Plus - Phillips manipulation of the ball was stunning, inch perfect pass after inch perfect pass. Wonderful to watch from my MOTM

Minus - Nothing really unless it was Sean Dyche, how is he in a job. Wants to play 1970's football kicking chunks out of the opposition while moaning he can't field a full bench

Positives: Too many to name just one, but marked improvement in the way we deal with thuggery.

Negative: Alioski's shooting.

Positive: Rodrigo clinical again. Clearly wants to go to the Euros.
Negative: I really rate him, but Struijk was poor today and almost cost us the equaliser until Meslier saved his arse.

+ comfortable performance overall, very clinical.

- eased up mentally at 4-0 and let Burnley have three or four chances.

Pos: We looked comfortable once we got going.

Neg: Charlie Taylor had Raph in his pocket for the most part.

Yes, I thought Struijk was a bit off today.

Despite his ability I think he lacks a bit of confidence in himself and what he can do.

+ Pure class from Rodders
+ Klich scoring, so chuffed for him
+ Harrison maintaining consistency
+ Superb work rate from Raph despite being matched by an equally hardworking Taylor
+ Defenders great against one of the most physical opponents in the league
+ Phillips bossing it, at the back and going forward
+ Meslier tougher to get past than the Maginot Line
+ Alioski reported

- Bit of slackening off from defenders towards the end made Messi work harder than he should've
- Roberts looking more and more lost with each game

Don't agree with that at all, the best attacking player on the pitch v Brighton, quiet game for a change v Spuds but we looked well balanced while he was on. Not much time today bar excellent work in defence to set up an attack and then I'm ok with him not playing in Rodrigo for his hat trick, he was involved today in the 13 minutes he got. Not saying he should start, I've never said that but I'm happy if he does and he's only 22.

+ Took control of the game after a shaky start and kept a clean sheet
- Roberts, again.

Fair enough pal. I couldn't watch the Brighton game so will have to take your word for it, maybe I'd be saying different if I had seen it.

Pos - Defensivley looking very sound, much more confident. As a squad showing we really do have options and depth.

Neg - If anything at all, we took our foot of the peddle at 4-0, but still well in control.

Positives- almost everything.

Negatives- careless at times, gave Burnley chances.

:tup:

He played in Ayling with a nice back heel, wasted by Ayling
Audacious chip for Harrison who fired at the keeper
Lovely touch pass to Klich which gave him acres of space for the cross which ended up in the stands
2 nice through balls for Paddy that Paddy didn't control at all

Positives. Alioskis funny face.
Negatives. None.

+ I think Rodrigo showed his potential today with 2 sumptuous finishes. Perhaps £30m is not looking too outlandish after all

- Charlie Taylor plays for Burnley not us. I wonder if he’s starting to regret his move?
