What do we think? He was always decent but not exceptional when we were introducing him to the PL at right back. He then excelled when we put him at CB, made himself a starter for England but then lost his place to Matip. With Clyne injured it looks like we are trying to make him back up RB rather than starting CB again. Feels strange to me. Given a fresh start to the season I would have Gomez over Matip. Whilst Joel was v good at the end of the season, I think we are forgetting how good Gomez was at the start. I think he has the potential to become the leader of our back line but I'm worried we are making him 3rd choice and risk losing his interest. Thoughts.
