Besic got a starting berth against Liverpool which few would have expected.
He clearly shows signs of being a top class player, but he clearly has a lot to learn about the pace of the Premier League, because he got caught in possession too often, and gave away the ball trying something more expansive when ‘simple’ was the more obvious choice.
But the lad’s got talent, that’s for sure. Will he replace the obviously below-par Barry (against Liverpool at least) or maybe even McCarthy? Or will Roberto persist with all three and forego a bit of creativity in someone like Osman?
