Anwar El Ghazi

Recommended Posts

Was the most disappointing player for me today (perhaps excluding Kodjia).

Couldn't stay on his feet, couldn't maintain possession and offered little in defense. Needs to up his game a little.

Might be best as an impact sub against tired legs at this level, doesn’t seem to have the raw pace to be too much of a threat against PL full backs

problem is, we only have El Ghazi, Jota and hassan for the wing roles, so you think Jota & Hassan?

This is why most people thought we would be a bit light in this department with just 3 players.

Shame we couldn't have got Benrahma or an alternative (Bowen?, Lolley?)

Wasn’t great, wasn’t poor....first game at this level and we didn’t have the ball in their half much, I think people are being harsh.  Think he’s going to be a good player in this team.  

I think generally people are judging many players from the game based on 1 game, 1st game back at this level, their 1st game at this level, 1st competitive game at this level....all against a team that were at home and were in the champions league final last season.....

Thought he was poor today but like many others just needs to find his PL rhythm

Personally think jack and trez might be the way to go In the wide areas in the long term once Luiz and nakamba bed in. Guilbert and targett overlaps would give jack in particular a lot of room to operate. Essentially resigns Jota and el ghazi to being role players which they mate be more suited too. All depends on Luiz and nakamba mind you

Agree with benrahma, missed a trick there I feel

Had a bit of a stinker really but not through lack of trying and those writing him off at any level are jumping the gun a bit imo. He beat his man a couple of times some good link up play down that left side. But that shot from about 40 yards out that went miles off target just about summed up his day I thought. He's better than that and we all know it.

Powderpuff stuff. He'll look loads better when he's got a capable left back supporting him though.

I thought he did well in the first half but he faded badly after halftime. I think we all need to remember who we were up against today. Pretty much all of their players are better than ours and therefore it was always going to be tough. We did ok considering. AEG and the rest of the lads will be better for the experience

He was average for large parts of last season so not sure why people expect him to step up and be brilliant at a higher level.

I really hope he does well but I’ve not seen enough on a consistent basis to suggest he will.

We needed another winger and today it showed.

Jota should have replaced him and not Trez...

 

Trez was looking much more creative and was actually holding the ball.

 

Bad day at the office for El Ghazi. Onwards and upwards though!

Reminded me of the start of last season. In and out of the game and didn't have a big impact.

Last season it took him a few games to get into the swing of Championship football, it may be the same again for the PL.

It's a huge step up and it will take a bit of time for players like El Ghazi, the quality of the full backs are hugely different.

He showed enough to suggest he’ll be fine at this level. Decision making was a bit off at times. In the first half he made a good move whereby he got in between the rb and cb but was fouled referee gave a free kick for diving against him. One step further and he was clean through shocking decision. The referee was a donkey.

He struggled against Spurs which might mean his level isn't that of a Top 4 side, but he'll likely do well against most teams that aren't Top 4 contenders. This season is about doing enough to stay up and I think we have enough for that, even if some games will be a struggle for some of our players.
