Here are the main problems with the team that I noticed during this match:
- We need to be more decisive on the ball, we often take too long and in the end, the shot/cross gets blocked.
- Our attack needs more creativity, can't just go for crosses after crosses. Something like that quick free kick from Thiago for Lewy but in open play. I thought that Coutinho should have came on in the second half because he has that creativity and can make a chance out of nowhere.
- We should also try to play more direct football, not always by the sides. Maybe we will have less chances but when they come, it would be more effective than just crosses.
- Finishing. We had 40 shots in the last 2 games and only scored 2. Lewy had quite a few chances this game but I wouldn't blame him, he went for pretty difficult techniques and came very close. Even our goal was a mistake by Sommer.
- Midfield has to have more control like we had in the first half. Thiago hasn't been on form this season and lost the ball quite a few times recently, I think we should get a player like Kroos (not him obviously) to play alongside Thiago.
- Defence has to have better marking especially during set pieces.
- We should play a lower back line so that we won't be as vulnerable to pace in behind. Luckily 3 of our 4 defenders (Davies, Kimmich and Alaba) were fast, but they aren't permanent as Sule and Lucas will return.
There are probably more issues but this is what I can think of at the moment, is there anything you would add to this list? Will do a review on individual players in my next post coming tomorrow.
