Stats are misleading though aren't they?
Stanislas' goal was a peach.
Naismith's deflected off his own foot.
Benteke's was one of the best headers you'll see all season.
Whatshisface for Boro, that was a foul on Stek. The Beast or whatever his nickname is.... Negredo. I got there in the end.
The 5th one must have been Norwich's second goal, and I think that was a good strike as well, can't remember exactly. Can anyone enlighten me?
There's been no sloppy goals conceded. This can only be a good thing. Although, I realise we will see clearly what flaws we have when we play City next.
You're right, but there's more than one way at looking at those goals.
Stanislas had all the time in the world to pick that that one. Very little pressing.
Naismith was clean through on goal. The finish was fortuitous but he was allowed to get in one on one pretty easily.
Benteke's was a good header granted but Stek was a bit flat footed.
For the Boro goal Stek got his positioning all wrong and ended up ahead of the flight of the ball, catching it facing his own corner flag. Granted it was a foul but a cleaner leap from Negredo and it was a simple header into an empty net.
Norwich's second was a great strike but he waltzed in pretty easily and wasn't pressed so if you're giving players time and space like that you're gonna get punished, like the Stanislas goal.
The truth is somewhere inbetween the two perspectives but stats are stats.
