Your right....here he is readying the x ray
Not sure that's correct. Against Chelsea away a more accomplished defender might prove to be a positive result.
Mendy lined him up for the foul...saw it coming a mile away, because he had already decided he wasn't going to chase him...and did himself. He can have no complaints, even though I feel bad for him and us.
Here's hoping it is nothing more than a sprain and after a brief rehab he will be back to marauding down the wing. Between now and then, Pep will have to model the team around our strengths and blunting the opposition from even trying to get down the right wing. The fix MAY be to move Danilo to the left side of a three, with Otamendi on the right of the three, with Delph (or even Sané!) in the "left back" position. This allows Danilo to cover the position, doesn't expose Ota to a marauding midfielder/winger/forward down the right if Delph or Sané gets caught upfield.
The key is to control the ball for 2/3 to 3/4 of the game and win it back quickly when we lose it, thus not exposing anyone at the back. When that breaks down, we need to collapse, organize and defend the inevitable occasional attacks. Sounds simple, and is, except the other team is trying everything to stop you from doing it!
If a Wizard is required, he had no need to venture off to Spain
Hopefully only a short time out. Don't want us going to 5 at the back if he is out for a while though.
How confident are you all with Danilo as left back for the next few months?
Pep says he is being seen tomorrow then we will know
