Those runs are fine, as our defensive midfielder drops back into the CB position. I don't think he is defensively inept. It's the lack of cencentration which is the problems. The mental side of things. He's shown a lot of improvement though. And I think he will continue.
Agree with Joel on Luiz. He was much improved under RDM, particularly during our CL run. He definitely has the ability, just needs to work on the mental side of things. There's a lot of potential there. It's easy to forget that he hadn't played for a month leading up to the Champions League final.
Caressing the ball was something I had to do. I lifted my eyes to the heavens and asked for help because if God exists, there's no way he's French.
He's fine defensively but his positioning is terrible. Or was last season at least until the last few months. Playing him in the Mikel role gives you a stronger defender in that role who understands how to play CB when needed to drop back and he's also a stronger threat going forward and has the freedom to make them runs.
