He must be the most likely to get on, provided we get a decent advantage in the game.
Yeah i'm just speculating really, i'd be really surprised if Sancho is involved, maybe Diaz will sneak in though.
Just noticed the EDS play Everton on Friday, so that could be the reason.
Also it was the PL Cup, which has been the tournament Davies has put in a B team all season (which is one of the reasons they're probably getting knocked out).
He seems to bounce off tackles and just gets up and carries on, yep, far more hard working than Gio without doubt.
Brahim Díaz vs EVERTON U23
I have to admit, it is so rare at the age of 17 to play like the boy does... He has some Silva-esque attributes. He is never in hurry even with 3-4 player 2-3 meters away from him, always moves the ball to the side where it's impossible to reach it for defending player and not foul him (just like Silva does, and only Silva does in our team right now). Always waiting for others to move into position and put some killer balls.
From our first team, only Merlin can play like that (and Nasri could). He is so much more elegant in his play than KdB/Sane/Raz. Early days ofc, but I think, when he starts maturing, he will stop putting himself into unnecessery dribbles, and he will realise that he has not got the speed of wingers, and 4 out of 5 times when he goes past 4 players he will lose the ball, even with his fantastic technique, he will become the player we would love him to be. I always tought of him being kind of Aguero/Suarez kind of player, but I can now see him as Silva with more flair. He know where the goal is, and is so deadly when he's keeping possesion around 5 players waiting for others to move, puting them 1 on 1 with keeper. I can see that not so long before he always wanted to put Messi-like dribbles and often losed it, because he has not got the pace (maybe he will develop it a bit but I can not see it being his asset), but now he is developing into creator mould - and I love it, becasue it's where he will make name for himself.
Skills wise he is better than most of our first team, he needs to mature, stop playing naive and stupid as he sometimes does, and bulk up a little and in 1-2 years time he will be ready, and I hope that given few chances here and there he will give Pep no choice but to start giving him more minutes.
We have a gem here, and I really mean it :)
There is something else in Brahim that isn't about football skills and can't really be taught. It's about attitude and heart and from what I have seen Brahim has a big heart and a great attitude. He has a never say die approach to the game so no matter if he gets clattered or something doesn't come off he still keeps going.If he loses the ball it's not head down it's working hard to try and win it back.
I also like to see him coming along to game (18's ) when he isn't playing to suppoty yeam mayes. He wasn't at Liverpool to watch the 18's play as he will probably have been doing warm down stuff after the game the night before. His father was at Liverpool though supporting the boys and it was quality to see him with an arm round Phil Foden after the game consoling him.
Brahim Díaz vs Stoke City
Pep should use young players for the FA & Carling Cups next year.
I want them to play full games, not only coming in the last few minutes only.
