Is he a senior defender though?Bailly considering he is supposed to be the senior defender last night was terrible for me. Poor in possession too.
Sure he's 27 and senior in age but in football terms he's actually still pretty inexperienced. He's only played about 160-170 career matches because of all his injuries. For comparison Greenwood at 19 has already played over 100 games.
Maguire and Lindeof at similar ages have 440 and 380 career games respectively, even Jones has played 260+ games. So in terms of experience and development Eric's probably only played the equivalent games of the average 21--23 year old defender and it shows in his play.
