Arsenal 3-0 Newcastle United - 18/01/2021 - post match from p22


Recommended Posts

Didn't take long for Shelvey to become part of the defence.

Other than the odd Hollywood pass, he doesn't get much further that the halfway line.


Potentially related, but I used to do that when I played a horrible standard Saturday league. Always dropping too deep to get the ball, it’s probably something to do with Shelvey playing with no confidence and it’s easy and a safe option for him to do - further away from opposing midfield, more time. Also drags whole side deeper, as defence can get up.


Needs to show some balls stay and higher and get the ball when opposition is closer. Seems to have lost all his close control now though. Totally shot away as a PL player now
