    Main players I have a concern with Is bobby/Mane/Thiago

    salah to a certain extent, but when we score it's normally because of him, needs to stop diving though.

    Players like Jones and kabak shouldn't get the blame

    Thiago 4 tackles
    Jones 2 interceptions
    Gini 0

    We're in a right pickle.
    Issues at centre back largely the same.
    Issues in midfield being too lightweight. No fab, hendo or Milner.
    Can't carry a front 3 in their form.

    Need to adjust our setup to deal with what we have. Probably only able to carry Salah as a lone striker. The other 2 in midfield.
    Not many options for midfield tbh. No real warrior in there at present.

    I'd actually forgot about Milner being injured.

    One of 3 players who reliably bring grit to our midfield, Gini can on his day and thiago just gets booked too often.

    Wenger called it last week he said its our midfield that has caused the slump.

    He is bang on we just cannot rotate and two of them have been at the back.

    Nothing is going to change this season we just dont have the options to keep us fresh.

    I'll reserve judgment until this BCD shit has gone.

    He’s been terrible so far unfortunately.

    He adds nothing that wasn't there before. His passing today was abysmal.
    This season is a write off for all concerned so hopefully its different for the next.

    Thiago will be Gini's replacement. The two of them are so similar. Too much sameness at the moment in midfield.

    Hendo in midfield might have helped, but that's not going to be possible for weeks.

    It's a sad state of affairs when Naby coming into the side could make a big difference.

    hes slow and ponderous and under passes his passes. Reminds me of Lallana he always under passed his passes.
    I hope we can come to some agreement and let him return to Bayern..Unlikely, If Firmino is allowed to not score goals for nearly 2 seasons apart from here and there. Anything is possible.

    He's the only midfielder we have other than Hendo who will try and play it in to the forwards as quickly as possible, different kind of passing, doesn't have switches or balls over the top, but tries to play through balls and balls into feet he follows into our forwards quickly

    It's no surprise or coincidence our very best midfield performances of the last 2 seasons all featured the same 3 players, Gini Hendo and Keita, Keita's more direct approach on the deck with Hendo's aerial switches and balls over the top is a combo of threatening and testing the opposition defence only they can bring
