Alonso is so technically good. That was a volley on his weaker foot. If Yedlin had not touched it Barkley was there to score anyway.

Should Kepa have done better on the goal? Was a small gap in the corner and still got through.

I was saying he does not seem to have the strongest wrists. He seems to get to things then lets them through. 

That aside, is there anyone that still wants Alonso gone?

Should have been more comfortable then it was. Thats why you have to take chances when you get them. Should have been 2-0 by HT. We did not break them down much in the 2nd half as much. Needed two set pieces in the end.

Giroud was good when he came on got an assist. Thought Kovacic looked ok for a first start of the season. Morata had a quiet game we have to find a way for him to be on the end of chances running in behind in these types of games. This is why we need more forward thinking wide men who run in behind. Too many passes were to feet not much in behind.

Feel we might benefit from putting Rudiger  on the LCB position . He is faster and can cover from Alonso better. Azpi played far deeper and narrow. He did not keep the width at all. Feel Azpi would help Luiz better and Rudiger will help Alonso better. Disappointed with Luiz in that goal but I can not say I am surprised.

Glad we have this fixture out the way. Hate Newcastle away, better early in the season than later as Newcastle are slow starters.

I don't think so.

That was an awfully powerful header from very close range. 

I think he does well to get anywhere near it, much like the first goal last week.
