I think Brooks and Fraser are the modern day Young and Valencia.
He better undistract himself or he mightn’t get the move he wants. He’ll need to prove he isn’t a one season wonder
It is good so no team will park the bus against us, and we are only aiming at the 4th place trophy anyway. Not sure if we are still in for Fraser though after we bought Pepe, and Willock, Nelson, Martinelli, Saka all need minutes.
He's been steadily improve since his PL debut 3 years ago. Last year was a breakout year and the first year he played in all league matches. He can play on the right and left of midfield.
This year, it looks like Solanke is playing up front with Callum Wilson, but hasn't done anything of note such as 0 goals and assists...with King the wide forward or attacker with Harry Wilson. Not sure if Howe has tried Fraser and Wilson wide with Callum Wilson and King up front similar to last year.
It's interesting because coming off the bench, Fraser has come on around the hour mark and come on for Harry Wilson twice and Solanke once.
His best skill is getting wide and putting crosses in for a striker and like James he's bit better out left, so he doesn't really suit us necessarily, but we have money and are a big club and he could back himself to start here as opposed to some of the other top 6 so it's not inconceivable.
He'd be a decent signing for Chelsea backing up Hudson-Odoi and Pulisic on the wings if they lose Willian and maybe Pedro stays for one more year. Abraham is a good fit as a 9 for him.
Basically sort of an Ashley Young type in that his crossing ability, versatility and competitiveness make him a useful signing for a big team but you want him to be your 3rd winger and the right striker to benefit from what he brings (assists) since he's not going to score much or come inside and help you win the midfield battle or playmake.
King has done quite well as a left-winger, if Fraser leaves I could see them moving Brooks into the 10 role and benching Solanke, who's been kinda quiet while starting.
