    I don't think his passing technique or vision are bad at all I just think he instinctively is looking to shoot before playing in a teammate when in the final third. Its how he plays and has been for some time.

    I would prefer a player in that role who is more focused on looking for the runs of his teammates then constantly trying to shoot from 20-25 yards

    God. Benching a guy for a game or two is not like you are benching him for the season. $#@! happens, players get into ruts and sometimes you need a drastic short term solution to make a long term solution.
    you so silly

    Why hasn't he worked on this? It only seems to have gotten worse.

    I think that is more a symptom of his loss in general form after his brilliant start to the season, resulting in him getting frustrated and trying to force things when they aren't going his way.

    We need to get rid of this 4231 in Europe, Dybala is too much of a defensive liability, and Khedira can't be only one of 2 mids, if we play against bayern or psg we will get torn apart more than what madrid did to us, idk why we're not sticking with the 4321, thats 100% the only formation we can use in Europe to have a chance

    99% agree. Not so sure about Dybala being a defensive liability.

    That midfield duo of Rudy and Tolisso that just crushed PSG is making me extremely confident we wouldn't get torn apart.

Let's just hope that we are able to keep the ball rolling, because if we can play out of pressure for the first 30 minutes, i believe we have a good chance at winning the match.

    Looked the usual 4231 to me too vs Napoli, esp in 2nd half, with the same 442 shape without the ball.

    Only diff was it was Matuidi in Mandzukic's place. Naturally, MM is more of a WF when we have the ball, and Matuidi played to his strengths like Sturaro last season. Edit: And those who think MM shouldn't start don't realize he does the job of a DM when we don't have the ball, not what a typical winger with some defensive responsibility does.

    Draw meant nothing, so Max went with another attacking winger in this game which makes sense. Should've played Marchisio though for ball retention purposes.

    Bargain, can't get a better goalkeeper even if you pay three times the money.
    And yet, some want a new GK for XI for next season.

    if you mean whoscored and sofascore, their ratings are based on individual stats. khedira had:
    - an assist and 2 key passes
    - a very high % of completed passes (above 90%)
    - 2 dribbles (which make messi the best player every single time; dribbles are way overrated by these sites)
    - and finally some actual defensive contribution with 3 successful tackles, 2 clearances and a blocked shot

    by the numbers, he had a more than decent game. and numbers aside, if he repeated this performance every time, i wouldn't had a single complaint about him.
