I think the midifeld has done quite well the defenders need to defend occasionally

Imagine if we could defend as well.
I didn't even remember I had a signature.

We need pace in one of our centre backs. 

This is the big item. I don't think Mina is the answer to that particular problem, as my understanding is that he's not blessed with pace. Holgate coming back in will help there.

I'd almost prefer Lascelles over Mina right now for pace. We need another CB that can make up ground and isn't uncomfortable on the ball.

2-2 at least Keane can do something.

We need a midfield.

Apart from Gana’s excellent pressing, Schneiderlin’s sucide balls and poorly-timed lunges, and Sigurdsson’s erm, I’m not sure what they’re there for.

Ah, so that’s what Sigurdsson can do

I assume Keane scored. Myt stream died and when it restarted it said 2-2. I was plasantly surprised.

I’m not using it as a criticism of Gueye, he’s been everywhere.

More than he’s doing his own job and Schneiderlin’s

I think they are both doing well fault is the centre back pairing Baines and a poor keeper

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.

They create fuck all is my point.

It’s not their fault, it’s just none of them were made that way (apart from Sigurdsson from set-pieces)
