    Mount starting against Spurs is a must for me.

    Hopefully we're not forming the bad habit of overly relying on the big fella to pull the proverbial rabbit out of the hat. last 2 games, max points in spite of subpar performances. We really need to increase the sharpness of our passing in the last third.

    Without Lukaku we possibly get nothing from this game as in last season (1 pt from 2 Villa games). Money well spent.

    Jorginho and Mount are needed for Saul and Ziyech. Pronto.

    I didn’t realize how much we needed this but suddenly I’m feeling a bit better already. My gut is calming down. Well done Marina and co.

    Good loan signing and a needed one given we effectively only have 2.5 midfielders (Kante injured half the time).

    I wondered the same so I watched the next few corner routines and noticed that Azpil marked VD because we are partly zone and partly man to man. Generally our big lads are in zonal marking (CBs, Luk, etc) while the smaller lads mark their main targets to prevent them from having a free run to the ball. It may not make sense but it's been pretty reliable in defending set pieces which was a massive problem under Lampard.

    Zero cards against Liverpool. Speaks volumes. Even the Sallah petulant kicking the ball out didn’t warrant a yellow. Ok.

    200% spot on. Sadly.

    It wasn’t a terrible performance but this game, in patches, exposed his physical frailties. We didn’t play a compact game today - doesn’t favor Jorginho given he’s not a ‘runner’. Anyway I’m splitting hairs given the team’s overall solid performance today.

    Today wasn’t Jorginho’s best game. Last week he ran the show but today he was a bit of a liability for me in midfield. Presuming that Kante is fully fit, he likely starts alongside Kovacic at Anefield given the sub pattern today.

    We can’t do it with Werner because he cannot hold up those entry passes into/ near the box. Physically Werner will always be brushed aside and skill wise, Werner’s first touch/ trapping is poor for a target man or CF role. Werner’s role is to play off Lukaku as an alternative option to Havertz. That is where his pace and energy will be enhanced for this team and will lead to more goals / assists for him.

    Last season we get no where near scoring that goal.

    He certainly tried but thankfully the referee didn’t fall for it.
