I think he is more suited to a team that plays more attack than defence. His defensive game is poor but he is good when coming forward with the ball. I think he is played out of position and if used in a more attacking central role he'd do really well

He seems pretty settled here actually but he is a chelsea supporter and he just says he'll review everything when it comes to it

Really?

Our records with and without him are quite interesting.

With RLC P16 W3 D6 L7 Avg 0.94pt/game
w/o RLC P06 W2 D1 L3 Avg 1.16pt/game

He didn't play in the wins over Chelsea, Southampton and draw with Man City.

Since Roy took over, the only defeat that we have had that RLC did not play a part in is the game at Man Utd. He came on at Newcastle and we lost late on.

There is no doubt he is a talented player but is he the right fit for us?

Quality player no doubt. Bit of a luxury player at present though. I like him, but I get the feeling you need to pick him for the right sort of games. He's certainly got a lot to learn still, which is fine, but not sure i'd trust him on a continual basis as his defensive side and work without the ball isn't up to scratch yet.

Think he'd be a great sub from the 75min mark when we're over running teams, not sure Chelsea would appreciate that though. For the games he's played at Chelsea you'd think he'd only have to defend maybe 30% of the time as they've normally got the ball.

I'm sold he's going to be a wonderful player at some stage, not sure he's the perfect fit for us though at present.

Bearing in mind that he played in the first few games and we could have had Ronaldo in the team and still lost and he has missed games after the general improvement in the team, I don't think those stats really show much.

A fantastic talent and full of potential. Going forward hes great, powerful, skilful, composed and can shoot and pass. Hell probably get much better too

Still lacking defensively and its given opposition chances

When he was on the right TFM in particular was 2v1 so many times. When played on the left schlupp is exposed too often. He stops and watches at times rather than tracking the runner. He really needs to improve this side of his game, though it is understandable with his age/experience and I think he already is at times.

To get the best out of him currently he should play centrally in the number 10 mold. However.. wed have to change our proven way of playing to do that and thats building a team around him. Hes not good enough for that yet

At the moment we concede to many chances with him in the side and does he create enough to justify that? For me no. Jimmy creates and scores similar amounts but defensively is fantastic and thats why he starts ahead of RLC for me.

Id love to sign himof course, I expect him to keep developing and be a top top player and certainly seems a likeable lad too

i'd bench him for now. McArthur playing well at the moment. Would be great to bring off the bench if chasing a game. Too much of a liability to start games at the moment for me

But McArthur's best games have been when he is central - we need someone else to play a wide role (Townsend on one side) unless/ until we sign someone else to put up top with Benteke.

He’s certainly got better as the season has gone on - you can see he’s still learning about when to release the ball. Him behind Benteke with Wilf and Townsend on the wings would be great stuff.

However, lack of another striking option has left Roy with little choice but to push Wilf up there with him.

He’s a superb talent who could go on to be sublime. But he isn’t yet as effective as either McCarthur or Luka for us. He could turn out to be a player with real influence. A Figo or a Matthaus type. He’s got strength and range and skill and power. When he adds composure to his game he will be something else. Whether Chelsea will give him the time to develop her he goes back is another thing.

Great player but notbthevfinishrd article. Exactly the type of younger player that we should be adding to the squad along side some seasoned pro's

We took zaha on loan from Utd! I didn't hear people moaning about some of his failing as he had them then! Turned out zaha was a good loan and buy.. Well done SP!

Think he was better earlier in the season. Hes faded recently. Not helped by being played out wide. For home games against bottom half sides (who we expect to sit deep) maybe try him in the advanced central role in a midfield 3? He does go missing when the team is under pressure though which is why I think Hodgson doesnt like him down the middle of the pitch.
