Sanchez frequently gets a bad rap, and it is not unkind to say that most of the time it is well earned, however, this week’s match against Wycombe perhaps sheds some light in the underlying issue. In a nutshell, Davinson isn’t a rotten player, he just finds himself in situations where his concentration levels dip horribly. We know this to be the case by analysing everything he does, opposed to just screaming at the elements that cause us distress.
A passing accuracy of 87% is respectable to put it mildly, as was the Colombian’s total successful actions stat, of 78%. The boy’s basic competencies are there.
Take duels for example
6 interceptions (3 included here). 14 is good going and 2 where in the Wanderer’s half of the pitch.
Whatever is wrong, and there is something not entirely right with Sanchez, it needs to coached out of him, or he needs to moved on. ‘Great player – most of the time’ isn’t good enough at this level.
