Huge improvement 2nd half, and VVD MOTM!!!!!
I liked Hendo along side Fabinho and in a double 6, he has more freedom than playing as the sole 6, but still prefer Wijnaldum and Fabinho partnership for now.
Despite looking settled in the 2nd half, Lovren still worried me He needs to step it up next game!
Is right. But I wonder if we would see more from Gini than we would any of our other mids in more advanced positions, which would be an option to play Hendo instead of Gini with Fab.
Lovren was nervy all game, megged a couple of times and some sloppy passing. Wasn’t the best day at the office for our defence in general other Virgil. Robbo, Milner and Lovren could all easily have cost us a goal/penalty at one point or another. But luckily mistakes that went unpunished.
We all loved the fast paced, blow the opponents away as quick as possible football we played last season but must admit, I’m enjoying us see us play in a more controlled way and gradually picking off the opponents. We are creating just as many chances and getting more goals than earlier in the season. Whilst in the most part, being solid at the back. Little bit how City played last season, except they weren’t this strong in defence and goal. It’s a style of play that’s working well for us so far.
