The full backs are always going to look better in a 4 -5 -1 than a 4 - 4 - 2 as they are able to get forward knowing there is more cover. Most of our attacks came down the right and both of them played well and linked up well.
Anelka played well with his link up play but is still a bit rusty and will convert in due course but for now he is the engine of the team
Olsson needs a special mention for keeping his discipline in terms of not trying to make Hollywood passes.
Malumbu and Morgan were our best players by a mile - mobile, athletic and hungry.
For the first time in ages we didn't wait for the team to come onto us to attack - we played it around and sought out gaps. That's because we bossed the midfield.
Our depth of squad is encouraging - think about who wasn't there - long, vydra, brunt, dorrans.
Good to give berahino some air time - 5 mins here and there is better given to a prospect than someone like rosenburg.
