They've just taken their chances whereas we've been shooting like shit again. The front 3 are the consistent problem with the team.
Richarlison has only had one chance which he scored, Johnson has looked lively but admittedly been pretty ineffective, and Werner hasn't started a game for 2 and a half months. Not sure what more you want from them.

Our defense has looked more shaky than our attack today.

Playing well. Difference being they’ve got their decent attackers and we’re missing all of ours.

Midfield three are dominating it. Bentancur surprisingly the weakest link so far.

Johnson and Werner have got pace, but their ability on the ball is pretty ropey. Brennan in particular. Needs to grow a pair and run at the already booked Wan Bissaka.

We can win this.

Unfortunately no matter how ineffective we look up front, conceding two goals at HT is hard to overcome in any game

Redknapp and Keane correct to criticise Romero for his hands behind his back, he could’ve blocked it with his leg if he was balanced properly.

We played at walking pace since the equaliser when they were there to be got at. I guess it’s understandable with so many first teamers out but a lot of our usual build up and passing patterns have been missing. Very disappointing first half.

Just feel we need to play with more intensity.

We’re so much better than them but we’re playing so passively and meekly. Need to get some fire in our bellies and put them to the sword.

The big concern is we don’t have anyone on the bench to improve or change our attack, so many absences.

Considering both Skipp and PEH started AND we have a number of players returning from injury as well as a new player in Werner, I think we're doing OK. Bit concerning that Ange didn't seem to have a plan to help Porro against Rashford given he is still working on the defensive side of his game.

The midfield's been fine.

EDIT: Perhaps someone could explain to me why the midfield's not been fine?

We're too passive and stand offish in our defensive third. Missing a killer in midfield at the other end.

We've controlled the game well.

Think weve been unlucky tbh
