I'm not saying Skipp is that bad (nice pass to Werner), but is he better in that attacking role than Donley would be? Donley got the instincts to create chances, even if its a step up from PL2. At least give it a shot. Even if Donley had a mediocre game, I actually don't think our midfield would look worse in terms of creativity.

He’s literally had about 5/6 passes to him where he’s had one player in front of him to take on and he’s passed it backwards. Are you blind? I know it’s his first game but he needs to show up a bit more.
I think he's done ok given the amount of game time he's had this season and only 1 week at the club

Naff defending has cost us, we’ve been sloppy at the back, rusty perhaps the best word.

I think Timo has done alright actually, clearly lacks confidence and he’ll have to get used to the jeers when he puts a shot over the bar, but you can see how his pace can stretch teams and get us in.

The midfield, well, the midfield is what you would expect given it’s set up with injuries and absences. Neither Skipp nor Hojbjerg have been bad for me, they just don’t suit the way we play. Especially Skipp being asked to play higher up, it’s like asking a fish to climb a tree - just not built to do that job.

What I would say, that I haven’t seen much mention of is Richy having a good game overall, got another goal but he’s also won the ball back, made some important clearances and been busy and pressed well.

With 12 outfield players missing and others likely playing through minor illness, I can’t complain too much at that first half.

Just bloody annoying that Hojlund and Rashford has magically found their scoring form against us.
