Exciting Cameroonian midfielder, Carlos Baleba Noom Quomah has retained his place in Brighton and Hove Albion’s starting XI to face Manchester City this afternoon at the Etihad stadium.
The former EFBC of Douala graduate put up an unforgettable performance a fortnight ago against Liverpool and Di Zerbi has opted to keep faith in him.
Baleba has been included in a crowded midfield that includes Solly March, Karao Mitoma , James Milner, Joao Pedro and Simon Adingra in a 4-5-1 formation.
19-year-old highly-rated Baleba only moved to the Amex last January on a €30 Million deal, and has now started against Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.
The Brasserie Football Academy product has previously displayed glimpses of his know-how but have a big job against the likes of Bernado Silva, Jeremy Duku, Phil Foden and former Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodri, who will certainly have an interesting afternoon trying to stop him.
Over the past year, the left-footed Baleba has ranked inside the top 10% of central midfielders per 90 minutes in the top five European leagues (England, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain) for shots, successful take-ons, progressive carries, fouls won, tackles, and blocks.
Baleba’s rise to the top has been nothing far a super story with no bums on a journey that has never been easy for many.
