He’s open to criticism as anyone should be, and it’s somewhat of a comfort that it’s his crossing and passing that is being (fairly) questioned. Means he’s doing his most important job, at least: he’s defending well.
He has areas to improve upon. In my own notes I write as I watch for match reports, I mentioned him individually for poor control of possession and also for using his pace not only down his flank, but to cover for others and get round the back of other defenders when they are struggling.
Considering the ridiculous way people go after Noble, Cresswell and Ogbonna for any fault they want, Fredericks is doing alright on here!
Edit: I should add that I also think he deserves time to improve, both because this is four games in and because he’s had spells in and out of the team whilst making a step up from in leagues and a move of clubs. He has till the end of the season to make it his own, as far as I’m concerned.
