1) Train, Train, Train

Some pundits have already pointed out that Mudryk hasn’t been given a fair run in the starting eleven. There is some truth in that as he has started two games in a row only once since his arrival in England.

However, the fact that Graham Potter, Frank Lampard and now Mauricio Pochettino have all opted against giving him regular game time suggests there is more going on here. Pochettino provided an insight after the defeat to West Ham when he said he is not doing enough on the training pitch:

“First of all he needs to build his continuity and trust during the trainings during the week.”

The first priority for Mudryk, therefore, is to work harder in training so he can get more chances to play.
