Did really well when he came on. He brought some much needed energy to the midfield, and the front 3 improved drastically when he started looking to link up with them.

Play him in midfield every time please.

he looks much more comfortable and productive when he is on the right of a midfield 3, instead of on the left of a front 3.  The midfield position allows him to drive forwards with the ball and get into shooting positions.  Always looks ineffective when he plays in the Mane position

When Henderson is not playing, we need Ox’s energy to replace him! A Keita, Fab, Win midfield is very good technically but lacks a bit of energy to drive the team forward. Ox speed up the game with his running and carrying the ball forward, opening up more spaces for the front 3!

His long passing and crossing is brilliant.

Changed the game.

Keita couldn’t get into it for whatever reason.

No, jazz. You fear jazz. You fear the lack of rules, the lack of boundaries. Oh look, it's a fence. But, no, it's soft.

I'd imagine he was pissed at not starting yesterday.  And you can see where he's coming from.

The most goals outside of the front 3.

I was reading an interview of his yesterday and he was saying how happy he was he had started so many games in a row lately, probably the biggest number in his career and then the lineup dropped  ;D


He was exactly was needed yesterday. Really good contribution.

We have to be careful with him and after getting his knee jarred against AM the boss was never going to start him last night.

He's amazing as an 8 when the game's more stretched - as is Hendo, for that matter. Interesting post from Yorky in the Keita thread saying the latter excels when there's no space, which I think Oxlade (and indeed Hendo) sometimes struggle with a little as 8s.

He certainly suited the game-state when he came on because he was excellent, really driving at West Ham and always looking to be positive on the ball.

I agree. When there is space for him to drive, and when the game is end to end, it suits him perfectly. he of course can score long rangers, but imo keita against parked buses is a better option as he progresses the ball into the box very well and links up well
