Showed he's relatively useless if we're out of possession honestly, Mata levels of pace. Was slow to a bunch of blocks/tackles. Lost possession on the edge of our box which Arsenal then went and scored from. He honestly looked like a passenger for most of the game and if we had the options on the bench, i think he might have been subbed quite early in the second half.

When we have players like Casemiro controlling the midfield and dictating play, Eriksen has a lot more say in games.

If we can sign another top midfielder in the summer, Eriksen might be even more useful, but we'll see. 

He's been a good signing for us all things considered, but he shouldn't be playing in the big away games. Certainly not in a deeper role anyway, and especially if Casemiro is out.

In both the City and Arsenal games away he's really struggled with the pace of the game and was completely overrun. He's never been a monster physically of course, but with his obvious injury/health issue he now really doesn't have the energy or legs to be be able to compete. He doesn't have the defensive intelligence to make up for it either.

If he played in a 3 with another two players who can cover for him he'd be useful, but certainly not in a 2.

Still time to loan someone.

I think the club should make a cheeky bid for Tielemans before the window closes. Out of contract this summer, doesn't look like he's going to sign a new deal with Leicester. A very good midfielder, potentially on the cheap, who's a similar type player to Eriksen. Always been a fan of his.

Won't happen, but would like to see us do some kind of deal if Eriksen is out for awhile.

Tielemans has been really off his game for awhile now. He still scorea the occasional worldie, but hasn't been at his best since that FA Cup final winning goal.

Yeah, maybe a fresh change is what he needs to rejuvenate his career. He's still got plenty of time on his side anyway. I've just always rated him as a player. Interested to see his next move.

Anyway, looks like we're getting Sabitzer. Very encouraging news.
