Nobody played more bad passes than Cesc tonight - but then nobody played more good passes either. 101 passes in total 17 bad ones. Too many passes from Cesc seemed to go astray but the nearest to him only made a little over 75% of the number of passes. Only 4 shots on target given the possession and territorial advantage is a poor return though 5 blocked shots indicates the success Fenerbahce had in denying space in the area. The greatest threat came from RvP with 6 attempts but only one on target. Next in line was Nasri with 3 attempts again with one on target. A lot of effort from everyone but only RvP seemed capable of producing any guile to go with his prodigious work rate. Great work rate too from Denilson who tackled well and won a lot of the ball. Also positive hour from Ramsay who didn't waste the ball and tried to do something with it when in possession. Bound to be looked upon as disappointment given the result in Turkey though had the results been the other way around, 0-0 away and 5-2 at home, most would be feeling a little more content with the same number of points.

Nobody is more wasteful than RVP and Bendtler.

Some good performances from Djorrou Who won every header, Ramsey who was finding space like a mini Cesc and is incredibly comfortable on the ball and Denilson who is really improving all aspects of his game (workrate, Positional sense and distribution). Saturday of course will be very different but I would play the same line up and replace RVP with Vela or if fit Walcott and bring in Sagna for Sylvestre.

You both serious about Van persie? How many van chances does van persie create for himself? He makes chances from little and was again the best player on the pitch tonight. Also how can only 1 shot be on target when i saw 3 saves made of his shots.

in fairness, I think iceman is saying he should be replaced by Vela because he is not allowed to play the next game

It could be a rout but personally I don't think we'll find it that easy.
