Another 8 corners and we never look like scoring from any.

Zouma, Rüdi and Giroud should have scored. All had free headers and they all went wide

So? You've watched enough football to know that some days teams show up and other days they don't. Them being bottom of the league doesn't mean we automatically get to hammer them 6-0.

No, but I expect better than that. How many clear chances were there? It's not good enough.

Hoping they're saving themselves for the semi.

We must be bottom of the corner stats at both ends

Well that that’s the third day in eight when the team didn’t turn up. Only difference today is 3 points

Struggling to get excited about the cup.... All about top 4. 

That said, am sure I will feel different at kick off. We owe them

A win with no scary moments in last 15 - I'll take that even if it was a poor performance.
 

Keep the good performances (and Mount and Kante) for the next two games.

Their keeper has a save percentage of 83% in that game, Kepa got 0/0 so his average won't change. It is a funny way to look at things, save %.

The position in which RLC is playing and Barkley has played in the last few games is the most bizarre position I've seen in a long time. The player doesn't really get back and defend, they don't attack the opposition's area, they don't take part in the build up; we could play someone from our academy in that position and it wouldn't make a difference.

Agreed - it is weird.  Pretty much as though both are being allowed to play the game they want to with no pressure to defend and none to score except from the odd worldie.

REally - I though we got quite close on 4 occasions.  The choo choo train re-appeared o suggest there has been a bit of practice again.
Rudiger, Zouma and Giroud all had free headers at the same spot that they might have scored from.
For me it was a classic example of how it is not that difficult to score against a team that doesn't defend corners well (Norwich or Chelsea).

I should think Norwich are bottom at both ends.  Maybe 2nd from bottom.

that was dull but it was 3 points. Maybe we didn't want to ruin their -42 goal difference too much

Feeling the same. Have enjoyed their whining about VAR today though!
