    Not worried about this guy at all. Has skills which are extremely rare, expect the World Class moniker to be thrown around by next season.

    When is he going to get fit and actually move like a fudging athlete? He hasn't looked fully fit once wearing a Tottenham shirt and his slack figure and lumbering movement off the ball scare me, big time.

    That’s how he ran at Lyon

    It's a big concern. He struggled with his weight there and I hope it's something he can shake off.

    Just think that’s his running style
    A bigger issue is the fact that he seems to get hurt with any contact on him

    It's his running style, he will always look slightly awkward/unfit. The main issue is that he's far too reactive off the ball, he doesn't position himself very well or close down the space.

    Without the ball he is not switched on to the game at all. Compared to say, Winks, whose 400% interested in what's going on at all times.

    Said it before but i will say it again, he has got to get used to playing in a much faster/physical game then he has been used too. It will come.

    How was he Man if the Match against Emirates Marketing Project, when he played for Lyon,? but needs to grow to the pace of the Premier League?

    A one off game against the pace of English football is not the same as having to do it on a regular basis. I think some are forgetting he is only 22 and will get better.

    Also playing in a confident well balanced side, unlike what has happened here this season. He came to us sadly I think without a clear plan of how he was intended to be used or at least an idea of what the CM groupings would look like.

    With the coach who bought him in now gone it's going to take some time before he's both up to speed and fits into whatever Mou wants to do.

    I'm concerned that I'm not fully convinced Mou would have signed him if given the choice for this squad, but we will see as Mou is if anything a pragmatist and hopefully he is able to work a system that gets the best from Ndombele because he without doubt a superior player to the rest of the CMs (not including Lo Celso).

    He also was vs Barca
    But he was settled in the team in a very different set of circumstances

    Mourinho ragging on his condition in the presser... Big, big concern.

    Probably not unfair though. He's definitely not in tip top shape

    After nearly 60 years of tracking down to the Lane you have to have hope.
