Yes, Iíve noticed how weíre second to lose balls more often than not
Itís not like the players donít work hard.
But Sigurdsson is ďniceĒ, Gueye isnít that big as said but is also ďniceĒ for a DM. Keane, apart from walloping that guy when he lost the ball last week, seems ďniceĒ.
The PL is still physical.
Look at City when Ferndinho isnít there, or Kompany.
Even Aguero is really, really strong for his size.
Lípool, 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. Canít fault their effort at all.
But weíd 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.
Itís this type of balance that can suddenly change the performance of the other players.
