Last Season Summary

2018/19 – What a difference a season makes. From blowing up in the Championship, to a slight murmur in the Premier League. Few would be forgiven he may just be a one season wonder. But two season’s ago Sessegnon came to prominence when he was pushed forwards into the attacking left wing role. But last season, Sessegnon was given a bit of a utility role before falling out of favour with the manager, appearing at left back, striker, support striker and right wing, as well as his natural position of left wing. For an 18/19 year old, inconsistent positions can lead to inconsistent performances unfortunately. However Sessegnon still managed 2 goals and 6 assists in the league last season.

Footy Files expectations this Season

2019/20 – We think that Sessegnon is onto a winner regardless of what happens this transfer window. If he stays, he’ll get regular first team football at a high level. If he leaves, he appears to have one main suitor in Tottenham, and whilst usually this could limit opportunities, having a manager like Pochettino should excite anybody who enjoys seeing youngsters given an opportunity to thrive. We’ll see where he ends up when the window closes.
