Similar Type of Player: I’ll probably be putting my head on the chopping block here as the player he most resembles for me is incomparable. But the driving runs, the confidence to take on the defenders, the ability of providing the spectacular goal, the intelligence to look for space and awareness of his positioning for me all resemble a certain Thierry Henry. Do not twist my words, he is not at that level (yet) but he is player to keep your eye on.
Footy Files says
Mbeumo has been a breath of fresh air to the Championship this season. The combination of Benrahma, Mbeumo and Watkins (dubbed BMW) has culminated in a fantastic viewing experience and we strongly recommend a watch if you get the chance. It would be a shame to see the trio picked up by other teams at the end of the season, and a promotion to the Premier League at the end of the season might lead to everyone having the pleasure of them playing against some of the world best. Fingers crossed.
