Andreas Perriera has signed a new 5 year deal with the club.

Do you guys think whether it is to protect his value or does Ole consider him as a crucial squad player.

I think he’s a decent squad player. At times he looked out his depth but I’ve always had high hopes for him. Unfortunately I don't think he will ever hit the heights we hope he will. He needs to play further forward in midfield as he has a great strike on him and lacks the awareness or quick thinking to play deep. He’s a very decent squad player if you’re adding the likes of Bruno plus another if pogba leaves (Saúl) . There’s a lot more players I would rather see out the door first that Andreas (Jones, Rojo, young etc) .

In the pre season last year and in the first 2 EPL games, Perriera played shielding the back 4.
Then after a poor game he was dropped.
Later under Ole, he played as the furthest forward in midfield 3 and the box to box role when Herrera was injured.

Looks like the coaching team is struggling to find his best position.

Yeh you are right TRD. He seems a confidence player and his confidence seemed shot after the Brighton game. When he came on against Liverpool I thought he grew into the game. Hope he kicks on.

I am more happy about Tuanzebe signing a new deal.

I don't think he fits into a "traditional" position. He is an excellent dribbler and is very good at crossing the ball, yet he doesn't have searing pace you'd typically want from a winger.

He is great at finding space and moving off the ball, his passing is top notch and he has a great shot on him. He hasn't got the defensive reading of the game to play at No.6 nor does he have the physicality of a driving No.8. He best suits a No.10 but he frequently likes to drop deep or wide to find space which can often isolate the forwards.

I think he will suit a hybrid sort of role, either as a No.8/ No.10 like Pep plays with Silva and De Bruyne.
Or as a No.10/ wide role that you would find in a 4222 type formation. Which might be where he ends up if Ole does decide to follow through with his earlier coaching ideas.

Happy, you've described a poor man's Mata.
