Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa: the player giving Fulham a chance of survival?

By Daniel Zeqiri

 

Central midfielders who can dribble are among the most valuable players in football - just think of how Paul Gascoigne, Patrick Vieira or Andres Iniesta are lionised years after they stopped playing.

Fulham might just have found their own version of this rare beast, with Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa completing more dribbles this season than any player in the Premier League. Yes, more than Adama Traore or Jack Grealish.

With Anguissa also ranking highly for tackles made, it is easy to see why his midfielder performances have caught the eye during a run of games in which Fulham have been far more competitive.

Scott Parker's team were written off in the season's early weeks, but head into festive schedule outside the relegation zone.

For this week's Football Nerd, I've analysed Anguissa's importance to their team and his unusual statistics.

This week's screamer

 

"Arsenal have fallen into that classic trap of trying to have their cake and eat it, believing they could build for the future while enjoying immediate success. Perhaps the FA Cup win seduced them into that."

Jamie Carragher on why Arsenal need to give Mikel Arteta time but their muddled recruitment could handicap him

Pogba (via his agent) basically came out and took a figurative dump on the club and Solskjaer. And not for the first time. Yet Oli doesn't have the balls to drop him and continues to play him.

Basically telling the world that Pogba is bigger than the club. Pretty embarrassing for them.

A nice draw between the manc's would be lovely

Let's hope so..do think Man U will win it though..City are very up and down and league wise anyway Man U not sooo bad. Ideally loss be lovely cause they're 3 behind with a game still in hand from September.

You never know Layla, I wouldnt be surprised if united win, I do expect the ref to give them their 126 pen of the season though. A draw would suit us well.

Every time Ole looks to be on the brink of the sack United win. So I expect a couple of ultra-soft Rashford penalty awards that Penandes will score to win them the match.
