Long Time Nemesis™
- Sep 17, 2012
A lot of talk about us "struggling" recently but I actually thought we were really good today in our general play but around the penalty area we couldn't get a clear chance against the 2nd best defence in the league.
The only criticism I would have is that around the 35-40 minute mark we looked like we were so desperate to score that we making tackles where we couldn't get the ball and that gave Leicester the opportunity to break the game up. Then we went and scored a minute later.
Leicester scored with essentially their only real chance and it was a well worked move in fairness.
Salah was a little off the pace again but still a constant threat that Leicester were clearly concerned about - he spent most of the game with half his shirt in Chilwell or Soyuncu's fists.
Quoting for truth.Only in terms of the narrative in our own heads that we were going to fuck it up.
That was their only shot on target, and second shot in total - the other being the half volley from 25 yards.
It isn't like they were pressuring us and earned a goal from it, they hit us with a slick move and scored during a game we completely dominated and should have put away sooner with some more clinical finishing. If Bayern Munich had taken our shots for us we would have won 7-1.
