The cynic in me suspects we’ve been watching a bit of a dick measuring contest between Dele and Son as they compete to be the first to 50 PL goals.

Now that’s put to bed, perhaps they’ll play less selfishly.

Fuck a duck I'm exhausted from that half.

This is pure 90's football, loving our attacking quartet today. Bergwijn looks like he has been playing with us for years.

Would still take Jack though if villa go down.

Well ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?! :D


What an insane half. We should have scored 4 - and they could have three maybe four.

Despite our haphazard at times play in the final third we are creating good chances and Dele is getting in great positions. We have behind them beautifully several times. Bergwijn and Davies have linked up beautifully once or twice.

Serge is having an absolute shocker.

We looked better when Winks started getting on the ball. Get a modicum of control in midfield and we should win easiy.They are so easily got at at the back.

Come on push on 2nd half as they are going to feel aggrieved and come out 2nd half firing.

nice to have a lead but should definitely have had a few more.

What's with Sons run up, lol. Take 5 or 6 strides back, run up fast, and leather the ball. Simple. At least he scored on the follow up
I can only assume he's trying to read the keeper and place it at the last moment after he dives.

Problem is he's not very good at it.

weird that VAR rules on players infringing the 18 yard line but not the keeper being off it when the pen is taken

Good save by Pepe but he was off his line - if Sonny missed it should have been a re-take...same with Lloris against City, but both missed

Dele needs to up his game. Incredibly wasteful today. Over playing, not passing, missing straight forward finish's and generally being off the pace. We could have scored 3 or 4.

The timing of Toby’s equaliser cannot be overstated. We were a shit show for the first 25 mins.

If we were better and more composed on the counter attach though we could have gone in further ahead.
Swap Dele for Grealish and we’d be 4-1 up.

Hate saying it, but he’s a much better footballer than Dele is.

Let’s be fair, their goal was a bit of a fluke and they gained a bit of confidence from it. We’ve been on top 90% of the game
Agreed it was a fluke but I would say that they have had their chances. Davies has helped put a couple of times, Lloris has been the busier keeper and defensively we look woeful. On the counter we look fine but Villa are dominating midfield.

This should be about 5-3 to us at HT. 3 or 4 easy easy chances have gone begging.

I wouldn't say we're lucky to be ahead, because from about 20 mins onwards we dominated, but we need to cut out those stupid fucking errors at the back.

Davies has been fantastic.
