It was our best performance of the season.
Bleh, we'll agree to disagree. I thought our defense was miserably horrid compared to the other matches we've played. It seems like most of the goals we've conceded have been better than the ones today. We were pretty poor with our completion rate in the first 25 minutes (admittedly, it picked up considerably). Norwich also probably had more legitimate scoring chances than any other team we've played this season.
Tons of chances created, Gerrard was on fire (created 5 chances on his own). Suarez was on another level that we haven't seen so far, and Sterling eventually settled in a bit later in the match.
I'll give you this. Offensively, we set the world on fire like we haven't seen in a very long time.
The back line still has problems though, and that is very concerning. The hole between Allen and the defense also has me worried. Lucas can't come back soon enough.
This is more what I was referring to. The defense MUST improve. It was worse today than I can remember.
In hindsight, I'll say it was a game of two thirds. The attacking third - our best game of the season. The defensive third - by far our worst. I guess being a person who plays CB and fullback, I notice that first and foremost, hence why I thought it was our worst of the season.
