    I think hes been in and out of the side and hasnt yet found his stride.

    Not unreasonable, IMO.

    Most young players have a difficult second season. Although Alli had a difficult third season (last season) instead. Sanchez is properly class though, so I have no doubt he'll be fantastic again soon

    Physically he can be a beast.

    One thing he needs to learn is how to use that physicality to his advantage. Body positioning, weight on the correct foot, anticipation of the opponent's actions etc.

    He has been shown up many a time in this department because the opponent (mainly forwards) have learnt these things for their own game, and that's caught him off guard. Perhaps ererdevise players never had that (as much).?

    We all thought he was a beast......but in this league you need to be a clever beast.

    Not worried about this guy .. yes he has a lot of learning to do (what CB doesn't at his age), but the potential is obvious.

    Keep learning from Jan & Toby, adapt to the PL, deal with being targeted, he'll be better for it.

    All you have to do is compare him with every CB we have had between King/Woodgate and now (minus Jan/Toby obviously) and see how good he is.

    Very important for us to have him for years before Toby and Verts go.

    Toby is off in a few months, then Sanchez and Foyth will need to step up a level, unless.... wait for it... we buy a superstar!!!! Hee heeeee!!!

    Huge player. Will inevitably suffer with some games, learning to deal with players like Mitrovic who is an absolute animal. Thought he adjusted very well in that game. 22 years old, all these experiences will do him the world of good. Can't be too many 22 year olds who have played in as many top class games as him.

    Foyth was also exceptional against Palace. I have a lot of faith in the both of them. It's one area of recruitment where we have been brilliant.

    Yea crystal ball time, but I think in 2/3 years time a Foyth - Sanchez partnership could be something special.

    We need to see that working out before the end of next season. Accelerated progress necessary. And figure out who's 3rd and 4th CB who I hope will be from the academy.

    Sanchez for captain in 5 years?

    It's almost like our manager knows more about defenders than strikers ;)

    Ottawa, actually.
    Both right-footed. Not sure it'll work out, given that fact - Poch likes his left-footers on the left, when possible.

    I think they could work perfectly together in a back three, though - with a leader in the left-footed CB slot.

    Today was an ideal game for him. Playing against a single rather limited striker who is fast but not lightning fast and strong but not brute strong. His real tests will come in more challenging games.

    Playing against a striker who has bullied him a few times in the past and getting the better of him.

    I don't think there's many stronger forwards in the Prem than Rondon. He'd be in my top five for sure.
