No Silva or Sane of course, thanks to the recent kickings..

A little worrying, as Burnley won't be a push over, but we should have enough here.

And only 6 players on the bench.

Think peps making a point with the 6 subs and maybe being a bit dramatic, makes us look a bit short of first team experience on the bench.

Going well, but it should be 0-2 by now.

Not carving out quite enough chances for my liking. I'd like to see a little less patience and a little more urgency bringing the ball out of the back.

We need to be more deadly in the big games. We let too many decent opportunities pass.

What the fuck is going on? Our game has fallen apart these last 10 minutes. Probably gifted them a point now. Absolute shit.

Miss good chances like we have done and we’ll always be vulnerable.

We’re short upfront and Pep reckons Jesus is 5-6 weeks away! Where did that come from?

Inexplicable to me where we did not strengthen the attack in Jan.

That attack we put out was strong enough. Two really good chances wasted in the first half, and Sterling's appalling miss in the second. And then to make matters worse we lost the plot across the back. Too slow, too lateral. Kompany looked knacked for the last 15 minutes - probably should have been subbed. We only won about one defensive header in every three, and suddenly no one could clear the ball properly. Walker is a liability sometimes.

Piss poor that. We were poor in that second half. Walker shouldn't be letting that guy finish like that at the far post. Gundogs was shite. Sterling wants shooting. But it was a team effort and collectively we let them stay in the game.

When a draw away to Burnley feels like a painful loss, you know all is good.

Strong enough yes, but not today and that's my point. We have nothing to rotate with when it doesn't fire.

We've got a league cup final, arsenal again in the PL, Chelsea, 2 champions league games, FA cup tie, not to mention the other PL games coming up in the next 7 weeks and the attack we put out today is all we have to use during that time.

A poor performance, Burnley stepped it up for a while in the second half and we could not cope. Dinho is a really important player for us. But, he is not getting any younger, has played virtually every game. He needs competition for the place and rotation. Sterling, for all the plus points can f*ck it up in front of goal.
We know the point Pep was making with the six subs, but did that play a part? Dyke could tell his players there is little to fear from the bench and an under 21 not getting closer to the first team.

Gundog, maybe Delph as well, I wont count Toure. Pep doesnt seem keen though. The six subs, a dig at the buying policy as well?
