Makes his debut on the 55th minute vs Arsenal coming on for Rojo at left back.

Does he play in defense for the youth team? I tend to believe he is wasted their and he is better suited to play as a holding midfielder.
He's playing at the back for the U21s but I think most beleive his long term future is in midifeld.

Switched with Blind briefly before our 3rd and picked Giroud up straight away and matched his size. Good lad.

Yea, I do not understand why he is playing in the defense for the u21s..
They'll often do that to 'teach' them different aspects of the game. That's what he does so well those runs.

Looks like an absolute physical monster. Bullied Iwobi anytime he got close.

Good solid debut (Ignoring that poor backward pass). I look forward to this lad having a solid career.

To develop him. You learn a lot by playing in a different position.

Yea, I understand that aswell. I just assumed that they are developing him into a Centerback rather than a midfielder.

Most of his early chances, like today, will likely come at fullback as well so it is good that he is getting experience playing there for the u21s.

Told you he's awesome at tackling. Well anyone who watches him play for the youth team would say that. It's so obvious his tackling ability is amazing.

I rate this kid highly. If the injuries don't improve, he should play at CB in the next game and push Blind to the left.

And so fast as well. He's like a more likeable and defensive version of Yaya.

He has a huge advantage over Riley at LB with his physicality.. His versatility should mean we might see more of him at either CB or RB if needed

Looks like a bit of a tank physically. Big, fast, strong, and seemed good on the ball (but for that pass). Debuts for everyone!

Like the cut of his jib, looks comfortable on the ball and is physically excellent. Looks to have all the makings of an excellent B2B midfielder, hope we get to see more of him.

I think it was the first time he played LB, he usually plays DM or CB and ocassionally RB.

For me he is the biggest prospect from this bunch of kids that got debuts lately, he's one of those players that every time you see him play you think he will make it.
