Some dodgy moments but has re-found his mojo in attack. Pace has returned, confidence has returned, good crossing has returned. Don't recall him once trying that hit and hope cross we've come to expect from him.
I think he's looked more like the old Valencia recently. An ability to cross has returned, very good cross in first half to Young for the chance that O'Shea nearly put in his own net. I think Van Gaal said recently they'd been working on his crossing. Think it's mostly to do with confidence though, both he and in particular Young have looked so much more confident in taking players on recently. Agree about him defensively. Also agree that he's probably the better bet as a squad player going forward, on ability I prefer Rafael and think he can improve under Van Gaal but seems unlikely after recent reports.
His delivery wasn't the best. His workrate (creating space for others) and link play is absolutely fine, but he is indecisive when crossing. He would be a very good full back if his crossing was better.
Highlighted the need for a new RB today. Another who is a squad player at best. Attacking wise he looked a threat. Defensively an absolute nightmare. Looked a winger playing at RB again. Has improved in the role this season but not at it today.
