Sorry, still can’t get how people think they looked ‘comfortable’.Maybe but goalkeeping and defending is part of the game and in the PL the quality of those is usually excellent and Brighton were excellent in those departments last night.
XG is important but I'm a little old fashioned as well, I thought we were well beaten and luck played no part in that. Brighton were by far the better team, offensively and defensively as well as getting their tactics spot on; yes they allowed us the ball in the 2nd half as they went into game management mode but they still looked comfortable.
We do have a lot of players out and whilst a few tactical/system changes would help in some games as we head to the end of 2021 with twenty PL points there is a lot to be happy about.
In the space of 10 minutes in the 2nd half, their keeper made 2 fantastic saves, they made an incredible clearance off the line, and we should have had a penalty.
By contrast, Fernández had 1 save to make in the 2nd half……
