Like Haller, already bringing in people all around him, holds the ball up so well. Is only going to get better once he gets used to the guys around him.

To be fair he's got £110m worth of players to cope with. Antonio should've been keeping up with Walker that's why he's starting, to keep up with Walker, the fact that Anderson has been switched to that side would suggest he wasn't doing it.

How many times must Jesus foul before a Yellow card.

38' | 0-1

This time it's De Bruyne's turn to try his luck. Fabianski is one again more than a match for the flame-haired Belgian.

They have to give the fouls first. Lino has missed at leats 5 blatant shoves in the back when our defence try to head the ball.

They are absolute shitbags for fouls in the opposing half.

I'd have Wilshere off at half time, offering little to nothing. Him and Anderson both look like they are both lacking fitness.

Our back line don't look comfortable in the slightest, been three separate occasions of players running into each other. Both full backs cause Diop and Balbuena to have a much harder job than they should.

Cresswell was left 2 on 1 ,I'm not sure what else he was supposed to do. Walker is also one of the fastest players in the league, not many will keep up with him.

We're doing well here. I'm liking what I'm seeing early doors. We're most likely always losing this unless something stupendous happens but it's nice seeing us giving it ago. We'll probably tire later on but so far so good.

43' | 0-1

Rodrigo warned as he goes through the back of Wilshere. That one hurt. "That's two now", Mike Dean tells the City man.
