Yes, I’ve noticed how we’re second to lose balls more often than not
It’s not like the players don’t work hard.
But Sigurdsson is “nice”, Gueye isn’t that big as said but is also “nice” for a DM. Keane, apart from walloping that guy when he lost the ball last week, seems “nice”.
The PL is still physical.
Look at City when Ferndinho isn’t there, or Kompany.
Even Aguero is really, really strong for his size.
L’pool, Spurs are obviously aggressive in a good way mostly.
Arsenal have struggled with this since they were the opposite of what they became.
Seems like Sarri is saying the same things re Chelsea.
As I said, just examples, but Sig and Gueye do huge amounts of running. Can’t fault their effort at all.
But we’d be better if we had a unit in the attacking third and a massive grock, who teams had to run 10 yards further to get round, in midfield.
It’s this type of balance that can suddenly change the performance of the other players.
