A decent effort to get ourselves back in the game, but you can't go letting yourself go three goals down at home before half time. Though the last 15 mins we barely laid a glove in them in the final third.

Great run from Traore for the opener, and good to see Fabio get another with a very nice finish.

MOTM: N/A. No-one really stood out.

Just shot ourselves in the foot too many times. If we had been as wily as them in fouling players early in transitions we wouldn't have conceded two of them.

I would just play this system now tbh. We will at least score some more goals and we can't be that bad again in terms of distances and positional play without the ball.

Just play Vitinha now too I think.

Midfield were as streetwise as a 12 year old and Coady and Saiss should never be allowed near a back four ever again. Rui feeble on his near post. If these lessons are learned all is not completely lost. Nice goal from Silva, Vitinha looked ok but that was completely overshadowed by a pitiful defensive display.

I don't think we should play a back 4 when our two best defensive players are out.

We faded badly after scoring the second.

We’ve seen far worse games than that this season. One more game ticked off till the summer. Fabio scored a good goal.

There’s three positives. Good night.

Garbage. Superficially attacking football but dreadful defensively.

Would you really play Coady and Saiss in a back four again?

Rest of the season, let’s stick to 4231 if that’s the way nuno wants us to play next year.

give Fabio a few starts as I can’t see us keeping Jose, rightly so

centre mid who can get round the pitch and 1/2 centre halves in the summer

weirdly we didn't concede another 3 goals in the 2nd half despite having 4 defenders

first half was dire. nice goal for fabs. had opportunities to tie/win, didn't take them

Hopefully Boly will be back before the next game. Though if reports that he only found out this morning are true, he probably won't.

We've got a good run-in to the end of the season now. As good a time as any to stick with this and assess what we need in the summer.

Friday? Would be illegal I think.

To be fair if Antonio hadn’t have gone off I dread to think what the score line might have ended up being.

Antonio going off and the fact they were protecting a lead might have more to do with it than Saiss and Coady improving.
