But the defence he is in shipped 3 goals. Is he playing well apart from scoring at the other end?

That it. Goals from centre backs are a welcome bonus but it's more important how he's doing defensively.

3-0 defeat by Marseille last night. He can score as many goals as he likes but it will never take away from the fact that Lyon team look horrendous

He shouldn't have bothered breaking into the team at all.

He'd have had a genuine chance of first team ball at Palace this season.

Unlikely - Hodgson wouldn't be one to take a risk of a young, unproven centre back; especially when he has two good international centre backs at his disposal already.

He has been linked to a possible move to Everton recently.

It's been a bit of a baptism of fire but I think overall this season will provide O'Brien with great experience.

He's playing alongside some really experienced and well known players which will only stand to him in the years to come. 

When you look at the Lyon squad on paper, it's still relatively strong despite a lot of their key players being a bit older. E.g. Lopes, Lovren, Tolisso, Lacazette, Tagliafico - have all enjoyed very good careers at the top level.

There's also some highly-rated youngsters on the books too, with high transfer values: https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/olympique-lyon/startseite/verein/1041

They are currently six points from safety, but surely they have the personnel to get themselves out of this mess. 

In an ideal world O'Brien sticks around to help Lyon survive this season, and maybe gets another season or two out of it, before securing a nice 15-20 million euro transfer somewhere else in Europe, or back to England.

Football isnt played on paper though and Lyon genuinely look by far the worst team in the league at the moment.

It makes it really hard to judge O'Brien imo. He's getting starts at a high level but making mistakes that are costing goals. How would a club planning to spend 15-20mn take that punt on him over more of a sure thing?

This lad is quite the threat from a corner. Now has an assist to add to his name.

Hopefully Lyon can gather a bit of momentum if they see this game out.
time is the stuff that life is made of, don't waste it.

He's 22, playing regularly for a big club (albeit one who have fallen on hard times recently) in one fo the top 5 leagues in Europe. The amount of people on here who expect our young players to be flawless, finished articles from the get go is mad! They are learning their trade. Nearly every other player thread on here is the same.

Regardless of how the rest of the season pans out, this is fantastic experience for him and will aid his development. He's an exiting prospect. It's a shame for him he's a CB or he'd like already be in the Ireland Senior squad given the exposure he's getting

Great news. Lyon seem to be slowly improving since he got in the side... not saying its all on him haha but he's doing his continued chances of first team football no harm at all.

I keep an eye on the score closely so I can look at Lyon supporters reactions to him on Twitter. He seems a bit of a cult hero now, they really have warmed to him. Tongue
