So it was good replacing Hendo with Milner the attacking from midfield made all the difference. Or was it the crosses from Trent and Andy I wonder. No problem tonight with creativity and it came from the route the team is set up for.
It was the way Watford set up mate.
Their midfield was too far from the defense, and too narrow.
They tried to use Deulofeu to stop Robertson raiding down their right, but Origi pretty much negated that by staying wide all match.
They thought Deulofeu could do 2 jobs; push Roberston back and negate his attacking, plus get in behind us to put crosses in.
It worked to an extent, but not well enough.
They neglected their left side, which meant we continuously created overloads down that side.
I don't know if they considered Robertson the greater threat, but giving that much time and space to a player who can deliver a ball like TAA can is madness.
I expected them to be better organised, but with our midfield 3 rotating, they didn't know who to pick up, and dropped deeper (but still not deep enough to really protect the back 4).
Of course we still had to take advantage of the opportunity presented to us, but we did that in style.
We were ruthless.
