    I could walk 10 km in an hour and a half at 4 mph.

    This lad is so fudging good. Was brilliant today particularly first half when we were struggling. His movement and distribution is excellent. By a country mile, the best midfielder we’ve had since Dembele. Love watching him play.

    He's so good and so much of what we needed. A passing capable CM and press resistant. Having to eat h the likes of Sissoko in midfield had many forget what a quality CM actually looks like. Think I love him already.

    What an amazing player. So calm and smooth and intelligent too - pure joy to watch.

    Bless you both for going first. I love this man, he has guile, grace, panache, he sees passes that in a mear mortal don't exist, he even manages to make hard crunching tackles look sexy, what a baller!! We need a song.

    He was utterly brilliant yesterday. I can't believe we've made two January signings that have actually hit the ground running. Long may it continue.

    Very good again.

    Stood out more in the first half when we struggled to break them down. Great to have another player that plays well and raises our game when we're not at our best rather than depending on all other cogs on the machine functioning to play well.

    Becoming a big fan of him.

    As others have said he is a CM player we have lacked for a long time, he is a talker as well which is important in the M/F.

    He is an odd player
    He has a bit of everything
    He also plays so composed
    I saw him play in Italy and he was very “functional” but here he has some flair which really suits us and him
    What’s been key is he has got up to the speed of the league very quickly which we all know is something some players under some managers can’t do

    The bit I can’t understand is that I look at this lad and he looks a proper player. Tough, bit of a brickhouse, great on the ball, great movement.

    Why on earth don’t Juve fans rate him and why did they sell him? Everything I’ve seen from him suggests he should have ripped it up in Serie A. Can’t get my head around it.

    He won 3 league titles there and he played every week
    They are a club that are caught in a rut so blame certain players, especially when they leave
    He isn’t a big name either dont forget
    He is better than McKiney and I like him, but Rodrigo is just better at everything so far
    He is miles better than Rabiot who is gash
    LocatelIi ain’t a cM in the same mould but is a very good player so their whole team is just poorly balanced

    What a classy player. Plays at his own pace thanks to his awareness, intelligence and ability to pass through the lines.
    Very impressed with what I've seen

    Didn't see him towards the end of his time at Juve, but saw him some earlier when he looked very good.

    Reportedly they tried playing him as the deepest player in a playmaker role, asking him to be Pirlo-esque player. Our style of play and the role he has here now suits him a lot better.

    The lad from Brighton should be Bentancur’s competition Mwepu.

    Was also watching the game today, what a great contribution today for Brighton. We should sign him just for that tbh.

    Because under Allegri he was played in a system/position/role that did not suit him and bring out the best of him. Same story with Kulusevski.

    He has been very good for them in the games he has played but he has been injured for a while. They are a better team when he starts.
