    If he was more confident using his left foot, think we would be in more dangerous areas quicker. He would rather do an outside of the foot right than use his left, even though hes put in some brilliant crosses and scored a peach with his left. Bizarre.

    He played one pass today with the outside of his foot between two defenders to Lingard I think and it was so unlike Valencia. It was a clever pass Something Valencia Just doesn’t normally do. Hopefully there is more to come like that. Overall thought he was decent today.

    I find it a bit mad that people aren't happy with Valencia at RB.

    He's probably the last position (after Goalkeeper) that I worry about.

    He has played better now. By using his left foot now opponents are not sure of what he is going to do. They no longer show him the inside as they now know he can hit with his left foot too.

    Has he delivered a single cross all game or made a run on the right ?

    He put in the cross for our disallowed goal.

    They can't retrospectively ban him for that because the referee seen it and acted.

    It feels like he's got an invisible wall in front of him most of the time, even he looked frustrated by the end.

    Some might disagree but I thought he was lucky not to be sent off for that high boot, it looked real nasty. Defensively he was ok today I guess but going forward apparently him and Young only put three crosses in between them.

    We shouldn't press any alarm bells on him playing at right back, on the whole he does a good job there, although he can look a bit suspect against some of the bigger sides.

    I think he'll be fine for us there for one more season possibly. When Fosu Mensah is back from his loan I do fancy him to put him under some pressure for that right back spot, his performances there for Palace have been very good.
