AWB is a very solid 1:1 defender, total mismatch with Johnson, who needs to toughen up and start being threatening. Opponents must love that one hard tackle and he goes even further into his shell.

My initial concerns are confirmed so far. No creativity at all, Skipp looks completely lost out there. Both Werner and Johnson are too soft and prefer to pass back then run at their man. Defence has surprisingly been poor as well. Porro plays too inverted when we defend and it leaves Rashford with acres of space.

Lots to do second half if we want to get back in this.
Skipp made the pass of the game to Werner.

“Hands behind their back” is the new “diving in”. Someone makes an observation and it becomes a mantra.

TBH Lolo hasn't been better than those two tonight. Naturally still rusty and half fit, but that means he won't make 90mins, not without fall on performance level.
He has. He's been more composed on the ball and has given it away far less. Albeit Skipp made a great pass for Werner.

I agree that he won't likely make 90 mins. We're in trouble here...

Yeah PEH and Skipp have been okay but we lack that athletcism and revovery without Sarr.

We also are unable to penetrate United centrally without Maddison, Deki and Lo Celso....Son too
Completely agree mate.

We’d be winning this about 4-1 with all of those players back imo.

Rashford is causing us problems and Porro is getting no help from Johnson. I’ve mentioned this in previous games that Johnson is very slow to get back to help defensively. Werner is doing ok but his lack of recent game time is apparent. I’d like him to run at the FB more instead safely passing back .


Agree, said earlier Johnson off, Royal at RB and push Porro up.

Watching Timo shoot, you have to wonder how much of it is skill and how much of it is mental. While it is probably a combination of both, it's like he is shooting not to miss.

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.
Not just talking about this game. I fully understand the situation with the forwards, but it has been the area of the pitch that hasn't really clicked for us yet

johnson has been so disappointing we really need him to set up, that's what 40+ million signings should do

Would like to see more from Richarlison, Werner and Johnson. And Skipp and PEH. And Bentancur, Udogie and Porro. And Romero and VDV.

Vicario has been fine.
