Lindstrøm has more speed and is more press resistant than Eriksen, though he is not as good a passer. Lindstrøm is very good in a 10 role but horrible on the wing where Hjulmand usually puts him.
Jesper Lindstrøm who is struggling getting minutes for Napoli? He isn't in great form for about a year know I think, so I'm a bit surprised that he should be better than Eriksen (but of course I believe you as you clearly are more invested in them).

Manchester Utd never lose, just run out of time
Who was playing as striker if he wasn’t?
Martial and Wout started almost all of those games up front with Rashford on the left. However, in most of them we'd actually subbed them off and Rashford had moved upfront before he scored. Which from memory was the opposite of what had happened earlier in the season, when he started at striker but didn't score until we moved him out wide.

He isnt better but he is faster, and actually press resistant which we will need against Slovenia. I dont think the Napoli playstyle fits him and I was surprised by the move to be honest.

Wind is in the form of his life at the moment and basically scoring goals for fun, but he is usually put behind Højlund when they both play which kind of works against both of them. Its better when we play with 1 or the other instead of both.
So the synergy of the team is better this way. Hope that makes sense.
I just realised I didn’t reply the other day. It worked out fine for Denmark as they have more quality overall, but press resistance against Slovenia is not something that is need. They play 442 and sit deep, countering with Sesko, like United do with Hojlund.

That game was crying out for some quality and would have been much easier with Eriksen creating.

When you've got that many injuries or instances of issues it goes beyond bad luck. Basic stats

Onana? Ffs. I don't think we actually bought that Turkish keeper for sporting reasons, if we are to go by highlight videos on YT. Butterfingers. Is Heaton fit?

Mainoo, Kambwala, Bayindir, Pellistri, Fish, Mejbri, all to register some minutes on the pitch then. The cracks were starting to show early this season, and the reality of the situation is unfolding further.

Might aswell call Scholesy out of retirement while he's still in his 40s.

I have to disagree completely. We played some of the best we have played in this qualifier. Slovenia tried to play with a higher press but we played around it and where excellent in possession, forcing them back.

Bayindir needs a game anyway so we can see what he's like. Might as well be in a no stakes guaranteed-to-lose game like away at Everton.

You thought Slovenia tried to press high? :nervous:
