As he should be. Southgate is out of his head choosing Slabhead and Dier over him.

Selfish I know, I just want him to concentrate on his game at City and continue in his impressive form.

Hope not. Being called up for England never does anybody any good.

NO NO NO NO. He has been so good for us, but I dont want him to lose his confidence with Southgate tactics just like DCL
