We make no attempt to win the territory game which means Digne is rarely in crossing positions and James is getting touches deep in the middle third more often than the attacking third. And I don't think Benitez is going to be changing that any time soon. He loves sitting off.4-4-1-1 is a poor system especially if neither of the midfielders offer anything in terms of carrying the ball
They're definitely both better without being expected to carry the ball.I can't take another season of Doucoure and Allan.
Neither of them want the ball, when your entire midfield unit is better without the ball why is it a surprise we can't build up attacks ever.
Expecting it to be any different than last year with the same combination of back 6 players is ridiculous.
