I agree, I don’t think we played as poorly as it would seem.

That said, those counter attack goals just reminded me of us under Wenger. Lukaku on the right was a massive problem for us, good tactics from Solskjaer.

The last 18 minutes after they scored the 3rd we did nothing. It was pathetic. A game where we lose and concede 3 goals at home is a bad performance.

The injuries did disrupt our rhythm

Before the stats merchants come on, we had 13 shots to 8 and 5 to 4 on target, 63% possession.

But they had 3 goals we had 1.

Agree with Penfield. The counter attack was the normal thing for red faced.
Now his protégé is carrying on his tradition.
Hopefully he will get unstuck asap . Btw,even if he were appointed as head coach,
he has to keep winning and time is not on his side. Now with Pool/Chelsea//Mc and Spurs can compete with him. He will find it that much tougher to win the epl.I have not included Arsenal because I doubt the gunners can compete.
So don’t be surprised he cant last beyond 2/3 years.

With all due respect we lost our two main CBS and they brought on 2 of the fastest players in the world at 70 mins while we were chasing the game. Not easy!

Oh torreira please tell me you are not a fraud.
Don’t remind us of those players who showed a lot of promise when they arrived only to go down a steep slop.
Remember elneny xhaka Chambers mustafi.
Are you one of them buddy?

We can all agree that the defence is poor, but I think it is more coaching when you see most of the outfield players allowed to rampage up top at 0-0. Also Maitland Niles doesn’t understand the defensive line for offside (not his fault)!

Where we lost this one though was poor passing. Losing the ball when an easy pass goes astray in the final third allowed easy counters.

This counter attack by mu is nothing new. In the 50 th game of 2004-05 with the gunners 1-0 down,Wenger went all out to get to 1-1.Gaps appeared and it aint no surprise the bulldog went to score with the freedom of the wide open spaces.
If Emery wants to build from the back,he has to make sure his defence is sound. Furthermore the gunners are slow to react
after an enemys corner kick. Its pass and pass.
Why not a direct long /diagonal ball.
Until Emery recognizes this it will be tough to finish 4th unless he can beat MC.
Beating MC will be tough but itcan be done as some teams have shown.Park the bus and hit on the break.
