Has Saiz done enough to get himself back into the starting XI, and if not the starting XI at least off the bench?
Bielsa on Saiz: "He played well today but he didn't create superiority (in going past QPR players). Playing well is a step forward. Now he needs to find his capacity to make the difference." #lufc— Phil Hay (@PhilHayYEP) December 8, 2018
It sounds like Bielsa wanted to see a bit more from Saiz against QPR, but will Saiz be able to work his way back into the starting XI on a more regular basis with Kalvin Phillips having to play at central defender, and perhaps even once Phillips returns to his more familiar role in the defensive midfield? It remains to be seen, but with a trip to Bolton Wanderers coming up, perhaps it’s another chance for Saiz to shine and get himself back into the lineup.
