    Yesterday he was effective, created 4 chances and got an assist - mostly this season he has not been effective in possession - average chance creation of 1 per 90, half that of Bale and Dele and on a similar level to Bergwijn & Lamela. More games like last night and i might change my opinion but until then he's still the hardworking but ineffective player that kills attacks and hampers team play that flatters to decieve because he's busy

    Whilst I think he has been more useful and he’s certainly not a player I want to be overly negative about )my motm yesterday) I think there are two reasons he’s looked better recently:

    1 - by playing centrally there are less blind alleys for him to run into
    2 - by getting fouled a little more , especially yesterday it takes away the chance of him being responsible for an ineffective or lack of pass!

    We probably have him, Lamela and Lo Celso who stand out for their work rate at the detriment of a final ball or big goal return and Dele, Bale and Ndombele who are more decisive with the ball but not in their work rate!

    It’s a disgrace Lloris isn’t in this poll...

    Wouldnt be surprised if Danny Rose was involved too, not like he has got history for speaking his mind per say.

    Why is Doherty not included in the poll?

    I think you have to give players at least a year.

    Unless they are called Joe Hart.

    Why? It’s not like he has come in from an overseas league and needs to adapt to the pace of PL football. In another year’s time he is 30 years old and probably commands no transfer fee at all. Sometimes you have to a realise early that you’ve made a mistake and quickly rectify.

    He was brilliant in his first full season for us. Scored vital goals in big matches. Probably fair to say he’s been inconsistent since then but he’s been excellent recently and absolutely deserves his place ahead of Bale and Alli. They are both better footballers than Moura but neither have consistently shown it for years.

    No qualms with him being in the team atm, like i said he's working hard and full of energy which sets him apart

    Apparently an ITK on SC knows Winks’ cousin and reckons him and Kane can’t stand each other.

    I think that's the key, he's a much better player when getting more central.

    Agreed.

    And that team is Bournemouth.

    I'd agree with that too. He has become increasingy reluctant to take control of his area, and he has never been captain material for me.

    I'm fed up with seeing him standing in the tunnel before big games looking like he's just been told that Hannibal Lecter is babysitting his youngest.

    Jose wouldn't tell him before the game, he might have had a message from MP though.

    He's had purple patches in the past, times when even his decision making has looked better, as it does now.

    Time will tell if he can keep it up now or not, if he can we have a real player on our hands. But a bit early to be saying for sure.

    Right now having players that at least show up consistently mentally is very valuable. It puts down a marker for some of the other lads and forces some of them off the team sheet.

    We have given far to many players far to long before moving on. Historically bentley was the prime one but in this current team Aurier, Sanchez and Sissoko were crap in their first season and the best you could say about them in their 4th season is they can just about do a job as a squad player or one of their fans might say they have improved.

    They are still cack though.

    Thread focus was the players that let Poch down, now letting Mourinho down
