I thought Augustinsson looked much more effective than Digne when he came on, so wouldn't be shocked to see him given a chance now.  Digne was sloppy all night, culminating in that ridiculous attempt at a first time volleyed cross/Van Basten shot that sailed into the Holte End.

I liked that he was subbed almost immediately after that. I doubt it was because of it, but it deserved to be.

Augustinsson looked better than Digne in the pre-season friendlies in Australia and that was under a manager who made everyone look worse. I'm sure Unai can get a decent tune out of our Ludwig.

I can't make my mind up about him.

I have a sneaking feeling (not just based on last night) that Emery also isn't convinced.

I think he's decent, and an upgrade on Targett, but was rubbish last night.

Risso defending the full-backs but most other areas are problematic  ;)

I think Digne improved at the back end of last season but has been mostly unconvincing this season. He's very lightweight and isn't the modern day, creative full back I hoped he'd be. Needs to get better.

Not great last night, though better than Targett IMO.

I've noticed that he crosses when he is running at pace with the ball or when he sprints onto a pass. Though if he receives the ball when stood still or if he stops when in possession, he almost always passes backwards/sidewards.

I thought he did ok last night (bar that idiotic volley into the Holte) but seem very much in the minority here on it. Thought he defended ok as nearly all our problems first half were on the other flank. I thought his crosses were decent some of them but we only had the Watkins in there against the likes of Neves, the keeper and two CBs. I don't think we remotely threatened from a set piece either.

In the main I haven't been impressed by Digne since he has joined, he's an average defender, physically light and one paced. When he was getting those assists for Everton I'm assuming they had the likes of DCL and others ideally suited to getting on end of crosses? We don't have that.

I get the sense Emery isn't sold on either Cash (crossing is abysmal) or Digne but time will tell.

Mings doesn't pass to him unless he's already marked and has no option but to pass it back. When he's free waving for the ball he never gets it.

Yeah seemed like him and Mings were having a game between themselves in the first half last night of playing each other into trouble.  He had a shocker last night, but think he is OK on the whole.

With the imminent arrival of another left back, I think it's clear Emery doesn't rate Digne. Is it possible they were both at PSG at the same time?

I'm also don't think he rates Cash either.

I don't rate Digne and Cash isn't too bad defensively sometimes but his crosses are a goal kick.
