Happy with the first half performance, they didn’t have a sniff apart from that one moment of magic from mane. Adams had a decent performance and put himself about a bit, think he’ll get us a few goals this season. Redmond and jwp also squirted themselves well.
Second half there was some worrying signs, defensive error which lead to a goal. Romeu seemed to tire quickly in the second half letting players run past him easily but his yellow might have hampered his game and it showed a lack of depth In that position when he went off which is going to be a sore point this season. Valery seemed to shrink in the second half, didn’t close down his man quickly and letting the ball bounce and ducking out of the way of it from Liverpool clearances before giving it away wasn’t pretty to watch, apart from the cross to Ings and one tackle he offered very little after a good first half. And if there was ever a ref performance that favoured the top 6 today was it, some of Andre’s decisions were mind boggling, Romeus yellow and that tackle against Moussa where he didn’t blow up.
