halftime thoughts

  • Ozil’s passing has been extremely and uncharacteristically inaccurate, to the frustration of his teammates
  • The other forwards have seen so little of the ball that it’s hard to judge them
  • Xhaka and Bellerin have been terribly careless with the ball, which you really can’t afford against this City side
  • Guendouzi has been shaky at times but also active and resourceful — I think he’s gonna be great
  • Centerbacks have been a step slow
  • Cech has been excellent

Overall, they’re luck to be down only one goal. ⚽️
