Well I expected us to run riot last night, I’d gone for a 5,6 or 7 nil win so to say im disappointed is an understatement.

Pitch was fine but our passing lacked accuracy and we lost possession too often. Too many players were carried in my opinion but credit to Sutton for making us work for the victory.

I’ll be expecting a lot better when we host Lincoln in the next round. Back at the Emirates and with a chance to head into a Semi Final of the Cup I’ll be expecting us to put that game to bed early.

Ospina – Flapped at everything. Almost gave away a goal by playing out directly to their onrushing midfielder

Gabriel – Looked one paced, had a torrid time against Biamou and Gomis. Found himself isolated too often.

Mustafi – Expected him to be a stand out performer however looked to go through the motions.

Holding – Didn’t do too badly. However needs to stick to the job in hand, wonders around and is indecisive at times.

Monreal – Looked a lot better going forward than he did defensively. Final ball left a lot to be desired.

 

Elneny – Played for around 35 minutes before picking up a knock. Didn’t offer much and passing was woeful.

Ox – Probably our best player when he came on. Looked like he wanted to impress. A bit more quality on the ball and we would have had a couple more goals.

Xhaka – Awful, didn’t offer anything of note. Kept his passes very short which kept his pass success rate up but had nothing moving forward

Adelaide – Didn’t get on the ball enough, was pretty much a passenger for most of the game and lost the ball far too much.

 

Iwobi – Could have put a yellow shirt on last night, woeful performance and offered absolutely nothing. Wouldn’t look at of place in the National League.

Perez – Goal was a little fortunate but he put the work in. Pass success rate of 69% isn’t good enough against this opposition. 3 shots in 90 minutes was not good enough either.

Walcott – Should have taken this game by the scruff of the neck. Probably deserved a second goal but for Ox’s poor pass but generally put a shift in.

 

15 Shots on – 4 on Target
