Our wingers, especially on the left are giving us nothing as an outlet so far.

Great run by Costa but his he is leaned into and his cross/ shot is easy pickings for the keeper.

Better

Though Ayling was lining up for a shot there, we look better now

Harrison is acres of room slips it to Dallas to cross, wrong decision.

It's the way we play/have played all season..See how the game unfolds first half while probing for weaknesses then making the HT tactical changes to exploit. First half goals are a bonus

We've seen us play like this a lot with or without Hernandez starting.

Ayling gives a very soft free kick in a very dangerous area

Not a lot to say about that 45, let's hope we have another decent second half

Need some composure out there, play Swansea at their own game and frustrate them further. Ayew, what a whinging tosser.

We'll do these lot.

agree with this.

Near the end of the 1st half when Ben White went on a run, he only did that because nobody had dropped to give him an option, huge space for someone to pick the ball up.

Pablo would have been there allowing Klich to be making a run further up the field, Roberts isnt a 10, plays to close to PB, creates an imbalance in midfield and a lack of control., hopefully he will learn but we need Pablo now.

Good game as two similar sides cancel themselves out a bit, but we have our Ayew yet to feature. Thought we shaded it and White leads the MOTM race
