    Think this chart is more telling. Basically we either not fit enough or we need to better manage our 1st half expenditure. Because as it is this is a massive issue that's really biting us in the arse.

    We have no physical power in the midfield, and also little technical ability...so we can’t sustain a high press for long, but we also can’t keep the ball for long periods...basically we have the worst midfield in the league :lol:

    I think the lack of technical and passing ability is the main one. No team presses for +70 mins, at some point you're going to need to retain the ball. Even Liverpool do it.

    Defensively we are somewhat better but offensively we are not clicking and the players really don't know what to do in the final third.
    Feels like we are trying to open a lock with the wrong key almost every game and watching us play is like groundhog day. The inability to kill off games are costing us.

    Against Bournemouth in the FA Cup this weekend I hope we can experiment a bit without Özil and Xhaka. I really really want to know what a midfield of
    would look like with Arteta's new tactics and energy. We wouldn't get Xhaka's defensive work as a LCB, or Özil's occasional good through ball; but it should be capable of more forward drive than we are currently seeing.
