Rodrigo not doing much for our defence compared to the work Roberts put in back there so assuming Alio is a more defensive move..

Yes, it was a tactical sub to see out the game.

What can I say? Paddy's on fire, Rodrigo's already looking a massive upgrade on Roberts and Koch is starting to seem the real deal. The rest of the lads put in their usual shift. Great win.

A very good performance over the ninety minutes, we definitely deserved all three points.

Beautifully crafted and finished winning goal.

Meslier key saves in the first half.

Koch faultless at the back

Phillips, Dallas and Klich class in the midfield.

Some really good play by Harrison and Costa and Poveda

Nice touches by Rodrigo

Paddy just keeps on scoring.

Spot on, a very good performance.

And we finished off the game intelligently.

Thought it was there for the taking today, important to win these kind of games. Koch was class, Meslier two wonder saves, Rodrigo helped create the goal. Poveda it's great he's confident, but a bit too greedy so far, needs to learn to pass.

He's likely still building up his Bielsa fitness without a pre-season but Bielsa did the same with Fulham, brought Alioski on to stabilise the game and hold onto the lead.

Still look way below our best. Man Citeh next up, so can't afford to keep giving the ball away in that game. Roberts offers nothing, if only Shack was given the same opportunities he was. No Harrison next week either.

Meslier brilliant.

Subs played very well. It's a shame Poveda and Costa play the same position. The two of them at the same time would run opponents into the ground.

I think maybe Bielsa was building his team in the Championship with an eye toward how it would work in the EPL. Bamford and Costa, in particular, are flourishing. They were hindered severely by the Championship style of play.

Koch was excellent today.

All three points away from ER. Great day.

If the season ended today, we'd be playing in Europe next year. :)
