From what I saw having watched the game, it all went wrong when Silva changed it up.. Ok, can be needed at times but we didn't need to at that point. It took the pressure off them because we went from attacking to defensive and bringing a defender like Mina on was a mahoosive mistake. I remember getting stick when I said he's rated because he scored against England in the World Cup and that's about it. He played for Barca? Well, he didn't did he.. They owned him and flogged him ASAP and we got ripped. He's not even as good as Mori and he was bad. Blaming Pickford for our failings misses out our poor defending. You win or lose as a team
Yep, it was a poor substitution, which I think shows up Silva's failings, the game was there for us to take, even at 2-1, but he took off a goal threat and brought on another, problem was it was a goal threat against us, not for us. We're awaful with 3 at the back at the best of times, yesterday Rondon was bullying us from the start, what better way of coping than to bring on a player who has looked like a rabbit in headlights every time he plays, and partner him with Keane who's still lacking the confidence he needs. The third goal highlights the problem, not one player tried to attack the ball as it came back into the box asthey don't know how to play that system, although Mina did take out one of our own players, which was about his only contribution to the game.
We also lacked a captain on the pitch, Siggy just doesn't have the presence and it seems to detract from his game.
Not to worry Chelsea next, simples😱
