    Mendy
    Azpi Silva Rudiger
    CHO Gilmour Kovacic Alonso
    Mount Giroud Werner

    subs Zouma James Kante Chilwell Havertz Anjorin
    Please no Pulisic, Ziyech or Jorginho, all pretenders.

    Best team, but not good enough to beat Atletico.
    Tuchel has not done enough to improve this team , is now upsetting players, and looks as lost as Frank when it comes to increasing scoring .

    10 minutes in and I thought we were going to be crushed, gradually cut out the mistakes and eventually worthy winners. Not going to analyse it too much just glad we got the result that we deserved on the night. If we had a true striker we would be a real force. On a side note if Joao Felix is worth 100mil Mount is worth 200mil easy. Take a bow Rylan superb goal.

    Only thought is that Atletico were overated, they are certainly better than us technically with touch and passing, but strangely seem to hold little threat.
    We won through determination and effort, despite some pretty ordinary passing and giving the ball away too much. I was concerned with the back 4, Alonso has a poor record as left back, Rudiger makes mistakes and Christensen is dodgy but they all did OK, apart from being too slow in getting the ball forward. We won this in midfield Jorginho was actually pretty good, Kovacic 2nd half especially caused problems, Mount and CHO were non stop, Werner a threat despite his awful touch and passing. Giroud just did what he's there for with almost his only chance, what perfect technique. Great result and effort, a decent step up the latter of improvement. Joao Felix does look some way behind Mount, who only needs to add more goals to be worth a fortune.

    What game were you watching CP? We played a back 3 not back 4 and Alonso was wing back not left back

    I think Tuchel is the perfect manager to deal with Simeone tbh.

    Diego gets Atleti playing in a very emotional and physical way, which has served them well in the league. Someone like Tuchel who is focused on the tactics, stats and such can kill the game and kill Atleti's momentum.

    they'll come roaring into the second leg though, it's gonna be tough.

    The line up announced on Fox sport here showed us starting a back 4, at 5am have to say I actually didn't notice we lined up with 3 !!!

    Fair enough.

    How can Fox get that so wrong when Tuchel has played three at the back every game

    Probably half asleep like I was !!!!!! Although Fox uses the Sky feed, the production is local. I didn't pick it up all game, how embarrassing is that !!!!. Still, we well deserved the points and there were quite a few positives in the game.
