Pretty decent first half. Got the early goal as with Stoke, and managed to hold onto the lead until half time. We've got to be prepared for the onslaught early in the second half and try to get a second I feel.
Really need to watch ourselves around the box. It's clear they're not afraid to throw themselves to the ground over the slightest of touches, and I feel the ref is going to give them a few decisions after disallowing their goal.
We need to definitely get our foot on the ball in the second half, being a bit over-run in midfield and Rondon looking a bit isolated. Still, we look good value on the break, and if we defend well can see us taking the 3 points. Feel their only chance of scoring is if we make a mistake or give them a penalty/freekick around the edge of the box. They've got no height whatsoever up front so they are going to be looking to play their way through us, rather than lumping balls forward. We need to be patient, keep our shape, and look to get them on the break. A couple of times their fullbacks have been caught up field, and Fonte has been getting forward a lot too. We should look to exploit that second half.
