There are concerns but Southampton are a very unique team in the league, and first half we suffered, second we looked much better in part because we all played a little deeper. Defence has generally been very solid since lockdown, and against Everton as well, our problems are mostly in transition these days.I'm going to piss on everyone's chips here and say that I don't think we will see it as often as we'd like unless;
a) One of Bale or Son become very good defensively
b) We get a new central midfielder and CB who can command things
I don't think we can afford to play the pair sitting high up like that unless our defending improves massively. Today Winks, Dier, Hojbjerg and Sanchez consistently failed to manage the strikers dropping deep and the overloads on our flank.
