Gave the ball away in bad / dangerous positions a few times but other than the his overall performance was really good and that finish was excellent.

With experience hopefully he'll cut out the poor passing at times because that can be costly, but he's definitely becoming a key player for us regardless of injuries

Tom Davies appears to be improving all the time, which is something that I'm delighted about.

I thought he did well against Leicester City in general. He gave away possession a few times, but that can be expected when you are trying to get the ball moving forward quickly to put pressure on the opposition. The goal he scored was brilliant and probably a lot harder to finish than the two chances Mina got. I just hope he fits in with whatever the new manager has planned.

Yeah thought he had a mixed game overall but it was a fairly thankless task in the first half.

Great finish and importantly he kept going.

Would still like a system that puts him further forward more often as his footballing ideas (if not always decisions at this stage) are very good.

With this extended look we've gotten this year, I've become more & more convinced that he could be one of those guys who, if surrounded by other high quality talent, will be a star. Like some of Liverpool's players. They're not great individually but as a unit are excellent.

Yeah he's got something about him, it just needs time to develop and for him to settle in to a specific role.  He's got things that need ironing out but that's only to be expected with the lack of game time he's had until recently.  I think he's got the potential to be boss, maybe not elite level but certainly he's holding his own now, so a few more years experience and he'll be very very good.

Really needs to work on the accuracy of his passing. Especially his passing under no pressure that needs to be into space or the players right or left foot. He seems to be about a meter off and causes all sorts of problems for the player receiving the pass.

Kills momentum very often with those passes.

I think this has become more noticeable with him as the focal point of the middle. We've been utterly dominated in the midfield these past 3 games with so many out injured.

I think we’ve been dominated in midfield because of the outdated, traditional 4-4-2 we’ve played has meant that Holgate and Davies have been outnumbered in there.

A tweak to a 4-2-2-2, and they suddenly have some help, plus Bernard and Iwobi look better coming infield, as well.

I like Tom but he’s going to have to raise his game dramatically if he wants to be part of Ancotti’s squad. He wasn’t alone in being poor today but the amount of times he gave the ball away in bad areas, was criminal. I’ve got no issue with players losing the ball when trying a trough-ball or being dynamic around the opposites box; that’s high risk, high reward stuff. Tom, however, gives the ball away in our third or around the halfway line. Still think there’s a player in there but needs to step up.

He looked absolutely knackered imo. He makes some poor passes but a couple of those that he made yesterday looked suspiciously like they were made by a player dead on his feet.

I'm worried about some of the training we've got going on if people's levels are dropping like this, I get that it's a busy period but there is a team not that far away that played in the club world Cup final, then came back and smashed Leicester away with pretty much the same team in a similar time frame. You don't see their players that tired that they can hardly pass the ball like Tom yesterday
