It was not the feisty rematch we may have expected; we were not behind after 10 minutes.
Not bothered much by Hull’s long distance shots
Still relies more on his speed than his true defensive ability to make interceptions, and was a little hesitant in going forward. And the school boy Row Z shot…
Good balanced play, and looked more comfortable not having to make runs up and down the pitch. Sagbo and Aluko did not trouble him much but there is not much of a doubt what his best position is.
We scored a corner! And it was basically down to his height more than it being a particularly well worked routine. The BFG still has issues that need sorting out.
As good a game as you can get from Monreal. There is still the marked difference between he and Gibbs in helping the attack, as well as one-v-one defending.
Very lucky to have escaped two red cards but there are a lot of positives about his game to consider him for a more regular role. We’d been talking about a sumptuous assist had Walcott made a better connection with his well lofted ball.
34? Show me his birth certificate. Man continues to burn and run and turn up.
Pretty football from Santi, another assist to add to the many that have continued to flow lately. Problem: what happens when Ozil returns?
Campbell: 5 (FOTM)
Spurned a 4th minute sitter and scoffed another decent one. He was supposed to prove that Podolski won’t be missed. He didn’t
Guilty of spurning two chances as well but under the circumstance of just a first start in 365 days, we bear with him. Good he got through 75 minutes unscathed.
Alexis: 8 (MOTM)
A delicious goal and assist. Fast becoming the routine output for Alexis. Has now scored in ALL competitions, bar Community Shield.
… Hope he was not injured.
