So, Arsenal drew with Liverpool. Let's hope we don't screw this up...

It's got to the point where I'm actually hoping Batshuayi doesn't start tomorrow. We have to go with the false 9 against that slow and old Everton defense. If they start with Williams and Jagielka then Hazard, Pedro, and Willian should rip them apart.

Playing Everton at the wrong time imo. They just hired Allardyce not too long ago and guess what, since joining they are unbeaten under him. We have faced two relegation-battling teams who have hired new managers roughly around the time period when we have played them. Palace hired Hodgson not too long before they beat us 2-1 and West Ham hired Moyes not too long before they beat us 1-0. Now we face Allardyce. Hopefully the curse does not strike again. Good chance to go well clear off Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs.

Hopefully Conte doesn't wait too long to bring on Cesc if this midfield struggles. I don't really love seeing Baka & Kante in a 2.

Why on Earth does Willian take it? Alonso is arguably the best free-kick taker in the league at the moment.

Just hate this pesimism from some of us. We aren't really doing anything wrong unless its not starting off full of confidence.

We should really be taking these apart.

Bakayoko has been so very wasteful and sloppy with his passing. Given it away about 6 times already.

You’re being unfair because I’m not hearing that about Kanté who has been even sloppier in possession. 

Edit;

Bakayoko is having a good game, he’s trying to move the ball forward with not so easy passes, winning the ball well and probably created our best chance. Constantly trying to break the lines. It’s when the ball gets to Willian and Pedro where we lack the finesse.

Everton look totally toothless but I feel like if we don't score first and demoralize them a bit they'll score with one of their only attacks.

Drab first half. Willian or Pedro need to be replaced

Baka has a good game so far. 


I wouldn't say that.

I'd probably sacrifice Willian for Cesc. We need his eye to break down their defense. Willian didn't play poorly but it's just so congested around their box that we can't break down that final barrier.
