I'm not even saying he's bad. I'm saying there's currently no reason for the ridiculous hype, and I can't think of a standout game he's had.

He cost Arsenal a goal in his first game, and against Chelsea pundits mention " "For about the last 10 minutes or so he seems to have lost a little bit of positional discipline to me, just chasing the ball wherever it goes. He hasn't influenced the match as much as he has in the past, though to be fair he hasn't gone up against a midfield containing Essien, Mikel, and Ramires before. Give him a decent rating, rising to good due to his youth?" Is that all it is? He's looking like he fits in at this level due to his youth. Am I not missing his stand out performances, it's just that he fits into the midfield and because of his age that is impressive. Because whilst it is impressive, it's certainly not one of the best young players in the world form. I'm struggling to see what makes people think he is going to dominate Englands midfield for the next 15 years.
