Who the hell do you pick out of Auba and Laca?? you have to have them on together at some points of a game at least, its just disrespectful not to give both these guys solid minutes.


We stick to 4-4-2 and play them together.

Ozil in for Mhiki.

And they so positive together too. It's good to see them happy to play together and happy when each other scores. I love it.

Need Chelsea and City to lose now.

Liverpool will eventually drop points so a home win for them will be okay-ish.

2nd half bellerin was on fire. First half he was pinned back hard by Fulham while we were attacking pretty much all on the left hand side, but once laca scored his second and they stopped doubling up down our right, it set us free.

Tactically, pretty smart from their manager who knew he provides most of our pace and width, but he didn't consider Lacazette being such a baller.

Not sure I agree tbh.

4-4-2 modern day is a complete opposite of the classic offensive formation it used to be known for.

Managers today have turned it on its head, 4-4-2 now is one of the most defensive formations giving you that close deep, two banks of four like how Atletico has mastered then fast counter.

For us though I think we concede too much possession with it so against a top team it might hurt us.

Either way I trust the manager, I believe we can be good with whatever way he sets us up.

That 2nd half was a joy to watch. Every player playing their part. Confidence, determination and style.
Not seen a half like that for many years.
Really happy with the manager and the players - all of them.

Auba, Lacazette and Welbeck were all good today, but Lacazette was the best of the three.
I'd continue to start Lacazette and Welbeck... both work better at holding the ball.
Aubu might be better coming on when the game is more open.

Not today - Auba finished his chances well. His hold up play was still poor, but he didn't need it as we had lots of space.
