Nice win. Could have gone either way really. The first half was really poor I thought, the second a lot better (still not spectacular). Overall still a lot to improve. We need to be better at using the midfield. The ball too often bypasses the midfielder either with our without the ball. We need to have the skilled players have the ball more, and the rest make runs. We've been too used to only Suso being capable of that, because Hakan, Jack, Biglia, Kessié, etc rare even try through passes.
Donna was great (even if he had his scary moments as always).
Conti was good when he came in and his assist was decisive, and Abate does not disappoint as CB again.
Bakayoko really imposing presence in the middle. I though Paquetá made some mistakes and missed a clear header, but looks extremely promising overall, very active, amazing skills, good understanding with Suso already, and almost scored a beauty and assisted another. Hakan as mezzala a bit better than as LW, but still not a lot from him. Either Mauri or Jack when they come back seem like better options better, not to mention Kessié and maybe Bakayoko when Biglia returns. Mauri did very well in the second goal, before Cutrone's pass.
Borini almost scored a great goal from a Paquetá pass, great save from Radu but corner not given. Also very generous with his running as always, as was Cutrone, who also gave a great assist but was quiet in their box. Great goal by Suso, who was as always creating danger but lacked a bit of delivery now and then.
