Sambi Lokonga: Sam Be the Man in Midfield?

I love when players get moody on their socials. It's surprising to see considering all the potential playing time there is to be had over the next month.

I hope he's fit and fully recovered from covid. We need him to play at a level beyond all our wildest dreams

I have faith in Lakonga's ability and think he deserved to play the next game after the newcastle performance so I was disappointed. But given how Gabi looks like a transformed player since coming back into the team and what city players have said about Arteta's input in their game I'm gaining some faith that if he does come back he'll be better.
 
Huge drop off from Partey + Xhaka down to Sambi + Patino. Ødegaard got no service today and we were only able to build up along the wings.

An inexperienced lad himself being asked to look after more or less the whole midfield. It would be easy to pile on him but very few players of his age would have fared much better. We badly needed someone with a bit of nous on how to play these physically tough lower league sides in there today.

Elneny is better than him. He is not improving Elneny. Xhaka-Partey is the only midfield that minimum works for Arsenal. Anything below it, it is relegation level and I aint joking.

At least show some character? I've said it in the past, not just based on today, he's too lackadaisical. He strolls around the pitch, plays at one tempo, whether its going forward, or tracking back. Its like he's got no gears, just constantly in a slow jog for 90 minutes. Barely breaks a sweat.

Today was especially embarrassing, he was a coward. Just constantly positioned himself next to a Forrest defender so he couldn't be passed to.

He’s not and never will be Arsenal/PL standard. He’s not bad and can be a back up but he will never be starting quality. This place goes crazy for any young CM who is brought in who shows a shred of physicality/athleticism.

Not judging most people however, considering the options we’ve had to suffer with for a long time it’s understandable.
