Compared to previous recent seasons we are so mature now and manage games so much better than we used to and its probably why some think we are not playing well. this is how you win things managing games and expectations. We will go to Porto with a good lead which means they will have to come at us and that will leave us playing a game which we excel at counterattacking.
With players coming back from injury and players finding good form we have never been better placed to make this a historic season.
The emergence of our defence this Season has been the key in our management of games. In Seasons past we would have conceded a lot more goals with the likes of Lovren, Klavan, Moreno, Mignolet and Karius in tow, of that i am sure. The addition of Alisson and van Dijk coupled with the emergence of Trent, Robbo and Joe have completely transformed our defence, it is unrecognisable from the previous shambles.
My comments relating to poor performance are purely down to the lack of output from the midfield, that has been clear to see by anybody. We have lacked creativity, we have lacked goals and we have also lacked guile. Hopefully with the supposedly permanent implementation of Fabinho as defensive midfielder then we can see a bit more from the midfield three, as we did last night. With the Ox still to come back it is looking good for the rest of the Season.
Hopefully that will be the case.
