Watching the game yesterday it was refreshing to see us playing with more freedom now that relegation is all but now off the agenda.One of the problems though I think is with Zaha,Eze and Ayew in the same team we spend too much time dribbling with the ball in midfield areas and when the ball is lost we are immediately prone to counter attacks against our slow back four which was the case yesterday.I was constantly shouting at the telly yesterday to PASS the ball and get the ball up front quicker before their defence was set.Later in the game it was better when Wilf went out wide and started doing what he does best by taking on their right back going past him and crossing quickly.I think we need to let the ball do the work and improve the connection from midfield to our forwards and do the dribbling where it hurts in and around the opponents penalty area.

What we lack in midfield is pace. Luka and Jairo are good players but I don't think should be paired neither has that explosive pace.

We need a ball playing midfielder with a bit of pace.
