Open game at Wembley. Could be lots of goals here. Lloris may get back ache fishing the ball out of the net.
Ultimately we weren't too downhearted with the result. Sanchez and Davies looked a bit out of their depth in the first half, and god knows what Lloris was up to. But we rallied in the second half and tried to make a game of it. With four key players missing and up against the best team in the world most likely, it was always going to be tough to get any kind of result. It was nice to see Kane scoring a goal that was more like his old self, Lamela playing well once again, and Winks showed signs of what he's capable of in the second half. Those are the positives anyway.

I quite like having 5 at the back, but only works with bellerin really. it gives us some width which we lose with a back 4 and our normal front 6 who all want to play through the middle. Clearly not Emerys way though and will require some new personnel longer term

Indeed, the old 6 0 4 system, or even 4 1 1 1 1 1 1 which works so well. Comes from having 6 number 10s, and no wingers.
