It is quite simple how to explain our losses, defensively both our fb were not fit. Plus our two winger pretty didn't help them. Arsenal pretty much had a field day on the wing thought they played 343 (I watched the game in patches) but they played basic 4231. Not sure it was fitness issue with puli or Werner but when you are not discipline defensively you need to produce on the other end otherwise **** happened.

Offensively, I think until the end of the season either cho or Ziyech need to play. Both Werner and Pulisic are just super2 direct. 

What does this say about Lampard then? He knew what he had going into the summer and he bought his own players to add to the squad but is now struggling to fit them in and how to use them. We're in December and we're talking about Werner being used out wide like a winger while god knows where Havertz fits into all of this.

Also, people can talk till the cows come home about needing Ziyech, Pulisic bla bla bla but at the end of the day, our football is still bloody predictable. Having Ziyech back would just mean another outlet for us spamming crosses into the box. Nothing new. And FML if we spent all that money only to remain a one man team and with a Sam Allardyce-esque football.

All smiles from our lot shaking hands at the end with Arsenal players, that's half the fucking problem.....mates, friendly, nice nice.....fucking dog shit mentality 

Need @Tomo to tell us how we don't gift points to all trash out of form teams, fucking joke.

Lampard needs to go, this is beyond awful, absolutely zero excuses.

No I mean all the bs favours they are getting game in game out. I would say though that on paper our squad is better.

Ah okay. 

Even if you think United are getting favorable decisions from VAR, the stats this season are not as skewed as they were last season, and certainly not to a degree where it influenced all their games since Arsenal.

Also forget United, what about Everton who beat us when they were lying in 10th place?

Just another piss poor of a performance where we were too predictable and 1 dimensional.

Our signing has been very good on paper but other than Chilwell who imo is pretty much a plug and play the rest is more of a question mark. I think Lamp thought 4231 was the idea. It didn't work quite well because Havertz struggled and we need kante to cover everyone. 

Spamming cross is not a problem. Pool does that all the time, they just do it with far more intensity. Offensively our problem is more on puli + werner. Against wolves, I said we were Pulisic fc against Arsenal we were no one fc. Both of our flank were useless offensively and defensively. We made arsenal looks good because we didn't attack and defend properly, it was a joke. 

Once CHO came in, I thought we look far better offensively. Now both flanks work offensively. Pulisic is far better on the left. oOn the right side I said last year I love willian, mount and james combination on the right. It was the same with cho. He is not as direct as puli and he hold the ball better. it works very2 well.

Yeah well my point is that the formerly 10th place Everton is now sitting in 2nd place.

Its not just United who had upswing in form and table position.

Granted we should be more stable than those teams., but at this stage of the season you can't call anything.

Oh it is a problem when all we do is give the ball to James to spam crosses onto the head of the Abraham or Giroud. There is very little to no variation with the kind of crosses we put in - we have even put high crosses into the box for Werner, Pulisic etc to win in the air FFS! - and we only do it from the right side.

Crossing to Firmino is one of the plays Liverpool try. They also look to cut back to the midfield from crossing positions and try to play through the middle.

With Chelsea its side to side and cross. No variation

Whats been more apparent for me this weekend watching the top teams and to a certain extent Wolves, is just how good they are in tight areas at playing quick fire, rapid football, retaining possession and then driving at teams.

Instinctive finishing as well was another thing. Mane's finish against WBA....Chest finish bang, Maupay snap shot bang......It's rare I see us do it but with added quality.

I'm not sure what they done in training apart from laugh and take the piss out of each other....oh and flick peoples ears
