Several players had off days last night, which I would guess is largely down to how Reading set up and the lack of an Argentinian magician! I’m sure we’ll get to grips with Emi’s absence and I think Vrancic starting on Sunday would help with that, as the most similar type of player we have to Emi.
On Krul, he’s ok but no more. He seems to pick the ball out of the net far more regularly than he makes a blinding save. The poster that says he saves what he should and nothing more, is spot on IMO.
Reading’s keeper kept them in the match with several very good saves, which is why he was their MOTM. I don’t recall Krul making a save of note but conceding two goals, which is sometimes how the cookie crumbles but this does appear to happen more often than it should. Maybe he’s just unlucky with the quality of shot being faced but that seems a little far fetched.
