Nikola Vlasic needs to be given a chance against Crystal Palace this weekend.
The Croatia international finally scored his first goal for the club last time out as the Irons beat Watford 4-1.
And it seems as though he is finally coming good after his £27m arrival in the summer.
It takes some time for David Moyes signings to start impressing properly at the London Stadium and Vlasic is getting there finally.
With Said Benrahma set to leave the club in January to represent Algeria at the Africa Cup of Nations, now is the time for Vlasic to have the chance to actually prove his worth.
Jesse Lingard has been touted as a potential target at the turn of the year but it just doesn’t make sense with Vlasic finally starting to show just how good he can be.
There’s no need to go and get Lingard, either, when the main deficiencies in the squad lie up front and in defence.
It’s time for Vlasic to prove how good he is and ensure that we simply don’t need Lingard.
