Mo Diame has transformed his career at the club over the past few months. The Senegalese midfielder has been superb playing in a more withdrawn role alongside Jonjo.

He was once again excellent against Huddersfield at the weekend, and fans on Twitter were quick to note our no.10’s transformation from a failed signing into an integral member of the starting eleven:


Mo’s consistency playing in central midfield in recent games has been something to behold. He came to the club with the reputation of a marauding no.10, but never looked comfortable being rotated with Ayoze Perez. He had expressed on a number of occasions his unhappiness at his overall performances.

Yet, playing in a deeper role, he has found his best form once again. The centre midfield position is not an unfamiliar one to him as he played it regularly for both Wigan and West Ham before his switch to Hull. However, his partnership with Shelvey in midfield is more surprising. It seems Rafa has found the perfect combination in the middle of the park.
