I was not able to watch the League Cup game yesterday due to other commitments, but I did catch up and watched it later on that day. Instead of doing player ratings, I will just be stating a couple of things that I noticed: - Chambers had some absolutely brilliant long balls to the strikers. They were almost picture perfect, and I was impressed by his performance. - Elneny's distribution has improved incredibly after every game. I honestly don't understand why so many people see him as a bad player, I think he is a perfect squad rotation player to have on any team. - Maitland-Niles keeps on impressing me when he goes forward. His crosses were always dangerous in this game, and he was a serious threat coming from that LWB role. - Wilshere's distribution in the final 1/3 of the pitch was incredible. The bend that he has on the ball and vision is something that we greatly missed, especially with Cazorla out. - Alexis Sánchez's assist was just breathtaking.
