    Not me. It’s kind of a trick for swapping anyone because Nico has 19 months working under pep. This umtiti link is very interesting though....

    Slowly becoming one of my favorite players, what a turnaround.

    Puyol was exactly the comparison I was thinking of.
    Similar size, similar never say die attitude, miles better airly than their height suggests they should be. Not the fastest, Otters is a better passer than I remember Puyol as.

    I like him. He's 'nails'.
    Pep appears to have calmed his over committed tackling.
    He brings the ball out effectively, although not as classy looking as Stones, a better defender

    You're being ironic, I take it. His usual excellent self tonight. One of the best footballers in the EPL, as he was in La Liga. Lucky to have him, and a big part of why we're so good this year.

    I'm a huge fan of Ota but thought he was a little rash at times today and went to ground more than of late

    He’s been a bit rash for a few games now. He didn’t really do that much wrong today, but I have noticed his excellent form has dipped a bit.

    Playing next to Danilo didn't help. Was left mopping up a lot of space and he is all about the tight physical defending because he does not have the pace to drop off.

    Our defence has been poor in general since Stones' has come back with last season's form and Delph has been injured.

    Need to start being much more dominant at the back.
