Promising going forward, shocking going back.

Get Digne on.

Better in attack today. If that young keeper is any good? It might be a good idea to make him Pickfords deputy. Stek has been pretty poor up to now. Much quicker and sharper today.

Defensively, worrying, but attacking wise Iím really pleased. Some very good link up play especially down the left and we look like a team again. Keane got some confidence from that goal and Idrissa has dominated last 20 mins of that half

I know it was disallowed, but does Stekelenburg ever save anything? I can't recall him getting even close to one in pre-season.

yeah, few -- if any -- goals against this preseason have involved glaring errors by Stekelenburg (though that one would have), but he has made at most one or two, if any, great saves -- and you need that on occasion from a keeper.

i quite enjoyed that first half.. we looked half solid..

good attacking play, Cenk is class, cant believe the flappers who dont rate him.. good play by our front 3, they combine well with Siggy behind them.really liking Siggy infront of the 2 holding mids.. Schneiderlins been decent too!

would like to see Digne and Lookman in the second half.. maybe Dowell in Siggys role.

Disingenuous philistine.

Not really sure what a load of you have been watching. Defence has been typically shaky, but our 'terrible' midfield has been on top of theirs.

Yeah been really good for me and a good team ethic

Just to re-iterate, we're playing a Champions League side here, who finished above Sevilla, Villarreal etc, and only finished 3 pts behind Real Madrid, and 6 pts behind Atletico Madrid.

Pickford on to scream at the back might make the fuckers wake up, up top better up to now.

I'm of the unpopular opinion that Keane or Jagielka will look infinitely better if they arent playing together. One decent CB and we'll be fine

Cenk average at almost everything - but the boy is a fucking gunman.

Great finish, great run, great ball from Theo as well.

No control or progression from midfield, Gylfi on the edge of the box like a 4th attacker rather than coming to get the ball in the final third. Will be an issue this year. Leaves Morgan and Gana to the build up which is less than great.

Baines and richarlison good understanding. Heís superb in the air this lad isnít he. Keeps the ball very well and beats his man one on one no probs.
