He’s done a decent job as part of a well drilled defensive unit. Doesn’t mean he will cope when Mbappe is running at him!

Lethal at set pieces was solid at West Brom, Watford and now for West Ham, better than Maguire

Haha no mate. The lad was on the scrap heap. Not sure how many offers he would of had but he certainly did well to stay in the prem. Sometimes you just have to say it’s a perfect fit. Moyes has brought player in to play his system. Lingard the same.
