Thought Kessie played solid too, won the ball back a few times and used his body to find the ball and get it out of tight spaces. He and bennacer together is young and energetic. We could use an upgrade probably but with Biglia out we cannot lose either of them

Hakan did a lot of defensive work and put in some good crosses. I still think he's much less effective in the left side and better as a CAM, but he provides so much cover for Theo and came back all the way to make a tackle to prevent a goal.

Samu has to be given credit. Even when he doesn't offer a great ball, the amount of hard work he gives makes such a huge difference. He presses and doesn't give up. Even when he gets pushed off the ball.

Leao did better today, he didn't let his head drop. He really is a SS and I think he could morph into a real striker. That sort of languid style reminds me of Henry, he's not as elegant, but he has the skill and stride that reminds me of him.

Ibra is Ibra. The difference between him and Piatek is really stark. He shifts defenses, because he drops back, then changes direction and makes himself available while also bringing others into play.

I'm not really sold on the 442, if I'm honest. I think we got overrun in midfield too often and didn't control the ball like we can and have in previous matches (without the results all the time to be fair). 442 makes me nervous. Kessie did so much defensive work and Bennacer did as well, but sometimes I felt like they were overwhelmed in the center.

Without Suso, we don’t look so lethargic.
Atleast samu not one trick pony, and he always run not like suso just waiting and wasting chance by loosing the possessions everytime his trick doesn’t work.

Lovely with a win, but weird seeing a 4-4-2. Without further reinforcements its hard to picture the best formation with our group of players.

I agree that Hakan is best utilized behind the strikers, but I would rather sell him and leave all romantic hopes for his potential behind.

I'm just happy Ibra and Leao played together and that Ibra is here in general. The hail mary race for 4th starts today

Legend stays Ibra. No Suso, no stress and frustation.

Now replace Hakan with Bennacer/Paqueta and Milan will be solid again.

Oh and we also need a better RB

Yes they worked well. Even if Biglia was available he'd struggle to cover either of those roles so if we carry on with 4-4-2 we're a bit light in that area.

  1. 3 points
  2. Zlatan scored
  3. No Suso

My top 3 for this game, absolute bananas

Also 4-4-2 looks interesting, but we need better synergy in central midfield. A top DM would have done wonders alongside Benacer in the mid.

Also a better LM would have been better than Calhanoglu, a Samu like one would do just fine. We wouldn't need in the short term a world class player, just somebody that actually moves and has speed, and fights for every ball like Samu does would be an immense upgrade.

It's a shame Rebic turned out they way he did for us. When playing for Croatia, he's exactly the player you're describing. Fighting and even bleeding for every ball out on the wings.

Bennacer - CDM - Kessie - Samu

That might work for the midfield for now, if Samu can keep up from his great game yesterday. Bennacer is what you described, not super fast but can be pacy and beat a man. Good at moving the ball forward and fighting for it.
