Great win against a very solid West Ham team. Thought we were good in the first half in a close game but second half I was very impressed with how we took it against from them and really limited what they could do.
Szoboszlai and Salah for me were both excellent but hard to find a poor performance on the pitch.
It’ll get marked down as another routine win against a mid-table team but I think by the end of the season it’ll be clear what a good victory it is. West Ham will finish in the top 7.
Great win against a good side. No bad performances to note. Midfield looking really assured. Dom will get the plaudits because he’s so eyecatching, but Mac Allister had a terrific game at the base. Solid but unspectacular in the first half but really impressive in the second.
Bar maybe Matip (who was good to be fair), this is our best XI in terms of shape atm, with the likes of Jota adding spark to put games to bed. Still early so I’ve been trying not to get carried away, but I’m starting to feel more and more excited about what this team can achieve. Spurs will be the biggest test yet.
Side note, that Paqueta for West Ham really looks a player.
Again we start a game in a casual manner, allowing the other team to take control and make chances. We were really lucky not to concede at least one goal before we got the penalty. And again it takes a half time pep talk from the boss plus some tactical tweaking to take control of the game and start making chances ourselves.
I thought that Jones did really well, even in the first half, and the slagging off he got from some was really unjustified.
Really don’t think that’s a fair description of the first half. We looked very slick in possession and just needed to be more clinical. West Ham were not “in control” - they just started and ended the half well.
Antonio: “I am backing myself over Liverpool,” "You know what, I think we are going to finish higher than Liverpool this season. I’m putting it out there. “I watched the game [Liverpool 3-1 Wolves] because it was before our game and Wolves could have run away with it!”
Matip after keeping him in his back pocket for the entire game:
Games like these make me wonder how the years A.S. (After Salah) will be like. He was involved in almost all our attacks and really showed us (for the umpteenth times) the class he’s made of.
Really glad that Gomez had such a superb game, he looks like he’s finally back to full fitness and ready for an extended run in the side.
Love Nunez and his passion! He really feels like part of the family now. His goal (especially after that miss…) really really glad for him.
And what more needs to be said about Szoboszlai?
YNWA hope we keep this up!
