Goals and assists for Gueye. Who is this new complete midfielder we have?!

Good shout, Drew.

Although Coleman and Baines will stay as the main two captains, Baines will get limited game-time. Make Gueye the vice-captain on the pitch, taking the role when Coleman isn't there. It would be a good gesture for someone who has always given his all and someone who leads by example.

His potential sale will be madness. Suicide.

I've noticed betting suspended on Gueye to Arsenal with Skybet? Anyone heard anything?
