Alaba as LB vs Espanyol

Matt Wiltse wrote a nice piece about Alaba’s role in the game vs Espanyol. It is worth checking it out to see how Alaba, our LB vs Espanyol, was found in several different positions during game. As Matt put it, “Alaba has comfort in any space — on the touchline, back to goal, building out from the back facing the whole of the pitch, or receiving in clogged central channels”. Matt shows that Alaba’s versatility can really be a new asset to us this season.

Will Asensio stay?
