Looks like the perfect game for a slightly more attacking midfield set-up , so shouldn't be a massive miss in this one.

Totally agree. West Ham at Anfield, I go Fab - Nab - Ox and stick 8 past them.

I liked Mike Marsh.

Football aside , the fact that he offered to go round and kneecap Lucas Neill after him breaking Carra's leg warms me to him.

We really need him back for the Atletico game. There was a big fuck off gap in Midfield the other night. If he's missing then we're going to struggle.

Fabinho has been really poor since coming back from injury.

 

I don't think we necessarily need Henderson.  But if Fabinho doesn't pick up his form in the next few games before Atletico, I'd be wanting to see Gini in the 6 role (assuming Hendo is out).  I want the Fabinho who was bossing Man City earlier this season, looks a shadow of that player recently.  Hopefully games help.

Fabinho, Gini, Milner if Hendo’s still out. We need proper fighters in the middle against them, don’t think we can afford to carry Keita here.

Keita wins more tackles than anyone when he plays.

 

Not a fighter?  Lol

 

Should be one of the first names on the teamsheet when we play Atletico.

He never really seems up for a fight IMO. He tends to hide too after he gets clattered. I’d give him a run in the cup and in the games against smaller teams for now and re-assess in pre-season.

You have to be joking.

 

You think he just has the most tackles and interceptions without being up for the fight. 

 

Or has the most touches in games from the midfielders because he hides.

 

Seems there is a perception about Keita that he's been a flop & it is very very wrong.  

 

Didn't have his best game the other night (nor did anyone apart from Gini & Trent) - still won the most tackles when he was on the field.

No, just my observation. As @Lizzie Birdsworths Wrinkled Chopper told me, Keita is just too timid a player, except when we play Bournemouth. Please feel free to include him in your XI.


Where do you get your stats from just out of curiosity. Would’ve thought Fabinho would top the tackling stats.

The geeks on twitter.

 

Stephen is one of the best.  

 

Half time vs West Ham:

His P90 stats are incredible nearly every time he plays. 

 

I think people are merely looks for goals & assists when judging Keita, which is not the way to analyse a footballer properly in 2020.

I didn’t realise you were talking about the West Ham game only.

Not more than Fabinho he doesn't. 

 

Add to that - Nobbs has only played about 500 minutes of football this season.

He is.

 

Fabinho has well over 4 takeaways a game (tackles won plus interceptions)

 

Nobbs is about 2.5.

I have been surprised with how often he wins back posession or stops an opposition attack. However it's also true that once he gets clattered he seems to lose the appetite to carry on. Overall he's not as bad as many are making out here. I recall most on here thought he was rubbish against Norwich as well, but I don't think that was actually the case.

 

He's the type of player that will look even better when the team plays more cohesively which hasn't been the case the past few games. The overall team fluidity has been lacking so the attacking aspect of his play has suffered as a result.

Not surprising. Fabinho is a tacking machine.

People are starting to realise what he brings to this side when he's missing. We've lacked leaders the last 2 games and it shows. He's a very important piece of the puzzle and there's a huge gap when he's out.
