Just a minor update. I am watching the replay, paying greater attention to details. Ndombele has defensive issues! I noticed that when watching his games from Lyon, and some of those mistakes are noticeable now. He has issues with pressing, he's regularly a step or two behind the player that he presses. In one situation, his positioning and awereness + communication were very questionable.
Really late to press Taylor here
He was player closest to Trezeguet here. He didn't communicate with any of teammates to pay attention, he just walked away, and finally, that's a pretty bad position. He did fuck all, marked nobody, didn't cut passing lanes.
He'll really need to improve his defending.
Also, the Egyptian is one to watch. His off the ball movement seems spectacularly good.
