    That's the PEH I remember seeing in his first season here. If he can play like that all the time, he's first-choice. Crazy number of interceptions, some of them high up the pitch too to get a quick counter off.

    Yep, I've said I think he can be upgraded before... and maybe he can... but he was absolutely class tonight. All over the pitch, won all his duels, intercepted a lot, and kept the ball moving relaly nicely.

    He should definitely be part of our first team squad moving forward and it's clear he's one of the leaders of the team. Nice one PEH.

    Was brilliant today. I wonder what made the difference for him.

    For this particular game obviously the red card, penalty, Arsenal doing an implosion. But even so he was very good.

    Perhaps the players are further settling in to Conte's system. A week between most games both for that and to keep fresh has been massive imo.

    I'd like to think so. Our play has been solid and consistent in the last few games. Even with slight changes (Doherty, Romero) we are playing as we would. It's good to see a familiar game plan getting results game in game out.

    True also that the penalty, sending off and timing of all the goals made the game easier for us. Even Sanchez didn't make any mistakes... He even had the time and composure to provid a crucial pass for one of the goals.

    Just wanted to say again that he finished off the season strongly and put in a great shift in the final match.
    With CL football, there won’t be any more throwing U-18s/23s into the deep end so hopefully we get another midfielder who can be rotated with PEH, Bentancur and Skipp so they don’t get run into the ground.

    Definitely agree with this.

    While I think a more creative option for CM such as Eriksen would be useful another player with the defensive ability and work rate like those three would be really useful too. Perhaps we can have both? But if we have to choose one or the other I would be tempted for someone more like those we already have.

    So many games, and phases of games, the majority of the work in midfield is defensive. Real boost to have on the ball quality like all of those three show at times. But most games we'd want to at least have the two starters as defensively very solid very hard working players.

    If we only have three it doesn't take much in terms of rotation or injuries before we start feeling short on options.

    If we can find a player that works really well defensively and on the ball that would obviously be the best. But I would be apprehensive about a more playmaker, light defensively type poster as our only midfield reinforcement.

    Not having to carry Winks?

    For sure. But hes been quite inconsistent without Winks too. Maybe everyone is still adapting to each other as Conte continues to refine the play.

    Does he rotate with Skipp next season? Or is he the first name on the teamsheet for Conte's midfield?
    Good to see him back up his talk with performances this season. Well played PEH!

    A defensive/ball-winning midfielder would be nice, like Sandro or Wanyama, but for whatever reason their livelihoods are short-lived. With five at the back, we have some insurance without a midfield destroyer, especially with Romero fulfilling some of that role from the back. Skipp does seem to be a good balance of midfielder but hopefully he can stay fit for more of the season.
    Personally, I would love someone like Camavinga but I have no idea who else is in a similar mold to him. Kane dropping to the middle can be the creative outlet at times so I agree we need someone to add steel, giving Conte some depth to rotate the team.
