Mediocre performance, but good result & job done. Main positives being the performance of Gk and the other 2 youngsters and no f###ing injuries!
All things considered, we've done very well recently, despite the performances dipping since the high of the Leicester match.
A ludicrous schedule of 4 matches in 10 days with a squad decimated by injury/Covid and we've somehow qualified top of our CL group, are 2nd on goal diff in the league, and are unfortunate not to be a couple of points clear at the top.
The lads now have 4 days off (with training) before a tough match with Wolves. If we can negotiate a win, we can rest everyone for the final CL game, giving us a week to recover before Fulham (a) on Sun. 13th before a massive match home to Spurs on Wed. 16th (hopefully Trent will be back by then, maybe 1 or 2 others).
If we somehow get out of this period with max points, we then have: -
West Brom (h)
so 3 very winnable games to end 2020, whilst some of our "rivals" have a very testing December.
So whilst performances have been sub-par (understandably) the past few matches, think we're about to go on a bit of a run.
We then have Jan transfer window and maybe the opportunity to do a bit of business, plus Thiago, Ox, Milly, Keita & Shaq could well be available by then as well, so a lot to feel optimistic about as we go into 2021 and an all-out assault on the Prem &CL.
