Fouls on Eze

Post by PeterS » Sun Oct 28, 2018 9:19 am

Dean Smith went on about systematic fouls on Grealish but Iwould love to see the stats for fouls on Eze - relentlessly fouled.

Eze fouled 7 times and Grealish 5 apparently.

Both players are rare talents in this league and are very comfortable in possession and aren't always looking to move the ball at the first opportunity: they are therefore bound to get tackled and fouled more than most.

Grealish played deeper than Eze so got the ball more and would've been tackled more: he also looked less threatening.

Down to the excellent work by Cameron and Luongo who, I would hazard a guess, were told to sit on him and starve Villa's supply to the forwards. Luongo did a similar job on Bannon against Wednesday, both times forcing them deep into their own half where their technical superiority was mostly nullified.
It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.

Quite right - quite the reverse if anything. Our eye-opening 23 fouls to their 12 tells part of the story of the game. No more Messrs Nice Guys, that's for sure.

I think that's a big difference between the QPR of last season and this. For all the plaudits Scowongoman got they were out muscled on too many occasions. Cameron is now the physical presence we needed in CM and we seem tougher all round the park.

And the irony of that piece is Grealish is fouling Mass in the photo.

Eze’s Performance against villa reminded me of taraabt at his best in the premier league for us. I.e. not running the game like he did in the championship but making the ball stick, getting fouled and disrupting the opposition’s flow, keeping possession and giving us the potential for a moment of magic.

It was such a mature performance and his touch is unreal.
