Still a big fan but some of his play has been v rusty.
The chance v Leicester where he dallied on it to try and win a pen was poor, and whatever that was today was terrible. Caught between hitting it and taking it on his knee maybe?
It’s just that killer instinct stuff again. Add those above to the poor 1v1 against Chelsea before the break and it’s recurring beyond rustiness.
Richarlison’s control can be bobbly and awkward at times. But give him it with a sniff of goal and his technique is suddenly much more reliable. He’s also got that aura where you know he’ll be dangerous whatever the game is like.
Agree re DCL that general play has been a bit rusty. Decision making, when the play has been ok/ decent balls into him, hasn’t been great with lay offs and link up play not clicking at all.
To be fair to all 3 of our strikers, aside from awful midfield platform atm, there’s no striking option to rely on when things are stodgy for everyone
