Issues all over the pitch. We can’t feed the forwards. Even when we do, it comes right back. Jordan keeps trying to outdo himself with how much he can lose the ball. If Banega wasn’t on the pitch, we’d be losing possession a lot more.

Óliver for Jordan. Ocampos/Munir for Rony. I’m sorry, but Lopes is done out here. Even if he were in his preferred right side, he’d be doing the same thing. Nothing.

Suso can only play when he can pair up with 2-3 players and a hold up striker. To move in and out of the centre. Otherwise its so static and he will start looking for 0.5% chance plays and random crosses. I credit him for working hard tho although it hasn´t been super usefull he is trying.

Rony Lopes, is absent as realistic mentioned. Shamefull. Although he isn´t all the blame. Him and suso are like players who value is erratic and only attacking wise. Nothing else. Which can make it look very bad if it doesn´t flow.

Lopes is fucking lazy and shouldn’t have a shirt anymore. He had a chance to save that corner, but he stood there watching it roll out. Pathetic. Not a Sevilla player.

This team without Banega scares me.

What a fail, we had a clump of four players not marking anyone from the corner, it’s totally abysmal, lamentable and unforgivable. Caused by Kounde being played out of position, he and Diego Carlos can manage corners.

We can win this, how? long balls for En Neysiri and Ocampos in a 4-4-2, Rony is better in la cancha, as the pivot behind the front 2.

But it’s more likely we’ll turn to one of Lope’s systems with De Jong.

They’re taking the game to us while we should be taking the game to them.

I wanna see el mudo tonight. He will do something Escudero just did.

Yeah lopes was the weak-link by far. He did nothing. If I was Lopetegui I’d sub him off at half time. Would sub Jordan off too. Not been effective at all.

We kept possession ok and created a couple of chances. However, still not enough going forward and I’m not impressed with vaclik again. He could have done better to prevent 1st goal.

Furthermore, I don’t agree with Lopetegui changing the defence around. Kounde and Carlos had built an understanding at centre back so why mess with that? That’s disrupted our defence as Gomez and Carlos are not used to playing together.

Hopefully the changes 2nd half will make a difference. Vamos!

Yeah lets start with Gudelj for Jordan, that would increase our possesion by 7% and Ocampos for Rony so we have 11 players on the pitch.

Lope responds with Ocampos for Suso, Munir for Rony and Navas back at right back (right wing even)

Glad he made the changes at half time!

I swear at the training ground, Jordan has to put all those free kicks in like its baking bread.

We are looking lively and ready to fight tho! Vamosss

Cazorla off, they’re looking to shut up shop

Banega is a bit slow on releasing those through balls. Only knock I have against him today.

Holy shit how did he save that?
