Isnt it nice to be in a position where we can debate which LB should start  and not be at all worried as to which one is selected

This. Honestly LB has been a problem for us for years but its great to have two quality left backs that we can rotate.

Hopr figne is not sold in summer he has been quality this season

I can see Digne playing against Spurs as he's better defensively, and Moreno for Ajax.

As a counterpoint, having an attacking full-back could be better as it pushes Udogie and Porro (if fit) back rather than inviting them to attack.

I'd say Digne is maybe the better defensive, more solid player out the two. Moreno is great, he offers us an alternative way of  playing possibly.
Yep, I agree, as I said they're very different players. I was actually really impressed with Digne for the goal because he snuck into the box in the way Moreno does, which is something he's clearly been coached to do.
I still wonder whether - with Ramsey unavailable - a Digne-Moreno combo on our left would work for certain games. I think the 2 of them interchanging between defence and attack would give oppoents a right headache.

Emery seems to prefer Moreno. I think he'll go with Digne tonight and Moreno Sunday.

I think Digne is just a better all round player. I donít think thereís much in it when Moreno is at his best, but when heís not quite there his defensive play really drops off.

I'd definitely be starting Digne against Spurs, Moreno won't be able to cope defensively with the Spuds forward line.

Left back is a position that we genuinely have 2 great options.  Same for centre half when they're all fit.

Nice little ball he put in their box in second half. Thought Luiz would have got to it.

Where Moreno shades it is his appetite to go past his opposition full backs and stretch their whole defence whereas Digne prefers a (typically excellent) first time cross from a deep position.

Digne gives us more balance, much as I like Moreno.

I think if everyone is fit, Emery would go with a full back pairing of Moreno and Konsa or Digne and Cash. Though I'm sure someone will say I'm wrong!
