Ferguson moving Richarliosn up next to him and the Ancelotti signings in midfield mean he can now focus on getting into the 6-yard box. If England can use him in the same way, he'll do well there too. Just reward for constant improvement. Contrast that with Moise Kean's attitude and application!

It appears of the 30 they show, 27 of them (if I counted correctly) were one-touch – okay, plenty of headers but even so. Apparently, this one-touch stuff is something new, but looks like he's been doing it for a few seasons:

To be fair, he has also missed a few chances along the way which doesn't help when reviewing his abilities.

The next month of fixtures will see if they have become a real deal and what better way to start it off than a good result against the RS.
Obviously we are all concerned about these international fixtures especially Calvert-Lewin, Yerry Mina and James avoiding any injuries.
Calvert-Lewin has earned his chance especially as Southgate has a habit of picking players after only a few good games but to be honest Calvert-Lewin has shown 100% improvement all round, not just his goals.
Sterling can score goals but is so infuriating at ruining a move when getting into good positions. If he had the brains of a Shearer or Greaves he would have twice as many goals as he has so far in his career.

Keane at centre back.
Pope in for Pickford.

By his own admission, he needs to work on his long-range shooting and his one-on-ones with goalkeepers. Get those right and he'll be an outstanding striker.
