Some great football early on, but as soon as they scored the whole dynamic changed. Frank once again out coached 2nd half.... Arteta, Jose to name but two. What does Tomori have to do to get a game?.. if Mount had a leg in plaster he would still start... why play Kepa yesterday?
The big concern is Frank isn't learning. Living in Derby, the Rams were the same defensively when he was here, and no difference last season or this.
Frank, it's all very well saying the goal before half time boosted them, do something about it. Where are the midfield options? To me, this wasn't the game to bring on Ziyech.
I want to focus on that 20 minute first half spell, but in reality if the game was 5 minutes longer, they would have won.

Its frustrating at the back and if Silva is the answer then whats the long term question. Kepa has a mistake in him, every game.

I thought there were clear signs of things to come, from an attacking sense. The mistakes are coming from players he will know need replacing. not so much Zouma but Kepa has to go. When the time comes...Rudiger, Christensen and Zouma (possibly) will be gone. There was only so much business he could do in one window and with the exits of Willian and Pedro it was important he addressed those holes first of all.

Re Mount...I think Frank is showing too much faith in him tbh. I also think we waste Kante...if we want Kante to play where we play him then we can improve on Kante...sell.

Work in progress...100% behind Frank Lampard...who is also work in progress.
