Whilst i agree it's pre season, and that's never a barometer worth looking at, I don't agree with the bit of I've highlighted.
I think he has , along with one or two others, plenty to prove this term.
Two or three magical moments a season isn't enough at this level.
Oh, I meant in pre-season, pink.
In terms of the season proper, he along with the entire squad absolutely have it all to prove, no player should be a guaranteed starter without earning it.
For me, as long as they come through pre-season fit and healthy, that is all that matters. Judge them on their performances when the season begins.
At times Anderson was carrying us last season, what with Lanzini and Yarmolenko out, and Arnie throwing a strop, hopefully with extra quality around him, he will continue to flourish.
I wouldn't worry about his pre-season form though, as I said he looks like a player who is holding a bit back.
