I wonder about playing him upfront for those very reasons. He's usually composed in front of goal with a good finish on him, he's not lightning quick, but has more pace than Weghorst, and pressed well at Dortmund and will hold the ball up (and stay fit) better than Martial. He also seems to thrive playing off his teammates, which would suit a more central role.I thought he was ok when he came on was involved in the build up to the second goal played a nice ball out to Bruno.
Hasn't played in 4 months so bound to be a bit rusty.
Interesting to see him played as a number 10 maybe something we see more of in games as in the centre his quick feet and movement could really open teams up. Maybe ETH feels he just doesn't have that raw speed to play out wide.
