He’s a bit of a passanger, isn’t he?
Offensive game of course can only partly be held against him, he’s not an AM. However defensive/workrate-wise he is really lacking, today and also in his first game.

Positioning was bad when it came to defending but not really his fault. Pioli took a gamble and it didn't work.

Don't think we can put too much blame on him. Only been with the squad a few days and won't fully integrate with the "system" as we would want. That, and he played in AM. It was the whole approach of a more defensive game after our strong first 5-10 minutes that let Atalanta just run at us and lose control that was the issue. In turn, Meite then looked poor as he was unable to do much about it.

Tracking back is not rocket science, he doesn't have a good defensive work rate and even if you don't move perfectly in defense at least trying does something. I mean Hakan is also not a stellar defender but he always tries his best.
Even in his first game when played as a CDM he was shite in that respect, jogging back while a Kessie (who started the game) was doing a sprint to help out in defense.

From a DM, even when new to the team, you should be able to expect more. So far he suffers from the same lack of defensive cohesiveness that Krunic shows and which makes him undesirable for the double pivot.

That he is not an AM is not his fault, just don't repeat this experiment.

For midfielders, tracking is much harder than you think. I'd actually say it is one of the most difficult task. For a CAM its even harder. For wingers, it is easy because you just have to follow the touchline.

Damn finding it hard in seeing much hope in this guy, he’s got far too many gaps and dumb moments in his game

Would make sense why he’s impressed at first in Italy (physique, fast, good in air and can dribble) but he’s just too much of a passenger in every sense

Can't blame him for the freekick. Lautaro literally diving:

Pioli: "Can Tomori stop Lukaku? He is doing well, he has different characteristics from the others. But for technical and physical characteristics, Tomori is better at playing against Lautaro or Sanchez, he's fast but not that powerful to counter such attackers. He is intelligent, I'm happy with his performances.


positive: leao, duarte, ibra, gabbia, hauge, donna?, krunic, rebic, hakan, theo?

He lost the ball just seconds before and then Lautaro dived. A bad game allaround from him. Even the assist was more of a fluke and Ibra being Ibra.

He also assisted Lautaro on his 1 vs 1. He was abysmal.

Doesn't look good thus far, seems nervous and hesitant. But give him time, he's been given too much responsibility in a short time. Thrown right in the fire.

I'll still allow him time to prove himself. I'm sure this careless approach with the ball is manageable under Pioli.

He seem to have some things going for him with the ball on feet, his movement, specially runs upfield and so on. I'm still not sure what he is defensively.

I just hope he gets over those clumsy tackles and lapses with the ball on feet. If that's a feature of his game he will not last here.

Work rate is still atrocious, positioning luckily improved.

Also someone probably had a talk with him and told him that he should cut the clowning a bit.

So far a clear send back.

Let this player time. It must be so hard to play in a team without preparation.
