Nikola Vlasic may have started his campaign to put the Jesse Lingard return story where many believe it belongs in Vienna tonight – out of our minds.
Ok, despite Mark Noble making the usual comment that our opposition were a good side, they didn’t look much better than above half way Championship to me.
But despite that it was good to see the Vlasic potential begin the become reality as he caused real problems inside the box and floated in a great cross for Yarmolenko’s opener.
Kingard could still be on the way back I suppose but hopefully there’s a lot more to come from Vlasic because what we saw tonight was pretty exciting at times.
Obviously we need to see it happening against Premier League teams but he did his chances of appearing at that level no harm tonight.
I’ll be fascinated to see what he makes of it when he gets a chance after this game.
