Grealish is so lackadaisical with so many of his touches its infuriating 

Of all the players to criticise...

He’s been our best player. Wingers and striker all poor. But we knew we didn’t have enough when the window shut.

Guilbert needs to stop bombing forward when Jota is covered by two/three players. Jota got no passing options. And there's no cover if/when he loses it. Its going to cost us eventually, nearly did all ready. 

We should look to exploit the gaps in midfield when they  cover Jota.  

 

? That's because fred gives him an option and every time he has refused it and given the ball away. Looks very off pace tonight.

It's also so telegraphed, i mean ya know it's coming.

That part doesn't matter, because he still drags defenders with him, but he really needs to choose his moments better. It was such a bad decision towards the end of the half when Jota had 2 defenders on him.

Think Jack is wasted playing as a central midfielder, we need to utilise his dribbling and ability to draw defenders. Really can't see it being too long until he plays out wide.

He hasn't. Not by a long shot. We haven't played well but Engels and McGinn are the only ones trying to get us to play front foot football

We have actually done better than I expected us to. We weren't overrun by them and have shown some attacking promise, but with slack passing thrown into mix. That said, so far, it is is a hundred times better than the Palace performance. We could just as easily win this as lose it. One or two of those slack passes have come from Nakamba, but I like his energy.

He’s been one our best players from an attacking perspective so probably.

I disagree with most of you regarding El-Ghazi. He didn't track back well, but he's vital going forward. The only one with any kind of speed in this team. 

I kinda of agree, but his attitude is just shit and we're better off playing with 11 men. I'd definately get Davis on for Jota if El Ghazi can be trusted to step up.

Are people really questioning Grealish in this game? Probs his best performance of the season imo.

I love Björn Engels. He's excellent.

So elegant and effortless defending. World class in the making.

He’s put over a couple of decent crosses. What has anyone don’t really. Really scrappy first half

Apart from an unbelievable cross that Wes should have scored from.

McGinn or Grealish are going off for Luiz second half. Neither of them have done anything major to warrant another 45 minutes of that with Luiz on the bench.

I must be watching a different game. I thought they were both full of energy / industry and looked like our most likely sources of danger.

An entertaining game for the neutral, which I know isn't a priority but it's a far cry from our last run in the Premier League.

Yeah I was thinking he was our standout player. 

Thought Marvelous did well

4.5 games in and it is clear it will definitely be a battle for survival this year. As another poster wrote, this is the type of game where we need to come away with points.
