Was a canny assist tbf. I can't see him scoring much at all, but he does work hard and it will get a few assists for sure.
Hes already got a few assists.

I know.

Isn’t that 3 or 4 assists now?

If he's starting games and getting through the best part of 90 mins that's a win as far as I'm concerned.

Showed good energy levels unlike Shelvey and Hayden who were both blowing after 45 minutes.

It's almost like we're the only club he's ever wanted to play for so he does his utmost to play.

FPL haven't given him the assist for the goal, seems a bit odd

Better signing than Joelinton tbh.

Well no one really wanted Joelinton at that price other than Ashley.

I’m pleasantly surprised people are saying he looks like he cares. I expected him to never play and absolutely take the p*ss.

I think he's always given 100% tbf. Problem is actually getting on the pitch and lasting 90 mins. That will still probably be the case over the season.

He gave it his all today like he did every time he was on the field for us, fantastic assist and looks a superior striker to Joelinton

Would like to see him start up top with Gayle if not Muto.

Obviously can't do 2 games in 2 days. So wouldn't be surprised if on bench at Man Utd on Boxing Day, starting against Everton at home next Saturday.

Clearly putting in the effort.

I'm as cynical as everyone else with his signing (although not to the extent that I can't see the contribution he's made so far), but I do need to remind myself every now and then, that the only other player I've experienced equal or more joy from seeing score a goal for us was Shearer.

Internal politics aside I'd love to see him have a successful second run with us.

Was critical of keeping him on today. His mentality can't be faulted but his body leaves us limited sometimes. There were so many occasions he simply didn't have the legs to be in the right place when we needed him. However he did what he does best, worked his socks off and it was a superb assist. Worth the money but we need much better in January.

Same. We could leave out a midfielder or a wide player since they aren't involved that much anyway. Match the formation to the way we actually play.

It was definitely a different formation yesterday, and I thought it looked worth sticking with. We used it against Southampton as well last 10 minutes and I thought it worked well there.

Tbf for the money his return is a tad better than some.
