Think he's lacking fitness, only just returned from a long layoff and played about an hour in the last gameI am fixating on Smalling, but christ watching him running back from that last set piece, what the hell has happened to him him physically? Know he has been injured a lot, but he is only 31.
We also see how we have improved in every area , when you compare those players to what we have today.Now I think we see how Lukaku, Smalling, Young, Darmian, Sanchez etc can do so well when this is the level of a decent team. You can only beat what's put in front of you, let's praise the team for a job well done but let's never play Europa again
