    He can be as good as he wants to be. Massive potential. Perhaps needs a bit of intensity to his game but hes a complete CM.

    Really poor performance. Was invisible mostly. Matteo should have come instead of him.

    While Willock wasn’t particularly impressive in this game, I think his potential is massive. Huge physical ceiling married with the technique you’d expect of an Arsenal academy product. We’ll have to structure our attack better to get the most out of him (and Smith-Rowe) though.

    Should obviously be sent on loan to Huddersfield next season.

    Not our most talented prospect, but has the potential to truly dominate games in his prime if he develops the right way. Future captain material. The growing pains and frustration will pay dividends in the future.

    To be fair, you didn’t state on what level he has potential to dominate games, so perhaps you’re right. But if you’re suggesting Willock dominating a game at PL level, that emoji above is a massive understatement.

    I like Willock but I would be loaning him out to be honest. I just cant get my head around playing him as a 10. He is good at arriving in the box and getting into goal scoring positions as well as driving through midfield, but he is simply better deeper.

    I see him as a Doucoure type. Not the best defensively but able to defend due to physicality. I don't see him on the half 10 as a 10. His first touch isn't good enough. I think he is a box to box 8.

    Exactly what I keep saying is the problem with him. He's just better in a deeper role.

    He can still make devastating runs from behind breaking through the lines

    The way he plays football with a lot of contact requires a bit more strength and that will come in a year or two. Doesn't matter which position he plays because he is always doing same things
