Interesting on MNF that Rob Green says he has the same saving technique as Mignloet as he keeps his hands behind his back before shots arrive, which can leave him slow to react, as is against the standard keeping technique.

I didn't see this, but one other thing that makes me nervous about him is during free-kicks.

I don't know if there's a reason behind it or it's just poor/inexperienced goalkeeping, but at every free kick he seems to pick his side and stand so close to that post, leaving a huge space at the other side - even when the free-kick is in a central position.

I don't think I've ever seen a goalkeeper stand so close to a post before.  I think he'll probably end up getting caught out at one point.

He's quite cocky I think - I kind of like it but it does mean he has his flaws which may mean he's not suitable long term - but I do think he's at least as good as DDG now overall (if not better) so we should let him have this run and re-assess closer to the summer

He helps the defence so much better than DDG with his coming off the line and communication. He really enabled Maguire and Lindeloff to push up, as did McTomminay who would drop as a 3rd CB.

There are still question marks over his 'saving' though. Even against City, he parried a few times into dangerous areas which was never capitalised on. DDG has done the same, been less fortunate and been jumped on for being shit a few times.

Atm the spot is his to lose regardless.

Poor today. He didn't really have that much to do, but two rushes of blood to the head racing out to high balls twice (particularly the second, when things were under control) could have cost us, but he got away with them.

Could he also have come out to deal with the corner for the goal? That one might be harsh, but the ball wasn't that far out.

Agree with both - seemed a bit like ddg after initially being over eager - appreciate he's a young GK and they do make mistakes (much like DDG when coming through) - but a couple more of those between now and summer and we'll be GK shopping  - Hopefully will bounce back next week
