You know that’s not true in reality.
You can twist them whatever way you want and expected goals is a total pile of sh*t that doesn't mean anything unless you own an anorak and are about 12
Stats are interesting to a degree but need to be kept in context.
In this case the “expected goals” doesn’t really reflect the game.
Yes they had a couple of dangerous flurries but we were always more likely despite being lacklustre.
Coaches will tell you that stats help them notice things / patterns they missed in the game.
Jürgen hasn’t walked away saying “phew got away with one tonight did you see their expected goals tally, whooft - thank f**k we got a point!”
We were flat after 20 mins and struggled to zip it about effectively. I suspect the VVD ill rumour has masked a virus going round. Too many players were blowing out their hoops and slow on turn.
VVD had his poorest game - Robbo was leggy throughout etc etc.
Take the point and back to the training ground.
We end Jan 5 pts clear and 14 to go and City have a tough run coming up.
That’s us 4.5 weeks away from an insane December which must’ve absolutely stretched energy reserves to put us in this position.
Players coming back from injury will help the balance. Good options in midfield - though we absolutely do miss a Fekir type.
We’re a great team having a “
“slight” lull. It’ll be over very soon.
