Anyone who followed Mainoo through the youth teams would say that one of his strengths is his play around the edge of the opposition's box.he looks so much more comfortable when he comes deep and we look a better team for it
feck knows why ten hag keeps insisting he pushes forward, he’s not getting on the ball as much and he isn’t suited to it
One-Twos, flick-ons, neat touches and final passes.
I think the manager has seen this ability on the training pitch and is now trying to see if the player can replicate it in PL matches....
Unfortunately there weren't many opportunities for Mainoo yesterday because we were forced back and played a quite deep defensive line for a large part of the game.
