Reviewing each match and giving my quick thoughts on the good and bad aspects of our performance.
- Wonderful Hazard cameo
- Another good performance from Vini
- First clean sheet of the season
- Displayed great character to cope with the atmosphere and the opposition players’ desire to impress and cause an upset
- Tchouameni was class once again
- Kroos was quality in and out of possession
- Benzema’s injury is a major concern
- Set pieces are still poor
- Militao got substituted due to an injury concern
I can’t complain. Three points and a clean sheet married with a good team performance. Our next game is against Mallorca on Sunday which will be another good test for the boys. Hopefully Benzema and Militao recover soon and we continue our great start to the season.
