There are still a few kinks here and there that need to be ironed out, with our No.8 gifting goalscoring opportunities after losing possession in the middle of the park.

However, we can most certainly feel excited about what Szoboszlai can offer us throughout the season if he can maintain these numbers throughout the campaign.
