To close for comfort?
It could have been 5-0 easily, yet again defensive errors and lack of concentration almost cost us the 3 points.
But credit Kloop and his team to work on the counter. Our 2 goals came from quick counter-attacks. Winning the goal high up the pitch, players picking the right pass and movements. Outstanding.
High balls remain a big concern, so do set-pieces. Why can’t they admit they need a defensive coach. It’s been more than 10 years since Rafa’s era, where we had debate on defending.
I could go on and on about this.
Meanwhile, looking forward to midweek’s game against Spurs in the EFL cup. I hope to see new faces, such as Grujic, Ings, Origi, Brannagan, Lucas, Klavan, Moreno, ATA, and maybe Mignolet can start too.
It’s going to be a good game, against a Spurs side struggling to get goals. We might have to watch out for Sissoko though.
