On the upside maybe easier to get an Ajax ticket

Not really the defence though. All three goals have come from the midfield losing the ball cheaply and giving away two fee kicks and that counter.

I meant the last goal.

We overload which puts all our defenders out of position and then we end up all over the shop. Price we pay for the style of football though.

Van Hecke and Igor need to not be paired together again. Both big f***ing units but so slow and not mobile enough to cope with any sort of pace or movement. I know we're missing Dunk but not playing Webster for that little bit of experience was a huge mistake

We can't defend. We know that. We have at least 60% possession every game but still concede goals. This is going to happen. You can the keep the ball for 90% of the time, but if you give it away in dangerous situations and don't defend you're in trouble if you're not taking your chances. It's a big shame it's happened tonight.

No matter what the outcome RDZ got this wrong. This wasn’t the match to start a youngster and a debutant in centre defence. Not their fault but it’s showed.

Fati has been miles off it as well.

He’s also been let down by unusually poor performances from Estupinan and Mitoma.

Such a shame.
