In terms of attributes he’s not dissimilar to Daley Blind (I actually thought Blind was better but that’s for another thread...) who played that position quite a bit. Given Lindelof’s shaky start to the season at the back and our lack of options at DM it could be a good fit. He has a good eye for a pass and his biggest weakness is aerial where his duties would decrease (albeit not entirely) in midfield. This could give game time to Jones/Tuanzabe (or Smalling if he’d stuck around) and from what I gather he has played the position before. I know Pereira has also played there but I think that may have just been José being an awkward bastard as Pereira can’t time a tackle for shit.
