Walcott is a key to our attack. Looking much better with him in the side. Great finish by Cenk too!

Don't undersell how bad this midfield is.

Schneiderlin is a decent but safe passer who doesn't show for the ball enough and no longer offers anything defensively.

Sigurdsson runs a lot and is dangerous on the off chance that the ball falls to him in a great position but he is seriously uninvolved. Tosun does more in the build-up phase than he does.

Gana is good at pressuring the ball wherever he is but do we really want him receiving the ball in attacking situations?

Schneiderlin definitely needs to be dropped, Gana needs to sit deeper, and I'd seriously consider Sigurdsson's role in the team.

We should see what Sig can do creatively with Richarlison, Walcott, and Tosun in the team with him. Never really had similar options in front of him on a consistent basis. That through ball for Walcott being an example of what I hope will start occurring on a more frequent basis.

I know it was disallowed, but does Stekelenburg ever save anything? I can't recall him getting even close to one in pre-season.

yeah, few -- if any -- goals against this preseason have involved glaring errors by Stekelenburg (though that one would have), but he has made at most one or two, if any, great saves -- and you need that on occasion from a keeper.

God damn, Sandro.

I really, really hope we see Lookman today...
