    I'll have whatever Stephens and Propper are having

    Davy is biting into tackles, and showing a range of tricks and skills. Dale is passing the ball forward at almost every opportunity, playing a range of worldly passes. Where has this been?!!

    Thats two awesome games now, Arsenal and Everton. I mean we always knew they were good, and if you didn't like one you were usually a fan of the other, but we kind of accepted each was limited - but are they now each determined to become a complete midfielder?

    Next stop : GOALS!!!

      Could be down to coaching maybe ?

      Great to see anyway.

      Prefer Bissouma to Stephens. He wasn't great today. You have Stephens tinted glasses because you've copped some stick for defending him on here recently. Weakest link IMO.

      would say its down to ..... more freedom to roam forward as he is no longer playing the DM role side by side with Stephens but playing slightly left and forward as Stephens holds

      def see him getting more forward in last 3 games than he probably has in the previous 17 games this season

      Yeah, Propper has been wonderful since he was paired with Stephens again, such a massive improvement. Last two games best I've seen him play.

      You really didn't think he played well? Show me defensive midfielders that win every challenge and I'll show you premier league and world cup winners. Couple of mistakes, sure, because he's EVERYWHERE. And today he was playing sweeping pass after sweeping pass, just like he was against Arsenal, and yet I'm sure we'll get someone on here slating him for playing nothing but 'backwards and sideways passes'

      The Stephens detractors (“Championship quality at best”) have gone to ground.

      Yet another win with DS at the heart of it.
