I think we're doing well so far as a team definitely. It's just frustrating watching Joselu fail to control the ball on a regular basis.

Not seen too many complaining to be fair. We've clearly set out to stifle and, so far, we are doing a very good job of it.

I feel for Joselu in the sense that he has a pretty thankless task today, but it is frustrating to see how careless he is with the ball.

Joselu would make this game that 5% more bearable if he could just control or hold the ball up

f*** sake. Again it all came from Joselu trying to play a stupid pass in midfield and needlessly giving it away.
