Hola PL 2019-20! European champions have arrived. We weren't just good, we were scary good, especially in that first half!!
Bobby was toying with them at times. Trent different than his preseason form and the full backs back to their best. Origi justifying why he deserved that contract extension and repayed the trust put in him. Just hope Alisson is fine
Perfect team to play against for the first game. Top of the table, chase on suckers lol:celebrating:
Okay, honest appraisal of this game: We played an offensively good game in the first half, but we all, or most of us anyway, saw that Norwich could easily have scored 1-3 goals in that half and we failed to dominate the half despite scoring 4. That is a worry against better opposition. Then on to the second half, in this half we were completely complacent, but actually dominated unlike the first half. We were terribly ineffective though, and Norwich created chances and managed indeed, to score a nice goal. In short, we lost the second half and won the first half in a very unconvincing manner.
This display was more than good enough to beat Norwich, and probably a few other teams as well, but this display should worry us, since our midfield and defence were defensively very weak today.
At the same time, I had a fantastic time watching the first half, it was nice on the eye despite the fact that we never dominated and Norwich should have scored (rather because of that it was extra entertaining) . But there is a massive amount of work to be done in training based on this game. It can only be better, so no reason to despair or anything like this. Still, this was a worry. Thankful for the 3 points though !
Great first half. Looked on the money. Poor 2nd, Trent again to blame for their goal. Looking suspect at the back so far he needs to up his game. Mo needs to pass more. If he did we could have scored another 2
A good win to start the season but not a great performance. Norwich caused us plenty of problems at the back and I think TAA struggled again tonight. The game was basically over at half time and it was noticeable that we had taken our foot off the gas. Don't think Norwich are going to give any of the big teams a lot of problems with their defence but a nice way to get back into the swing for the boys.
I ironically thought Norwich had a better first half than second. Some worries at the back and I would consider Matip. Henderson covering the right side helped more in the later stages of the 3rd and in the second.
