His link up with Foden has been very good at times. Would be good to see them get a run of games together there if Phil can stay fit for a while.Weirdly now a better left back than right back. Top class today. we're so unfortunate he and Sane didn't overlap, pair him with a left footer with electric pace on that left side and we would have a killer combination. Grealish doesn't have the movement and sterling can't use his left to benefit from Cancelo's brilliance.
In my mind he exemplifies possibly Pep’s most innovative use of a player. And that’s from a king of innovators.
He's a great example to use when people accuse Pep of being a chequebook manager and not improving players. He finds incredible solutions to problems using the players at his disposal. People don't seem to understand the amount of coaching it must have taken to get Delph and Zinchenko to be title-winning left-backs, or for Walker to become an inverted full-back spending half his time in central midfield. It's crazy, crazy shit that we all just accept as normal
Pep's currently on course to win the league without a traditional left-back or striker. AGAIN.
It was ridiculous. You could see that from the high camera angle that the pass was on, but it's the kind of pass most wouldn't even see on the pitch, not to mention executing it with perfection.The weight of that first-time pass for De Bruyne's goal to take Kanté completely out of the equation was just superb
