Yesterday's performance

Another win, another good performance, clean sheet and a couple of goals for pulisic and Tammy. Could quiet easily have been more but I'll happily take 2 nil against a Palace side who usually cause us problems. Just a couple of observations

How many times does kepa have to play us into trouble before he change his tune. The amount of times he holds onto the ball too long when attackers are bearing down on him or gives it to players who clearly don't want the ball. I'm all for playing out from the back but he needs to chose when to do this alot better going forward.

What a performance from reece James, deserved a start after changing the game midweek and followed it up with a MOTM performance. He kept a player who usually causes us no end of problems very quiet today and whipped in a couple of very dangerous balls. You can see the potential there in every aspect of his game, what a player he could be.

Kovacic looks like a different player than the one who arrived from Madrid a season ago. Really found his stride with us and in the absence of jorginho he orcistrating the match from deep.

Mount has looked a little off the pace recently and looks to me like he could do with a rest, but the way he presses is so important to the team, the odd game he's missed we look like a different side. He's constantly hounding the opposition and pushing the team forward. And with pulisic in the side we now have another player with that same intensity.

I think kepa biggest weakness in his CFC career is having weak wrists on occasion. In terms of playing out I think he’s fantastic at it and not really a worry for me.

Same as mount, he had a knock midweek but was still good yesterday. Not a worry again for me.

We are performing well as a team, mount, willy, pulisic and Tammy can come in and out of games at times but we know as a team they are all working together and it’s a joy to see. We’ve had a decent run of fixtures, so will be good to see how we react with the tests to come.

This run has all been done while missing our best midfielder, our best defender and several other key parts so it’s been a fantastic run.

Really impressed with how Frank has bedded in the youngsters. Must be frustrating for you lot after years of throwing this talent away.
Be interesting to see what happens if your appeal goes through and funds are again available.

Very pleased with the all round performance yesterday,Willy played like a captain,but,I agreea about Kepa, he gives me the heebe jieebees when he's playing out of defense,just hope the Petr is coaching him on that.

This.

He's a good modern day keeper, sweeps well and good with his feet, but I still don't see an exceptional save in him. He's one of those solid keepers that'll require a finish of high quality to beat him, but by the same token odds are it will beat him..... that next level shot stopping aspect of his game hasn't really improved much.

Although he can be good playing it out this season he’s made 4-5 mistakes playing it out and many more ‘shaky’ moments. Two alone yesterday

Yesterday is close to being what i consider our best team. Just Rudiger missing. Not ignoring RLC who’s unfit

Thought the same to be honest. Not far away from our best team. I think our biggest problem will be fitting everybody in and keeping the rest of them happy.

Kepa is an ok GK. But for £75m you kind of expect him to be world class at something.

James did well yesterday. Still needs to improve his decision making which will obviously come with more game time.

Zaha just had a bad game yesterday. So many poor passes from him and I still remember him failing to control the ball and it rolling out of play. Haven’t seen him play this badly before.

Yesterday was our best defensive performance of the season. Other then that free kick chance that shouldn’t have been a free kick they never got close to our goal.
