AM, where Willock, a child, would be a safer bet
Emery might've taken your advice judging by the lineup.
Don’t understand why Emery had Torreira has the furthest midfielder up the pitch. He is a 6 and only a 6, it would have made more sense to play Willock or Cellabos.
The Uruguayan Verratti
Cartel Jay Spearing
He had little influence in the game as a result. Baffling decision IMO. I don't think he performed well regardless though
Good performance today, winning possesion on numerous occasions, hard working, looking good technically on the ball whilst playing at a fast tempo. I was gutted when they took him of instead of Xhaka.
Has to play as the deepest midfielder, but he is too short for Emery.
Then play chambers as dm he spent last season as a dm and is a better dm than xhaka
Didn't put foot wrong today he was good when we pressed he need to change his boots slipping tio much
lightweight midget. Won't work in the PL.
What’s Xhaka then? Poundland Rabiot?
Emery's midfield system is a deep lying playmaker with 2 other midfielders playing in front, and Torreira can't be that deep lying playmaker. Emery wants to turn Torreira into a Kante, someone who is able to win the ball up the pitch. Like Ramsey did last season. Problem is that Torreira simply isn't on Kante's level, or even Ramsey's level for that matter.
Enjoyed him last night. Love the fight he adds.
People underrate Kante’s quickness. He can cover the ground way more than most midfielders so it makes sense for him to be higher up the pitch. I don’t get Emery at all.
He is not a box to box player just play him in the hole.
Still don't think he's ever been as good for us as he was in the first few months of joining.
Cause this is Emery logic, defend from the front. Probably had some sick thought like Torreira winning back the ball high up the pitch. Spanish Mourinho spends more time thinking about what we do when we don’t have the ball instead of when we do have it.
