    Koke, Raul and Torres looking sharp. Our class is showing, it’s a matter of time until we score.

    Not sure about Torres, hes looking average at best. Gabi looks like the Gabi of last season. Agree with you on Koke and Raul.

    I really dont understand Griezmann going off on Wednesday but playing what looks like the whole game here.

    Scary how good Griezmann can be….

  • Kris

    Torres still doesn’t have confidence in front of goal.

  • Brad

    Just glad he’s on our side!

  • Abdil Egriøz

    I feel sorry for him, he works his ass off every match and even creates chances for himself but he strugles to score on simple occasions..
