I'm beginning to lean more to he just shouldn't be in the starting line up period (unless we are rotating). I like Winks but I'm not sure he's on our level.I think this is pretty much it.
Unless we are playing a 3 with a holder, he shouldn't be in the starting line up.
Obviously we are seeing he cannot play in a midfield 2.
With 3 midfielders in the lineup, I'm not sure he provides enough going forward. Say we are playing 3 with Dier (or a signing) as the DM. Ndombele should be in our best XI. So that leaves one spot for a pest/work rate CM. That's really what Winks role is/should be but is he better than Lo Celso?
He's a useful squad player but I think he'll see himself eased out of the lineup.
