I don’t know. Depends on what Moyes is seeing in training. Perhaps Lanzini just needs to get that match sharpness back and he can do some real damage.

May also just have more of the Anderson attributes for the role he is being asked to play.
Ah yes, the magic match sharpness, which kicks in after you've played a few thousand minutes of football and completely changes your acceleration and strength.

Ominous comments from Moyes re. Antonio given he's on the bench. That is one guy who history tells you should not be risked until he's 100% ready.
"He's probably not that ready to be honest with you.

"It's always a bit of a worry when you're bringing somebody back from a hamstring injury."

Interesting seeing as Pellegrini played a much better side bar Sanchez in midfield - will be interesting to see the result difference.
The old broken record, Pellegrini was a manager not deemed good enough to manage a piss poor team, now we have a manager who probably won’t be good enough to manage a piss poor team

b*llocks, Robbie Savage is the co-commentator.

Wonder how many time he will say his favourite word "nonsense"

Crap, Vardy’s only 2 goals away from 100 home goals, now you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see what’s going to happen

Is this a 5-3-2 with Lanzini playing striker?

What in the world?

Ominous signs early on, can't get near them.

This is going to be a long night I'm afraid.

So far I've seen:

Haller running to press but ending up out of position when the ball turns over
Noble and Snodgrass being destroyed by pace
Lanzini drifitng around in lazy circles doing nothing.

Not even one player as the outlet from a corner. 11 behind the ball. That's bleak, we're just happy to concede possession whilst running ourselves down to the ground. Disgusting.

You know you’ve made it when Robbie Savage is saying your team has no pace.
