Gazzaniga – Not loads to do, but did it well enough.
Foyth – Glides out of defence. Good game.
Sanchez – Quick and aggressive when we needed it. Good game.
Davies – Solid.
Aurier – Two goals, got up and down well, good night will do his confidence good.
KWP – Like Aurier, up and down well, involved in our attack a fair bit, solid game on his weaker side.
Skipp – 94 passes, 91%, two assists, one of the highest calibre, showing good vision and incision. Also loved the moment when he lost the ball, then hunted the guy down 20 yards and got it back. I thought his debut was one of the most impressive debuts Ive seen from any academy kid, tonight reinforced that for me. Poch said tonight something like “he plays with the maturity of a 30yo”. I concur. For an 18yo making his second start this was an outstanding performance. MOTM
Alli – First half seemed a little off key. Improved second half, especially after Marsh came on and he was given more license to get between the lines, in a role similar to that of Eriksen’s current remit. Decent game in the end, seeing a lot of ball, playing some nice stuff and getting a quality assist.
Moura – Flitted about as ever, did get a nice assist, but too often his erratic energy doesn’t quite deliver what a little bit of composure might.
Son – When this boy is hot, he’s hot and right now he’s f*cking hot.
Llorente – Scored a really classy hatrick. Great game.
Marsh – Industrious but composed. Good little cameo
Eyoma – Comfortable defending and bringing the ball out. Another nice little cameo.
Kane – I’ve read the theories, I just don’t buy them at all. I think it was absolutely crazy to risk an innocuous injury at this busy time, on a shitty pitch when we are 6-0 up in an FA Cup game.
We have loads of important games coming up and Son if away soon.
Just so the away fans get to see a 6-0 humiliation turn into a 7-0 one?
Come on…He was good though. Lovely finish.
