I think that is the best representation I have seen of our formation. The 5-3-2, 3-5-2 or christmas tree formation don't cut it- although Mirallas seems to drift everywhere and not really have a position when we have possession.

Christ, to only have Bolasie back with Kev on form like this.

I think he and Barkley are only playing well because Bolasie is out. If Mirallas was out on the right wing still he'd probably be as anonymous as before.

Is that definitely an own goal? Was Coleman's cross/shot not on target?

If it was a shot, would that have made a difference as to offside?

Lukaku, being at the far post, was not in the goalkeeper's line of sight. I guess it could be argued that Lukaku's offside position had an influence on the goal but I think the law is about its effect on goalkeepers not defenders.
