Am I wrong in being happy that he scored and hoping he will get some more as should help us sell him in the summer?
He played well but I'm guessing when Lamela comes back from injury he'll drop to 3rd choice for that role so can't see him starting anywhere near as often as he used to under Poch
He isn't going anywhere in the summer I'd wager. I suspect Mourinho will rate him much higher than Lamela

For the first AFCB goal, Sissoko was in the wall and ducked under the ball !
As Pacino once said,"because we know, when you add up all those inches, that's gonna make the 'king difference between winning and losing".
Then of course got skinned by Danjuma for the second.

He ducked? You going to get on Harry for not jumping either? They weren't getting up for that.

I thought it was odd that no one in the wall jumped, but then remembered that Harry got his clock cleaned the previous game as part of the wall. I wonder, with the increased focus on concussions, whether players are being cautioned not to jump. I don't think they have enough time to calculate that jumping would be useless because the ball is too high. Or, maybe, they just decided not to jump in order to block a low ball.

Not a lot of good deciding not to jump and then the ball smacks you in the head anyway.

Watch the video (it’s on YT) rather than guess from a photo where parallax makes any guess meaningless. Verts jumps, Sissoko ducks and the ball passes inches above sissoko’s head.
I've already watched it by the way and you're still wrong, and the ball flies between Kane's and Sissoko's head regardless.
