Bakayoko was poor today, there's no denying that. However I do still believe he will turn out to be a good player for us, right now he needs a bit of protection from Conte - benching him for a couple of games will probably do him some good.

A lot more highly rated players have struggled with the speed and intensity of the prem in their first seasons.

He's been shocking all year. He's sloppy, can't pass and loses the ball 5 times a game. Can honestly not believe people on here were sayinghes an improvement on matic, he's not even an improvement on Chalobah.

The reason people believed Bakayoko would be a upgrade on Matic was reasonable.
Matic was average last year and truly awful the year before.
Chalaboa is a different subject and I confess to being a massive fan. Shame about his injury but I still hope to see him back playing and I think he can make the Workd Cup squad.

Bakyoko has been excellent v spurs man united athletico so we can see how good he is. it’s just adapting to intensity of league and games are thick and fast, I’m not going to write him off just yet but was poor yesterday, chalobah is the one that got away. Really gutted he left,

Baka has had more poor games than average ones. Good ones are far and few. He hasn't settled properly. I will not write him off but he is coming across very lazy off the ball and sloppy with his passing. Gulf in class between him and Kante. He needs a rest for sure.

Bottom line is not every player hits the ground running. Not every player settles in this league, especially coming from the French league. He has had some very good performances. However like yesterday he seems like a rabbit caught in the headlights. Yesterday it was all going on around him. I think he has a good engine and is strong. Sometimes players need guidance from players around them. I don’t think he got that yesterday. He got better as the game went on. He will be an improvement on Matic. People on here go on about matic, but the majority wanted him sold as he had been poor. I think Bakayoko will be fine, we will see the best of him later in the season when he settles in.

Baka is 21 years old for Christ's sake - give him a break - Conte has admitted that he wanted to keep Matic to ease Baka into the side (proves Conte was right but £40m+ from Man U was hard to turn down) . With Drinkwater getting up to speed, I expect to see a Kante / Drinkwater combo a lot more.

Now Drinwater is fit Bayakoko could do with a rest and told to watch Kante who does not waste any energy and picks up the intensity of a match straight away which varies according to the quality of team we play. As the season has worn on Bayakoko seems to panic and gets clumsy and gives the ball away but he is very quick and athletic and this season if handled sensibly could be a real asset next year; remember Drogba looked like all over the place in his first season. As far as Matic is concerned I don't think we should miss him, he has done little of note since his over hyped first two games and that $40m was good business.

Drogba was rubbish in his first season.
