Bit of a worrying performance, that one.
In midfield and up front it was a pretty decent team on paper, but we seemed very ineffectual with our possession.
Our only tactic seems to be to try and one-two our way through packed defences, but when that doesn’t work we look a bit lost.
Apart from a few periods this season (first half hour v Man City, the 3-goal burst against Villa, beating Galatasaray) we don’t seem to be gelling. I wish I knew why (and I don’t believe it’s all or even mostly down to injuries).
It would be ironic if, after all those years of getting top four against the odds while spending less than zero on net transfers, we missed out now that we have started spending the big bucks again…
