But we are past making excuses now. His confidence is shot. He's the kind that doesn't show it on his face but his actions say a lot -such as when he took over the penalty against Luka.

It still remains the club's fault that we have so few alternative attacking player options and our style still relies basically on either Wilf running past players or Benteke nutting the ball. Another striker and an AM worth talking about. That was all we needed. Hardly rocket science. In a way, we would have done both ourselves and Benteke a favour by dropping him at some point this season but the club made that impossible.
Creating chances is not the issue we've mostly been creating enough under Hodgson. Defending/goal keeping is and accuracy in front of the net is. We had sixteen odd shots at Everton. Most of them off target and we conceded three of Evertons five on target. How does an AM help that? We can't get the bloody basics right and baring a few little spells in the last five years it has been a perennial issue.
