What's with the general reluctance to whip balls in?

Better, but not quite the right decisions made around the box.

Sterling needs to be less selfish.

The passes/crosses are on we just don't seem to be seeing them often enough and when we do it's often poorly executed. Still think it'll come good though :)

I think the opposite. He needs to be more selfish, he’s always looking to set someone up. Just run through and leather it.

I think it’s clear we have more quality. Not making it count yet though. A lot of poor decision-making.

Alli has been rank so far.

Either or, for me he's stuck in the middle of not really doing either. He's been our best threat though

Maybe in general, but the last two times he’s held onto it for too long.

Dele Ali has been very poor. Henderson too. They have both given the ball away far too much

Alli needs to be in the middle off Kane
