The most impressive part of Lamela's day (that included a goal and a 9.8 match rating) was drawing the penalty in the box. Look at these moves.
Taken from r/coys, here are his stats:
quote: 11(!!!!) of our team's 19 dribbles. Next highest was Dembele, with 3. He was fouled seven times of 11 fouls received by our team. Four key passes (next highest Capoue/Eriksen with two each). Dispossessed exactly ZERO times-- especially impressive considering the 11 successful dribbles. 120 touches, the next highest number of touches was Vertonghen with 106, next highest non-defender was Dembele, with 98. Not to mention his goal and the penalty won.

Yup. Soldado is getting no service.
I'm tired of Townsend cracking shots and not finding the open pass. I kinda want to see him benched for a game or two but I still think he has a lot of potential. Paulinho and dembele don't need to be playing together in the middle it's not working.

I like Townsand, but there isn't a shot he doesn't like and if he doesn't learn to pass from outside the box he's going to continue to see two or three defenders around him. Our corners are pure crap and inconsistent. If seems we are playing scared in the attacking third like no one wants to mess up. Very frustrating.

Just to add something slightly positive because I think we're all pretty pissed after yesterday's game.
They did play a lot better in the second half and if Krul doesn't have a perfect game we probably win. (At least score)
I think (HOPE) we'll see Lamela start against city and we really can't play dembele and paulinho together. Sandro or capoue need to start. Eriksen is the better playmaker I want him to get another start too.
It's gonna be a tough one against a city team that just lost.
