Brighton’s captain, Bruno is more than 20 years older than Callum :)

We’ve been good so far, could be a bit sharper but I believe we’ll win this.

Well we are playing Brighton, 15th, at SB. ;) 

It's definitely a good lineup for a home game against weak opposition.

A bit suicidal against stronger teams: not enough players defending (pure math).

Great goal, inital pass from Eden to Callum was great, excellent low centre and finished well by Oli. Eden should have scored chance few mins before tho or at least hit the target.

Jorginho can't play lone holding midfielder in the PL. He needs support if you're gonna play him.

Both Kante and Jorginho are better suited to a double pivot in front of defence. He can continue to play his normal game but has less ground to cover. This allows Kante to play his normal game too. Kovacic is better suited to a midfield two as well.

The balance with the lone holding midfielder is off. Making the defence appear (even) weaker.

he doesn't. He plays a DLP role, like a Pirlo.

Kante and the LCM should provide that support, but the system does not quite work. RLC as LCM does not provide that, hence my comment about using this lineup against strong opposition.

Come on, I can see that. I didn't say defensive midfielder, I said holding midfielder. As in the midfielder who sits deep.

Agree with the last part. Though Cheek has never been tried at LCM. This is only his second start in the PL

I knew it from day dot that Odoi was going to be a huge player for us. Absolute menace on the wing. What a player.
