If Ake plays well and his partnership with Dias is good and solid, he keeps his place, that's football.Pep wouldn't say it but that doesn't change that he is 4th choice. If we had a big game that we needed to win then Ake wouldn't start.
If the day before the game one of the two centre halves who had been chosen to start got injured then Ake still wouldn't start.
Therefore he would be the 4th choice.
I thought zinny was playing cm for them? If he’s gone there to play LB he’ll get as much game time as he did at city. Seems odd.After Chelsea's beating at the hands of a rampant Arsenal last night, Aké moving to the Chavs may not be over.
Not seen the match, but even Tuchel said they were terrible & the display was worrying. Their new owners will want instant success. The reported £50m we wanted for Aké might now seem cheap considering his commanding displays in pre-season.
Apparently Sterling was the best of their forwards, but from the midway point of the first half, he faded with the rest of the team.
Jesus was the star for Arsenal & Zinchenko played at LB & had a solid game. This will be game-time food for thought for Aké if the Chavs have a change of heart & return for him.
Cracking little player but was never good enough as a starter, a wonderful squad player, the type of player every club needs, I can see him in the same position he was with us in terms of game time even at Arsenal.He’ll be playing LB at best and wouldn’t surprise me if his stay is short in London. He doesn’t have the quality around him at the arse.
