With all the talk about some of the players suffering from nerves yesterday and needing to improve, the same challenge probably also applies to Nuno after his first game in the PL. We had 45 minutes against 10 men and yet we often seemed more concerned about keeping possession in our own half rather than seizing the initiative to force a win. Last season our 3 at the back and attacking wing backs caught a lot of Championship managers out as they didn’t know how to deal with the formation. The World Cup has changed that and PL teams won’t be caught out as much by last seasons tactic of slow build up and 50 yard diagonal balls from Coady and Neves. Everton showed that keeping tight on our wing backs means that Jota and Costa are then starved of possession and we become easy to defend against. We have no real attacking movement in the centre of the park and yesterday saw no width to the attack on the left until Vinagre came on. Personally I think Nuno should have changed it around much earlier and brought Vinagre and MGW on to run at the team that was a man short. Nuno has done no wrong so far, but the challenge he now faces in the next month is to show that he can out think smart managers like Puel and Pep and Mourinho, in the same way that he did against some of the tactical dinosaurs we saw in the Championship last season. Having Traore and Cav back will help, but as with the players, Nuno also needs to show that he can step up and lead us forward against the big boys.
