He isn't suited to this system at all and it's showing. The way he is being asked to play is very similar to how he was asked to play in the diamond ie. The legs and pivot for the only wide outlet on that side of the pitch. His form was transformed in the 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 last season as he only had the middle of the pitch to think about.
Anything more than that and he struggles, and eventually gives up.
The whole reason he's missed 3 one v one's in 3 games is exactly because he's playing with 2 other midfielders.
Interceptions - 7th in the squad with 0.8 (Souttar top as you'd expect and then Powell!?!?!)
Tackles - 7th - 1 per game but only 4 with more than 1 and loads on 1.
Pass completion - 10th - 77.6%
Danny Batth 3rd
Harry is looking excellent isnt he.
Thats what i find most frustrating about not having Powell as a no10, he is so far removed from a luxury player
Re Powell, I get the criticism about his passing this season and the back end of last tbh and I will join with that but the stuff about him not working, not trying is just plain weird. I wish he was a luxury tbh because then he'd be doing the things I want actually to see from him!
