That red card was a blessing for Arsenal. They could just go back and defend. What a frustrating result. Anyways good with a clean sheet. Llorente needs to get in asap for Cooper.

Paddy has adjusted to the Premier League but we still need a striker to come off the bench .

I do worry about our finishing, yes we had no luck but so many situations where the shot was poor.

Happened vs Wolves, Man City to.

Unfortunately we still lack the individual class you need at this level.

Got to say that we did really well today.

Just lacked a bit of composure.

Mainly, we've been amazingly unlucky again.

We miss the guile of Pablo.

We have options in Gelhardt and Greenwood that are not used.

its not about being unlucky, we got lucky with the pepe sending off, we have noone capable of putting the ball in the net, and we lack quality especially in midfield. harrison can run all day long but NO END PRODUCT FROM HIM.

Really poor performance. I don't understand why Kalvin Phillips has been playing for England. Very slow and poor decession making all the time. As soon as the ball was played to him the speed of our attack was taken away. Really terrible passing from us through out the whole game. With these kind of performances there is no chance fighting of anything else than not to get relegated. Rodrigo was by far our best player, should have been substituted a lot earlier. I don't understand why Alioski is starting. His passing is terrible, he is very slow, he can't win duels. Ayling was poor tonight as well as Harrison, Cooper, Klich..well I don't find any good performances. Bamford did what he could but didn't get many chances. A lot to improve on all positions on the pitch.

That's the frustrating part. We had the chances just unable to capitalise on them

That's not lucky. Headbutting someone is a red. Not like Arsenal were dominating before the red.

You're a pessimist :)
We're a lot better than the teams below us.

Yep. Can't see two of Burnley, blunts, WBA and Fulham staying up.

We're firmly in midtable, which would be a good finish for us.

We’re better but if we get back into that rut again...

23 shots and 0 goals
We know we have had a problem with conversion in the past.

If we get back into that form again then it doesn’t matter how much we batter teams, don’t score and don’t win.
We are Premier League

Get Pablo back in as he can create and finish. I also think Gelhardt needs to be on the bench rather than a million wingers.

On a good note, we can't break the record for lowest points tally. 😀

Without a run of bad injuries I reckon we'll just about sneak into the top half. Much more satisfied with this performance than Leicester and Palace.
