The whole group is available, Kova is with us again. It’s huge because Mateo has everything we need in midfield. He has experience, strength, acceleration, deceleration, he can dribble the ball and hit players. He’s fast, he’s got physical skills, and he’s experienced in big games and in the Premier League.
When we missed N’Golo and Mateo in the same game, we lacked a lot of quality, energy and experience.
Billy Gilmour did a great job in both games but it’s not fair to compare him to these players because they are more experienced and one step ahead in their development.
It’s what we need in key moments of the season. It’s big news for us that Kova is back. It has a huge impact on the dressing room at big games.
