    Was looking for a thread on him and didn't see one.

    Am I the only one that would like to see Tosin start alongside Stones against Leicester? My only concern would be that Mangala is probably faster to deal with Vardy but if Tosin is to come good we've got to play him and with Nico suspended, Vinny likely still out, I'd like to see him start this one. We know Mangala doesn't have a future at the club, let's find out if Tosin really does.

    i thought he looked decent tonight. made some good passes and defended well in the second half. looks very comfortable on the ball. its difficult when its in a make shift back four though.

    he needs a loan imo, as not playing for weeks sometimes months isn't helping him. as he became less nervous he looked miles better.

    Thought he played much better once we went to a back four. Got some pace on him as well.

    His second half performance seemed impressive. Good news in the sense that mostly we control the play which we of course did after 0-2.

    Looked to struggle beside Danilo who did him no favours in the first half but I could see him getting more comfortable and assured in defending and possession of the ball as the game went on, in the last half an hour he started to look very decent.

    Thought he shit himself after that terrible air kick in the box in the first half and just started running away from the ball. Only playing games will stop those nerves, but honestly he looks miles away from premier league football.

    I thought I saw glimpses of why Pep seems to rate him so much tonight.

    Still a long way to go before he could be considered a genuine option but that was a good game for him in that Shakhtar are a very good side, had a varied attack and he kept playing how our CBs do (splitting wide, pressing high, looking for forward passes) even after making some mistakes.
