He's doing half his job very well. I don't think transfer sensation Wann-Bissaka has assisted a goal yet, either.
It's not hard to defend his crosses because he does the same thing every single time which is just hit it low and hard straight at the person on the front post.
To be honest, I think that's a tactical thing. I recall an interview with Zabaleta a year or so back, when he made it clear that the thinking behind his overlaps was to make efforts to pass to feet, once he had the chance, and not to cross it up in the air, making the keeper's chance of getting hold of it much less likely.
I was reminded of that yesterday; I think Pellegrini is looking for a mixture from the flanks and its not as simple as Fredericks getting into the right position and then failing (like I would!) to get the ball off the floor.
Anyway; he's started every game and we've slowly but surely become more threatening down his flank.
If we get both sides orchestrating decent deliveries, Haller will be in dreamland!
