I am not sure if it’s just London based teams, or whether Leroy is finally finding his flow. Don’t get me wrong, he has always had pace and will go to beat a man out wide, getting to the byline before putting balls in.
Recently though, he has started to turn in field and run at defenders. He beat five or six Arsenal players last time out, and did similar today before laying off to Bernardo. Unlike last time, it didn’t result in a goal, but it was close.
Add to that pace and threat going forward his ability to get back and defend, and you have a fantastic player. He seems to have become physically stronger over the season, and will not shy away from a shoulder to shoulder.
