Barry Douglas was an absolutely brilliant signing.
@barrydouglas03 now has 17 assists since the start of the 17/18 @SkyBetChamp season. The left back grabbed his third last night since joining #LUFC in the summer. #EFL #MOT @AceContainersUK pic.twitter.com/qwXEYRe2D6— StatZone (@StatZoneSports) September 19, 2018
We all knew how good the former Dundee United fullback was for Wolverhampton last year, but he’s further cemented his place as one of the best attacking fullbacks in the Championship again this season. He’s already assisted on three goals this season, after assisting on 14 last season. He’s a perfect fit for a Bielsa team that gets width from its fullbacks.
And he only cost £3 million. What a steal.
On to the links.
