    Me neither. Seems to be banking on some first touch magic which rarely appears.

    Why? Liverpool drew at Fulham.

    I’m going to take a punt that it has to do with the schedule coming up. He’ll be using a Theo for 90 here, and saving Moussa for 90 in the next. Possibly. I dunno.

    Yeah I know. But two points from 6 against relegation battlers isn't great.

    West Ham and Liverpool will be very tough too.

    We were solid, but uninventive which isn't that unexpected based on the injuries.

    Diallo and jwp big positives. Clean sheet and defensive work big positives. We march on

    Looking past the negativity, that’s 7 consecutive away games unbeaten, which is yet another PL record for us.

    And won 7-0 at Palace where we lost? Pointless comparing individual results really.

    Just think we need to find ways to win matches like this and Arsenal to keep pace.

    Diallo looks a good player. Jack stepped back in well (which probably scuppers Salisu’s chance).

    Most worryingly we’re only probably a game away from Lincoln calling for Ralph’s head.

    Still, an away point, and that’s 7 unbeaten on the road.

    Of course it’s not ideal, but that is very hard working and much improved Fulham team. Lookman is a real handful and we had three key players missing and had two goals disallowed.

    not a great display but not a disastrous result.

    Is what it is. Shame we haven't picked up a few more points, but is indicative of our squad size and injuries. Still solid.

    He did, no he didn't at least he had the goalkeeper at full stretch too. Patchy performance for a point anyway. Ralph has plenty to think about.

    Not sure on your last sentence really. We looked like a team with three very key players out.

    Draw was fair, we were probably marginally better but poorly organised up front to keep on giving away so many offsides.

    Would prefer Walcott and Adams up front going forward tbh.
