Dreadful game management. They haven't even needed to play well to get back in to the game, and in fact now look like they're going to twat us. 

 

Keita has to come off.

Fabinho or Ox for Keita, anyone else but him. God, the guy is a dinosaur.

Ox?

 

I'd rather leave Keita on.

 

The answer is Fabinho....there is no 'or'

Keita has to be fired in to the sun. 

That's more like it.

Keita fell apart after his goal, really poor. Milner not much better to be honest, putting it about but been terrible with the ball.

 

Regardless, how was that first goal not offside? He literally steps between Matip and the ball on the backpost.

They’re getting a lot of joy out of us in the spaces between the full backs and the centre backs. Bring Jota on for Keita or Mane and tell them full backs to play just a little more conservatively. They don’t want the ball we don’t need the extra body in midfield.

Keita’s career with us in a nutshell. Flashes of brilliance but let down by lack of application and a weak mentality. 


At least he’s had flashes of quality in this first half, and some of his pressing in their half has been brilliant. Problem is he’s too weak one on one in our half.

 

Henderson on the other hand gets hardly any critisism, and has just been utterly crap for the whole half. By far the weakest of the midfield three. Also Robertson has been poor.

 

If we had a normal PL quality keeper we’d be down by at least two goals. Fortunately we have a world class one.

The midfield will rightly get a lot of shit but to be honest it’s been crap all round since the 15th minute. We’re lucky to be level. 
 

Almost like the City first half, begging for the whistle by the end of that half we were that bad.

That's pushing it

 

He's a fucking liability.

Midfield definitely needs some new blood should have been in the summer but definitely in January.

It would help if we had Thiago fit .  They have an extra midfielder and it shows on the counter because we can't keep them pressed deep in their own half.

They should’ve disallowed the first goal but fuck they could’ve easily been two goals ahead. Our entire back four has been pretty poor. Virgil is a fair bit off his commanding best still.
