I don't know. I was amazed King opted to stay on his feet
the sort of challenge that most players will use as an opportunity dive and roll around on the ground in faux agony in attempt to get a player red carded.
Richarlison was excellent in that passage of play, apart from the tackle. If he'd just stayed on his feet and stayed with king.
If Coleman still had Walcott in front of him we could be in all sorts of shit.
attempting 11 passes in the final third. Completing 7 of them.
He made and completed the most number of passes in the game. 52/59
He recovered the ball 9 times. Only Josh King beat him on that stat (10)
He actually only made 15 backward passes in the game. The vast majority of his passes were forward (26/31)
What was interesting was his tackles. He attempted 6 and only made 3. But all of these came down our right hand side, none in the middle. Richarlison attempted the most tackles in the game (6/9), 6 coming down the right.
Another 90 minutes of morgan schneiderlin!!
They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.
