holy shit, from the comment section: "He's taking credit for knocking United out for a third time lmao" (it's at 1:40 in the video)

Yes, that was an awful miss, but he also scored two and changed the game...
It's not like we haven't seen awful misses from world class players.
I agree he isn't a top striker, but he's definitely a solid one. Look at his numbers, he's pretty prolific... he scored like once every two games while playing for a defensive and mediocre team (Toulouse) in a defensive league (Ligue 1), and while playing for Sevilla he still outscores everyone despite not being the first choice striker. He performs well most of the time when I watch Sevilla.
I'm not saying he should play more often because he's some sort of Ronaldo, but because imo he's far better than the other strikers the managers have preferred (Vietto and Muriel).
don't get me wrong, i'm totally with you, his first goal was quality indeed while muriel for example has been outright shocking. all i'm saying is that he isn't exactly a worldbeater, and despite his overall decent tally he has been rather underwhelming lately, and situations like that one on one and what no one else knows, his training pitch performances, might be PART of the explanation (that's what i originally stated). ofc he's still motm and the one who decided this tie (even though i'm reluctant to give him full credit for two goals, the second one was at least half de gea imo)...
