The really worrying thing is Dele. He looks shot of connfidence. Last season he would have had at least two from that game. I think the hype is getting to him. Time for Poch to do his magic again.

I do wonder if trying to 'make' Wembley 'home', while perfectly understandable, is a worse option than the team seeing it as effectively another (slightly more familiar) away venue.... Either way, getting used to new surroundings will be essential to our first season back at the re-orientated and enlarged WHL...

Scored against Newcastle, Burnley, Barnsley.
Assisted 2 against Wet Sham and probably others this season

I didn't say he was shit, but his drop in form is plain to see. Especially the fact that the ball simply doesn't stick to his foot as it used to and that is an indication of lower confidence. He needs 2-3 touches where he used to need one.
I know he is still VERY YOUNG, and I'm not hitting the panic button, but maybe it's time to give him a rest a bit.
Of course I may be wrong. Indeed I hope I am.

If 3 goals and at least 2 assists in 8 games is poor form for all to see, you must watch a team of Messi's when you're not watching Spurs.

I think his "dip in form" is little more than headlines for red tops. Sadly they'll keep on unless he scores every game.

I think most players and managers would tend to try to play through the poor form in order to get confidence and form back. He's unlikely to do that if he is on the bench. So unless he physically/mentally needs a rest I can't see it happening.

He has been getting rests from the champions league anyway due to suspension, and may get one from England too if FIFA ban him for the 'finger' incident.
