Erik Durm: Held in high regard by Borussia Dortmund

The talented 21-year-old has broken into Dortmund's first team plans this season, a year after completing a move from Mainz, and made his debut on the opening day of the season in a 4-0 victory over Augsburg.

Big things are expected of the Germany U21 international at a side who reached the final of the 2013 UEFA Champions League.

Dortmund have an abundance of riches at their disposal, but also place plenty of emphasis on the nurturing of young talent.

They see Durm as an integral cog in their future and have moved to tie his services down until 2017.

Dortmund's general manager Michal Zorc told the club's official website: "Erik Durm is a talented young professional.

"He has shown, like others have before, that you can still achieve a first team squad place through good performances in the reserve team matches."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
