    Great game today. Very concentrated at the back, good in build-up. Wish he could play like this every game.

    He's like a new signing, great season so far. Let's hope he can stay healthy and continue like this.

    He's vital at the moment. Basically the only outlet on the left wing. Needs protecting.

    Atleti were clearly wanting him on the ball.

    This guy is the definition of inconsistent. One good game followed by one horrible game

    Why is this guy never questioned? He can have a decent match once in a while, but most of the time he's just average... We should be thinking about a left back, to be honest...

    Same problem with Alba as ever.

    Lack of end product.

    People will always bring up a few highlights moments like his goal in the CDR final or the ball to Messi in the Bernabeu, but his end product 90% of the time is just awful.

    He is questioned a fair bit.

    I think he’s a better defender than attacker

    It's pretty crazy the kind of attacking LB's teams have in Marcelo, Alaba, etc. Alba is good in a Neymar/Hazard type LW set up, where he just has to run and run and run, and then run some more to defend. In this system, he IS the Neymar/Hazard receiving the ball on the wings. Everyone knows he can't do much with the ball, it's astounding that Valverde cannot see this.

    Over and over again, Alba is on the LW, passing back to Iniesta. Who's going to overlap? Who's going to run behind the defense and cross? I think Semedo is much more potent in attack, and Alba should play the Semedo type 'safe' role and we should switch this system where most of the attacks begin down Alba's side to the right. At least for the interim, till we sort this mess out.
