Lichaj Upbeat

Lichaj Upbeat

Eric Lichaj has admitted he is quite optimistic about his chances of breaking into the first team next season after his impressive performance against Peterborough.

Speaking on the Official Site Lichaj believes his versatility of being able to play anywhere across the back four will only enhance his chances of breaking into Martin's first team thoughts.

'It was nice to be involved with the first team and I've been getting a chance to play with the guys. I am happy, I'm progressing, maybe a little slowly, but I'm still progressing.'

Lichaj admits competition for the right berth is tough with Luke Young, Habib Beye and Carlos Cuellar (suppose you could add James Milner, and Nigel Reo-Coker to that list as well) but if he can't get a break past them he will be looking at going out on loan to get some more first team experience.

As for his versatility, he added:

'I would say so (an advantage) because I am not limited to one position. I prefer right back but I'll play left back aswell.'

Good enough to be on the bench IMO

Who knows has every chance. Especially with no real new signings. He was real impressive on the left and in the air. If we see another performance like this then who knows, of course one game isn't going to get yourself first team

could be a problem for MON similar to Luke Young. If you have a player that can play in either full back position comfortably how can you play them out of position? He should have insisted that he can only play central midfield or central defence, seems to be the best way of getting in at right back!

I was very impressed with his all round game v Peterborough, more so than early last season when I had the same opinion as Glensider. Only one game I know but if he keeps it up he ought to be given the opportunity to show what he can do against Premiership opposition at some point.
