    Laporte was doing that yesterday too. Real waste of money - both of them actually.

    Sell them both, I say, and get in some proper defenders like Phil Jones and Johnny Evans.

    At least Phil can head the ball on the ground and crawl to get there if required. Plus he has some shot on him from in front of his own goal.

    And Evans is just feckin.

    Stones is very erratic - prone to inexplicable, bonehead defensive errors. For a while, he cut that out of his game - or was it just random chance - a lucky, good run-of-form?

    Who knows?

    I hope Stones can regain his form - but if he doesn't, we finally have some depth at CB to cover (assuming Kompany can stay semi-free of injury).

    Not really a big miss going off recent form tbh.

    Any updates on his injury? I want to see how he develops a partnership with Laporte. They are our future centre back pairing.

    You can find an update from Pep in his Burnley post-match press conference. I found

    He returned with a problem with his knee, and Pep decided that with Kompany and Laporte fit he would give Stone time to let it settle down.
