2019/20 Gylfi Sigurdsson

Goals.

He scored 14 of them last season.

He sadly has been a shocking waste of space so far this season and I cant see how he gets any better.
This is true. You can debate whether him being on the pitch hurt the team in the way we played but he did contribute last year. This time around has just been abysmal.

To keep playing him in such an important position shows misplaced loyalty on Silva's part. If he wants him on the pitch so badly put him as an inside left where he's out the way and doesn't cripple the team.

He's actually been more of a striker for us than anything else. If he scores he's worth having. If not he offers nothing. People ask to play 4-4-2 but essentially that's what we have been for the last two years. Sigurdsson is no midfielder.

Spot on. His contribution last year is a completely different debate that we should set aside for another time, and the fans should be focusing on this season alone.

This year, Gylfi has been close to dreadful: lethargic; a passenger in most games; offering little creative play, which is undoubtedly part of his remit.

Unfortunately, I think the loss of Bernard and Gomes just compounds how abject his performances have been because we rely on him more and more.

Personally, he was the worst performance yesterday and that isn't particularly easy when you're competing against Morgan, Theo and others.

I was surprised he started ahead of Iwobi, seeing him as captain hurt my eyes. Him and tosun starting cost us this game.
