Fair play to the lads, they did create chance after chance and were denied by some excellent goalkeeping and defending especially in our last 2 games, but again, there is a rustiness about our attack that hopefully will be worn off before Goodison Park.
The other piece of concerning news is that we seem to be slowly easing ourselves into our customary injury crisis as the season beckons. Smalling is out till October nursing a meta-tarsal, Evans is still recovering from surgery (despite the whole summer break) and now we're being told that Phil Jones has left pre-season camp because of illness. It essentially means that we are as badly off in defence as the season ended.
Here's to a quick recovery for all of them.
