The more I think about it the more I think Donny is the answer to our midfield conundrum. Fred and Mctominay are our legs midfielders so the perfect foil for that is a technical Carrick type. Donny/Matic is too immobile. McFred isn't progressive enough. Donny/Fred and Matic/Mctominay is just right.Yeah, pretty sure we're talking about the same one.
Granted, he and Pogba did well at the back end of last season, the two of them were constantly overrun by teams at the start of the season which caused Ole to change the midfield pairing.
Our defence and performances this season improved when McT and Fred were introduced.
The games that Matic has started this season have been:
Got embarrassed against Spurs, and apart from Soton, who have been really good this season, we should be winning those games anyway.
He hardly ever plays in the tougher fixtures now because Ole trusts McT and Fred in the big games.
