Well in my opinion he has improved a little with each game.
I am sure neither he, or Benitez expected him to be playing in high-intensity games from the start.
He was a free transfer who was bought as cover for DCL and Richarlson.
He hadnít played for 4 months and was playing in the Chinese league ffs.
People are expecting him to produce the form that he showed in Newcastle from day one.
I think given a few more matches he will contribute.
As for Holgate up front, what a joke.
That's where I disagree, there were a number of times where Rondon managed to shield the ball when punted up to him, and then lay it off or get a cross in.
He's obviously currently a step down from DCL and Richarlison, but to not give him any credit for small amounts of improvement today is either overly harsh, or deliberately refusing to see it.
Holgate struggles to play in his own position let alone showing him up, upfront! Haha.
Maybe we're spoiled with DCL. Rondon didn't seem to win a single ball up to him, so it just came straight back at us again.
Whilst Rondon is still miles off it, he was at least a small improvement on the Rondon we've seen up to now.
While team under par today
#### me, we need DCL and Richy back ASAP as Iwobi and Rondon are horrendous
