We're only talking about individual seasons, and in that season he didn't make any impact on the CL. And the quality of the rest of the side isn't what made him miss a bunch of good chances across two legs against Madrid, one of which was an absolute sitter.
He was our best player in the first leg at the Bernabeu. Created the best chance for Welbeck and had a shot that hit the post. Throughout the night his hold-up play was the only thing that allowed us to attack. The sitter came off a high ball which he had to control and quickly release the shot. He should have finished it but its hardly criminal. And he didn't even miss a bunch of chances. That's hyperbole at best.
