    Thomas is wellcome back to action

  2. Sean says:

    With Partey back, Xhaka playing very well and SmithRowe stepping up. This is our best 1st team trio in the middle until the end of the season.

    Behind with Leno in form, Gabriel back, Holding/Mari solid with Luiz providing support & Teirney bossing it at LB that makes me optimistic.

    On up to the top we have Saka who is our star, Laca who is playing his best football in the no9 role combining and integrating with these young boys & possibly Auba getting back in on the act with Martinelli maybe out for a few weeks. Not bad atm and still alot of players not mentioned here who need sold, let go or replaced.
