I dont get it at all. He played okay in a five on thursday but he cannot turn defence into attack, nor break up the play in a three.Emery: ''Xhaka is a very important player for us. He has a big commitment and he is improving. I am not asking people to support him but I am sure he is going to achieve the best things if the supporters help him.”
He ain't dropping Xhaka anytime soon.
He leaves Luiz vulnerable. Who i hope is a stop gap for Holding.
I can only think Dick is under pressure from the Board to protect the investment in Xhaka, especially as we cant even offload Mustafi or Ozil.
Once again, Dick says we have to do better defensively so he knows we are weak, but the players are not picking it up.
Its bloody frustrating.
