Gomes is still an unknown quantity, pre season friendlies mean very little, I mean people bring Jesse and Mata into the equation and he played on the left during the pre-season, so his rival would be James and Rashford. Even Jones had an exceptional pre-season, but no one brings that up.Without meaning to interupt your debate, Lingard is on a higher level but only because he has more experience. Lingard is a average player, he has hit his peak and does not fit in with this team. I would disagree that Gomes is not ready from what i saw in pre season. The kid is majorly talented and if you have ability you should be tried especially given what we have is not working and is terrible. I think Ole knows he is ready but is waiting for the league cup and europa league to unleash him.
I'm pretty sure Ole has already made his comments on Gomes and they were very positive about his potential. I don't know why people are getting their pants in a twist over him. He'll play and prove himself.
