Central midfielders should influence the game, he doesn’t, it’s as simple as that. People are praising him for 3 performances against poor opponents, against these opponents he should be taking control of the game and absolutely bossing it!
last night he actually chased after his mistake & won the ball back, why should I notice that? I shouldn’t, it should be the very least he does.
People are praising him up when in reality he’s doing very standard things, our expectations are so low that some are grasping at straws to make him seem better.
