Thought he had some great moments as usual but also felt like he was the most wasteful with the ball he’d been since Brighton away. I think it was all

of the team tonight though, we just seemed to lose our composure a lot on the ball. We were clearly trying to move it quicker than usual but it led to a lot of turnovers

Came alive with some movement ahead of him. He doesn’t get enough from Joelinton and Wilson, although the game did open up a lot once they were behind. He needs players darting about for him like Miggy does.

Thought that was slightly understandable given the situation, Murphy was probably just expecting to keep possession and play it safe. Great ball though.

It might just be because of the ridiculously high bar he has set. But I thought he was below his usual standards. 
 

Probably being harsh and expecting too much, mind. As his numbers were good and Ol Don on commentary was constantly praising him. 
 

I thought Schar, Pope, Almiron and Trippier were all more deserving of MOTM.

After every game there is a comment like this about Bruno😃

He looked loads better once Joelinton moved in to the middle

Thought Trippier was poor by his own incredibly high standards. Gave the ball away a few times which is not like him. The huge majority of our attacking comes down that right hand side

Yeah, it was a ball for Willock with Murphy on the pitch!

I’m with you here. As big @Rich put it, he came alive after ASM and Isak came on, but before that I felt as he was subpar. Lost possession a lot with weak misplaced passes. Very surprised he got motm.

He played an inverse game to Trippier, who I thought had a cracking first half and a poor second. Bruno was poor, by his own high standards, in the first half but definitely grew into it and improved later on.

 

He seems to need a bit of rattling to produce his best sometimes, think Alcaraz and Lyanco getting into him did us no harm at all.

 

I was somewhat tongue-in-cheek about it being Matteo's fault, but I don't think he's produced a truly world-class performance for some time now.

Last night, he lost the ball a bit (dodgy pitch) but his defensive work was outrageous, kept & took the ball in lots of high-pressure situations, and played some absolutely fantastic passes (even in the first half). I think we're at the point with him now where we notice more of the bad than the good because he so often makes the right choice.
