His kicks will be negated if Brown is pushing the pace like he does. I think Brown has much better hands.
Alves has been out for some times so that is definitely something to consider. But if Alves comes in looking sharp, I think he will destroy Brown standing. The layoff could be a big thing though and Brown is on a pretty good run right now so I could very well end up eating my words.
