The own goal cannot be derided, they all count, and more to the point, they all come from pressure. I can’t recall a professional game where a player deliberately put the ball in his own net.
Beyond that action, Dele’s overall game was only ‘alright’. The broad brush ‘total successful actions’ ratio was too small. 47%, when even his mean average is 58.7%. Too many black crosses. So that’s sloppy.
Passing accuracy was in the right range at 83%, and offensive duels at 67% are both very pleasing to see.
Is Dele back? The jury is well and truly out.
