Seen it so often, a team goes three up and think job done after 60. Other teams scores anytime before the 80th min then anything can happen in the last 10 and you're suddenly on the back foot ... so frustrating. Surely we'd have learned this by now. Still, a good result and as has been said, a good excuse to get the teeth into the evaluation of the performance and character a bit there.
we have been brittle all season losing leads in away games against Arsenal Liverpool Leicester Everton when in control of games. This game was similar except that until the last 20mins W Ham were the worst side we have played all season. There is a job to be done to build confidence and organise us. Jose does know though that he has an attack that is the best around so if he continues to let them play we will win more games than not

Poch saying new players need 6 months to get fit. Looking at us the last 25 minutes today. The problem is with our existing players

Surprised Jose didn't leave the substitutions until the last minute and injury time. I guess he wanted to involve both Moussa and Christian.

Jesus christ, no need for that mate. Not like I've been throwing shit around for the entire game is it? Just upset we gave away 2 late goals. Same emotions you've shown for the win and the team.
Yes I’m all for constructive criticism but calling it a ‘Shambles’ was simply not right.

He'll be fuming about those two goals, as would I be. The team will be too. But we won the game. He's been in the job 4 days. Let's move on and tighten up that defence!
100% agree, this is where he will make the difference because the players will be buzzing about the win (quite rightly so) but Mourinho will make it clear that losing those two goals is not acceptable# winning mentality

I thought we were looking tired and that was the problem. Mourinho just came out and said so actually.

Eriksen will still be an asset offensively when we're cruising and doin good but the guy can't seem to perform when we're pressured and on the back foot. He doesn't seem to have the best mentality. still think he's one of the best when he can perform but way too inconsistent.
He is a good player, but at the minute he seems to need 11 team mates around him on the pitch

They worked their arses off too. Kane ran the most out of our players, Dier second most.

West Ham went direct to bypass our midfield. Davies getting injured hurt us because we had to be more rigid.

You can see in his face that Jose was irked by those two goals conceded. And THAT is what makes a difference. He'll pick up on that and work on it.
Now that we've won having that nervy finish wasn't the worst thing for us. Must have been pretty clear from that game what jose needs to work on in training & where he needs to look to strengthen in jan

There’s no way Ndombele should be playing as a DM though. I think he will look to bring in a DM once Wanyama is out the door.
I agree he is not a DM but Dier is a poor one either way. He was a passenger in the second half, mobility is a serious issue on top of poor passing. We definitely need a new proper DM.

Any manager would be angry with the last 15 minutes
