Wöber primarily plies his trade as a centre-back but has been signed to provide competition at left-back, where Pascal Struijk has been filling in for the injured Junior Firpo and Stuart Dallas.
He’s made 21 appearances in all competitions, including the Champions League, scoring two goals and assisting six. In comparison with Pascal Struijk, Wöber has averaged just 1.4 tackles per game this season, while Struijk has managed 3.1 according to WhoScored.com.
