Like Sterling, he’s a good player when he has our best players around him, but today, despite the experience he’s got at the top level (which is a hell of a lot more than Jack Grealish who I’ve criticised in his thread but he contributed a hell of a lot more than Foden!) he just went missing.
He must have played in six/seven times the amount of big games than Grealish has in his career yet played like he’d never played in a big game yesterday.
He’s old enough and experienced enough now to step up when the likes of de Bruyne Gundogan Dias and Rodri aren’t there as a leader of this team. John Terry was captain of Chelsea’s best ever side at 21. There’s no excuses about age here, he just needs to step up and be counted. It’s no good only doing it when certain other players are there.
