Phil Hay shares whether he thinks Leeds United wonder Crysencio Summerville will start v Bournemouth

Phil Hay believes that all roads point to Leeds United winger Crysencio Summerville being given another start against Bournemouth on Saturday 5th November.

Summerville, 21, was instrumental in the Whites’ win over Liverpool last time out, scoring the winner to give Leeds United all three points.

Speaking on his weekly podcast The Phil Hay Show, Hay hinted at Summerville being given the nod to start against Bournemouth due to Luis Sinisterra’s injury.

“I do think he’s [Sinisterra] the sort of player who they would’ve wanted to rely on pretty heavily and the sort of player who might’ve delivered something in the next couple of games, but as it is, he won’t be seen,” said Hay.

“So I suppose it does mean that kind of all roads when it comes to playing out wide probably point to Summerville after his performance at Anfield.”

A starting position in Marsch’s first XI will be a deserved one for Summerville if he is given the nod to line up against Bournemouth.

Summerville will likely be the biggest beneficiary from the huge win over Liverpool and it’s the perfect time for him to rack up some appearances.

After being given the number 10 shirt for the season, fans expected big things from the 21-year-old and it’s fair to say he didn’t live up to the hype initially.

Nevertheless, he is now the man to end Virgil Van Dijk’s notorious Anfield unbeaten streak, a tidy accolade for him to catapult his campaign into brighter days.

The winger can be a deadly threat when combined with fellow youngster Wilfried Gnonto, hopefully, Marsch starts to give the duo more playing time together.

Their link-up play for the heroic finale at Anfield was mouthwatering and a sign of what could be achieved by playing the pair together.
