    Would he get constantly skinned like Otamendi against Salah? Doubt it.

    I've nothing against Mangala and hope he does well whenever he plays for us. I don't think yesterday was a test of his ball playing skills though Liverpool were down to 10 men and fairly tired when Mangala was on and they didn't press our back line at all. The time I fear for his ball playing skills is when pressed. Anyone playing football in the premier league can pass competently when not under pressure.

    I think the year away has built up his confidence a lot I just hope the games he plays in and he will play in a few that he shows his skills to the best. I have faith in him to do well this year in the team. Only 26 I feel he has a lot to give to the club and once fully settled in again he could be a major part of the team if we continue with the 3 centre backs this season. I can see him playing in the West Brom league cup game and then a few more games after that. I just think Pep might drop Otamendi to the bench to make him up his game more.
