He is like a mix of Pogba and Kante

I can see Pogba in him

Whilst he will receive the media title of the “Caicedo replacement” I see so much of Yves Bissouma in Baleba.
The way he is able to use brute force and power to create space is something we haven’t seen since Bissouma left. To play like he did yesterday at 19 shows his potential https://t.co/mskRK55F6T

Baleba was fantastic today. Just what Brighton have been missing in midfield. Brilliant in the tackle and incredibly dynamic on the ball — he can drive through space, and hold onto the ball really well. I’m excited to see how he develops as he becomes even sharper.#BHAFC 🔵⚪️ pic.twitter.com/GJEXnMUFEm

Baleba is such an excellent ball career! A dream possession player when under pressure. He's running that Brighton mid against mighty LFC. Can clearly see why I've been clamouring for his selection. 35 mins pic.twitter.com/FL0U2hsmeB
