Pro's - Roberts, a quality performance all round

Cons - Brentford played well for 5 minutes and scored twice.
Best 11, everyone fit - Meslier - Ayling - Firpo - Koch - Llorente - Phillips - Dallas - Raphinha - James - Roberts - Gelhardt Bench - Klaeson, Struijk, Rodrigo, Bamford, Forshaw, Harrison, Summerville

Same
Effectively down to ten men when the first went in against the run of play, Kalvin was already injured and immediately taken off.
While reshaping, they unfortunately got the second.

Pro - Rescued a point, it would have been a huge 3 points for them. Whilst 3 points for us would have been far better at least we have stopped a rivel from getting all 3 points.

Negative - Canos wasn't hurt by the object thrown from the crowd. While I would never normally wish injury on anyone he is just a nasty little sh*t. No doubt the FA will come down hard on us for it but for me any away player deliberately winding up the home crowd like that is simply asking to be attacked. For me it is incitement to riot. Yes celebrate like that in front of your own fans at your home pirch but to deliberately try to provoke the crowd - well you get what you deserved and shame it wasn't something harder or sharper.

Positive - rescued yet another point at the absolute death.

Negative - we look so soft and brittle in defence when teams run at us. The small squad could now really damage our chances of getting out of trouble.

I wouldn't have thrown anything but if you deliberately wind up 100s of fans by doing what he did it is hardly a surprise if one or two react. Celebrate normally and nothing would have happened - therefore he brought it on himself.

Pos: Goals from Roberts and Bamford. Paddy gave it large when he scored. Tyler's celebrating was more subdued.

Neg: Injuries to Cooper and Kalvin. Lucky our next 4 games in December are easy ones.

After allt he concerns with the team's fitness it is good to see that in back to back performances we have been going strong right to the end. But for the late shows 1 point from the last 2 games wouldn't have been a good return but hopefully it shows that as a team we are entering peak fitness which could be crucial in the coming months.

With the fixtures piling up the fitness of players will be key, but squad size is what could catch us. Struijk, Philips and maybe even Gelhardt being back could really matter.

Positive: 83 minutes
Negative: Kalvin injury. If it is at all significant, we could be in a world of hurt.
