From the highlights it look like Kolasinac was getting high up the pitch an unusual amount for a CB, no? Poor from Xhaka on the pass but tbh ElNeny is at just as much fault there for me, not sure what he was doing giving a first touch layoff to Xhaka there... just hiding and passing the buck, really.
Since I didn't get the thread right the first time I'll say it again (), it's a bit bothersome to me that Iwobi after having a nice pre-season doesn't start over Welbeck in a position which is much more suited to Iwobi than to Welbeck. If Welbeck is also ahead of him in the pecking order, when is the kid going to get minutes other than in the Europa League?
That said, from the highlights Welbeck looked alright, you all will tell me if that's true or not I hope.
