Unless someone else gets injured or needs a rest. He adds depth and experience.

He hasn't played for two years (other than very badly in a a handful of games for us and Burnley) so I think that experience card is being massively overplayed.

Absolutely.  If nobody gets injured, suspended, tired, or has a loss of form and at no point do we have a need for fresh legs or experience during the remaining games then certainly last night proved we don't need him.

He might actually be getting up to speed of course. He was on an improving trend when last seen.

There must be a reason that Chelski paid £30M plus for him

May be but other than man city game we have done quite well in games he has played. We need him as part of the squad,

We were losing both games with him on the pitch.

Nakamba and Luiz will not last the season playing 90 minutes every game. We need someone to rotate with them.

That was probably the first time Nakamba and Luiz have played well at the same time. To imagine that will continue and that neither will get injured seems fanciful to me.

Heíll be getting played a lot to get him up to match fitness. We donít have a lot of cover through the middle. Could be an important signing come the seasonís end.

Agree, we need experience and a decent depth in the squad. I actually agree with others when they say he is improving match by match.

He hasn't had a good game yet, not even a half decent one.
