Very important win today…….very impressed by Cataldi’s performance but my question is, Why is he playing in the Lucas position and not pushed more upfront where he is more effective and dangerous as we saw with the goal?

We join in when we go to Lazio though and we try to embrace their culture and their way of doing things. We had some tourists near us when we still had Payet at the new stadium. He was on the bench and they weren’t watching the game but went down the front to film him warming up
