One bad header from a young lad from a perfect smash and grab against the best (Imo) in the league.I said this to my mate on a run before but we are going to be so hard to beat this season, I can see us racking up clean sheets for fun, with a keeper and defenders who are determined to do that.
I could see sort of see the reason to go back 4. We were losing the midfield battle and needed an extra body there. With it being 10 men we could probably afford to lose one of the centre halves. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
I'm not having that we should have took Morgs off. He offers the calmness and positional awareness in the defensive midfeild area that nobody else in the squad does (with barry leaving. For all of his great energy and ability to tackle, Gueye isn't the type to sit in and try to control the midfield. Come on, imagine taking Schneiderlin off for Besic and having him and Gana in there. City's tricky wizards would pull them apart.
The only wrong step was Klaassen looked abit off the pace. Think Koeman expected him and the Sig to get their foot on the ball.
Feels like a defeat now but overall a point is good and I'm more confident going into the tough games coming.
