying his trade a step down. I think in his position he needs those couple of seasons.
Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustained him through temporary periods of joy.

Send him on loan then.

Absolutely no point in him being here at the moment.
Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

I would agree if Gbamin hadn't just got injured.  But also you can't make him captain one season then send him out on loan the next!

Loaning him out with Gbamin injured, and Delph likely to be, would be crazy, lads
