His confidence looks shot this season weirdly. He's not pulling out those incredible performances that he was managing at the back end of last season. He did one delicious pass in the first half but it got intercepted. I'd say rest him for Nuno on Friday but that's a big gamble as well.What with him nowadays why he not crossing or trying to get forward more? He just passing backwards look like he seriously lack confidence
he beat them most of the time being the fastest player in the squad, it does look like there's an order on him to stop doing it because we seen hardly any of that this seasonTierney used to get the ball and immediately go 1v1 against the fullback but that is being coached out of him. As with our other players I can only judge him when he has an actual manager at the helm
His reputation within the media is what winds me up about him. Even Don Goodman was saying what an amazing player he is when he’s not really justified that tag at all yet.The Palace goals came down his side. When he's high up the pitch, he can't seem to get back. He doesn't go 1v1. He moves forward, stops and cuts back killing any momentum more than ESR. He left Martinelli unsupported and when he did try a 1/2,he hit the bar. Playing as he is makes him a real problem atm but his poor game(s), seem to go unnoticed.
