Zinchenko and Jesus doing the job for Arteta and Ode as the new AFC captain?
Zinchenko and Jesus doing the job for Arteta and Ode as the new AFC captain?- 7 things we are learning so far during the tour:
- Turner will definitely not be a threat to Ramsdale’s nr. 1 spot unless Ramsdale’s level drops immensely
- Saliba is going to push hard to be in the starting line-up
- Jesus seems to adapt well to the team and the team to him
- Martinelli is looking sharp
- Zinchenko had a good 45 mins
- Partey-Xhaka to still be our central midfield double-pivot
- Odegaard to be named as our captain?
So the need to trim the squad is still there and the need to get a reliable back-up option to Martinelli is still there too. As mentioned, I d go for Barnes or Kostic. I am not sure the club is looking to buy a steelier midfielder, unfortunately…
COYG! Only a pre-season game but always nice to beat Chelsea
