Default Jangle, revisiting Rio and Vidic.

A keeper should take control of his six yards box, being able to use his hands(fully stretched gives him height advantage over the tallest opponent)and referees tend to gift him special protection there.
Similarly, the aforementioned pair of former defenders took control of the box(in their case the entire 18), both normally well positioned to counter the greatest threat.
THAT and other things made me question the abilities of Lindelof and MaGuire.I often asked myself where they are if, incidents after incidents, we see Pogba and Wan Bissaka called upon to make the crucial tackle.
Bailly is a darn good defender, he was a Professor today.
Yeah, it is another mention of Mensah,he makes amend on getting a second bite at the apple, I have not seen anyone as agile and swift like him at back pedaling and robbing an opponent of a scoring opportunities.
Please have an open mind about Mensah figuring, I like players because of unique attributes.

We are still stuck in first gear yet the EPL is ours to lose, if we become a little better(scoring at will)surely we will win.

Reasoning on the perch.
