I'm shocked how many people want Amartey off. Evans and Cags have had a much worse half than him.

Thing is, if we switch to a back 4 the other two are preferable to him despite how poor they've been.

Arguably been our best player 

I think Cags and Evans struggle in a back three. IT's harder to marshal the defence.

No Praet and no Maddison is a real problem, because without them Tielemans is really the only creative player on the side.  That's why you see all those hopeful long balls for Vardy or Barnes.  There's really no answer to that on the bench, but you may as well chuck Under and Kelechi on for Amartey and Perez, play with a back four and throw everything you have at them.

I'm feeling Mendy will be sent off and the game will be over.

Was thinking the same sadly. He's been OK today, nothing better or worse but can easily see him getting a 2nd yellow

LCFC is vulnerable when play with 3 central defenders in the back since Brendan Rogers applied it since the second half of the last season. Today, the CBs are not playing well either. However, Soyuncu protects the central left of the defense and he was were he was supposed to be. I dislike defensive players simply protecting space when there is no opponent and imminent danger in that their space, they should look to cover the path of the outside runner. Yes, Soyuncu should have been more aware of his surroundings but also Antonio was not stationary inside the box he run into the box from the far left and he should have been covered by the left full back. In the second goal, Soyuncu run from the central mid to the right of the field which was supposed to be protected by both Amartey and Evans. Both were slow to react.

Gotta stay positive! A few tweaks and we can be right back in this. It's not like we're being overrun here.

Trying hard to stay positive, but sadly we showed no urgency to score towards the end of the half and the longer this stays at 0-2 (or worse, more) the less likely it will be to get back in it.

Pérez is having a bad game but we need the option between midfield and attack so he needs to go there and bring under on out wide. Unfortunately with Maddison and Praet both out, there's no one else we can throw on to solve the issue.

It was such a stupid yellow card too. No need to dive in on the touchline, in their half, with no hope of winning the ball.
