    I guess you could teach others the role, but he plays DM, CB and RWB in one game for us - it's not so much the physical/technical ability to do that, it's the tactical understanding of when to do it

    Played well and first game in a while I've enjoyed watching - has to be said that we weren't challenged an awful lot but all down to the aggression in the back 2 and Rodri.

    No changes needed for the weekends game, just need to keep a bit of momentum and performances and see where we end up at the start of the year.

    That was much more like it! with the caveat that Burnley were awful (but our possession game made them awful) that was one of the better performances this season.

    I was hugely critical of Gabreil Jesus at weekend having said he needs to step up more if he wants to establish himself - thats the level of performance that he needs on a regular basis - he now has a chance in a derby to solidify it more.

    Rodri - Im hoping that settles the argument about who is better in that position. The difference between him and Gundogan is chalk and cheese in every respect (even forgetting the goal he is far superior)

    Angelino - should start the derby over Mendy - he should be the first chice left back on current form.

    KDB finally looks like he is getting to 100%

    B. Silva - after being probably one of the top performers last season he has struggled but tonight he started to show what he was last season.

    Passing and movement off the ball was so much better, crisp and clinical

    Excellent performance all around. We just need to maintain that over the winter until we get Laporte back and then we can see what will happen.

    Loved Rodri’s post match comments.

    Total belief we can win the title until maths say otherwise.

    Eccles of course! Just Eccles!!
    What a great interview with Rodders there. No hesitation, “we can win the league”.

    I agree with the people who are saying how unbiased the coverage has been from Amazon. Balanced views without snide remarks.

    Needs Bernado inside & Marhrez out wide. They both switch so much, which causes defences headaches, and as you say, allows Mahrez to thrive.

    Kdb higher up the pitch, Rodrigo in for gundy and a left back who has a brain. That was the difference compared to the weekend.
