That period second half yesterday where Rooney was linking up with Mirallas and Baines was the best we've looked at creating chances all season. It lacked a bit of a focal point though. If we presume Leicester are going to have a variation of 4-4-2, maybe matching them with Calvert-Lewin up front would be the best option. (I'm loathe to suggest dropping Rooney into midfield for obvious reasons, but this might be the kind of match where it would work too.)
Agreed. I also thought we lost that momentum when Rooney went off and Niasse came on. For the remaining time after that we werent having any consistent attacks or patterns of play in the final third as DCL and Niasse were very high (same against Burnley werent varied enough in what they were doing as a pair) and we missed that extra link.
