Only because Son was late coming back from the Olympics. Son replaced him in the PL from Stoke onwards and Lamela only got a look in again because of Kane's injury. The team was better without him. How anyone could dispute that is beyond me. Walker and Trippier were better players without him, they must have loathed seeing his name on the team sheet - he left it their sole responsibility to provide width on the right, whereas players like Son and Eriksen are able to work in tandem with full backs, with them providing width sometimes. I really hope we can sort something out this transfer window, a loan to buy maybe. I'd take 10 with add one, given he hasn't played for a year, won't ever be given a new contract, with this one having either one or two years left, no one seems quite sure.He was in the starting lineup when he got injured. Pure fantasy..
