So, he plays a lone striker at home to burnley.
Hhmm, MRP is setting himself up for a fall if we don't score again at home. Soldado scored in his last game. Lamela has been tripe, so I would of preferred 2 up top personally.

Agree0 Disagree0

For me the second half performance being poor is down to mopo. I'm a fan of stambouli but 1 up front and 2 holding midfielders we are asking for them to come at us. Why not bring dembele on. 68% possession 1st half. Why stand off

Still not a fan of Bentaleb, gets found out against top teams and very over rated . Stambouli should be playing from the start especially as the over rated one is going in Jan for a month . Oh, and please Mopo, keep the mercenary away from our team!!

Ps, another 3 points so well done boys . Above the lot from the library, even if it's for only one game so far!

I think we know that we're still finding our best team, but the starting one today did seem a step in the right direction. Still a season of transition, but hopefully the performances will keep coming.

I really liked that Eriksen was played centrally today. I think when he plays left and Lamela right then they both drift into the central space and cramp each other. With Eriksen having the control of that area (even though he does move around a bit) it felt like Lamela stayed wider and Chadli gave width the other side to stretch. So I liked the Chadli - Eriksen - Lamela attacking midfield.

I also agree that two holding midfielders did not work. I've long been a critic of the double pivot, far preferring the DPC system. With Bentaleb (Destroyer), Mason (Passer), and Eriksen (Creator) we stretched them well.

I'm also not a fan of Bentaleb, but if he does retain the first choice 'D' then it looks like Capoue will be moved on as we don't need 3 in that position, and we're not going to sell Stambouli 5 months after getting him in.

It also looks like Soldado may get moved on if Poch feels like Kane can play up front by himself. I don't think you can keep him as a sub option.

Fazio still looks a bit dodge, but the back 4 are taking a bit more shape and the chemistry is building. We're starting to look more like a team again!

Spot on Wulf. The interesting dynamic for me is the lift the team gets from Mason, Kane and now Walker. Players that perform like they want to play for us, lifting the performance of the others.
