While we have players such as Gareth Barry, John Terry and David Silva who assure you of consistent performances all year long, there are some who prefer to leave us guessing. If they show up, they have the potential to win you the game.
They are always going to be a bit of a gamble. But that is not really a bad thing because they are capable of providing moments of brilliance that can inspire and lift the spirit of the team. However, it would be great to see them having a positive impact on games more often.
Yannick Bolasie, on his day, can create havoc with his trickery even against the best of defenses. This has made him an integral member of Alan Pardew’s side. Sadly, he can also be painfully wasteful in possession. All in all, an incredibility gifted player who often gets under-rated is Yannick Bolasie. He plays with so much aplomb, always willing to take on the defenders, making him a nightmare for full-backs.
Yannick Bolasie isn't a really a goal scorer, chipping in regularly with the assists, though. But suddenly last season, out of nowhere, he popped up with a 11 minute hat trick in a 3-1 win against Sunderland! And he has scored 4 goals so far this season, including a brace against Newcastle. Clearly, he is not just your average winger. He can be so much more if only he can be a goal threat more often. Love him or hate him, you got to admit that he is one of the most entertaining players in the league!
