Your defence doesn't just consist of your back four, it consists of your whole team. We have the best defense as we have conceded the least amount of goals in the league thus far.That's a slightly optimistic assessment. And here's why:
I think Arsenal's defence of Koscielny, Mertesacker, Bellerin and Monreal is just as good as ours, and City's too once Kompany comes back.
Honestly, De Gea and Cech really give Lloris a run for his money on this. I think De Gea is the best in the league, Utd would be sinking without trace for the last two seasons without him.
Weird match to post this after Rose got turned inside out by Zaha, Trippier has only recently come into this good form, Walker hasn't gotten back to his Best Young Player form and Davies still doesn't scream ability at you. Granted, they're better than most of the rest of the league though.
I also agree with this and think that many others wouldn't. I'm just glad he's finally applying his talent for us rather than just running in circles and not passing forwards a la Parker.
Barkley plays in the same position and looks just as promising to me, but Alli is definitely up there.
Winning the league should be no one's expectations. We should be aiming high, but we also needn't be disappointed if we were to 'only' finish 4th in the league this season.
