Manager Erik ten Hag, however, was quick to shut down any suggestions the 19-year-old midfielder is lacking in quality as of late.

“He is not in a form dip at all, he is on the contrary reaching a stable level,” he said.

“We can always do better, that’s what we demand and he also demands that of himself. He is very critical of himself.”

“It is very clear and clear that he is at a very good level,” continued Ten Hag, who highlighted Gravenberch’s contributions to the match.

“He has played some great games this season.”

After 21 games so far, Gravenberch has one goal and two assists to his name in all competitions.
