Woah. Outstanding tonight, in both boxes.

Some player we have with us until the end of the season. Him and Baker could be an awesome combination.

His fault for their first goal wasn’t it ?

Wonder if it is a loan with view to buy?

Possibly both he got pulled wide. Both goals unmarked player in 6 yard box

Korey Smith. Benkovic followed his man leaving a big gap which Smith would have filled.....if he had tracked the runner.

It was three on two, he got drawn to the near post but he was marking someone.  I'd look at the midfield harder, losing the challenge without making a foul out of it and not coming back with a runner.

Yes, need to watch second one back again but he was naive on the first for sure.

Benkovic followed Williams man didn’t he?

I'm guessing once he tunes into playing alongside a regular partner at the back, communication of who's picking up who will massively improve. Was a bit 'Wild West'  the way him and Williams were picking up players in the box at times! Great early signs though from our young Croat.

Yep, and Leicester rate him highly. A lot of big European clubs were tracking him before he went to the East Midlands.

£13 million he cost Leicester mate. Thirteen 

Rodgers really rates him too. Zero chance

There were two forwards at the near post with Williams and Benkovic both with them.  Williams didn't get up enough for the header and glanced it.  The scorer came in behind running from midfield.

Think you need to watch that back again. 

Good on the ball and dangerous in their box, but positioning poor on a number of occasions tonight.

Waghorn makes a clever run but Smith must do better it was his man and hd just stopped.

I haven't seen a replay, but I had the impression he got his ankles clipped and lost a stride.  Should have fouled, should have made up ground with Waghorn - agree.

Certainly the first, the cross should have never got in. 

Hunt gone AWOL and was yards away from his man. No pressure at all on the crosser. That’s poor.

If you watch it back Smith is actually with the runner but let's him go. Think he could/maybe should have tracked him. 

Thought Dasilva was too wide and should have marked Waghorn if you look at it back Dasilva is backpost marking no one. Think both their goals were sloppy on our part rather than them being overly good

Whoever was at fault there were two goals conceded where their player was unmarked in the six yard box. We looked a bit wide open in defence in the last half hour. In contrast to the last two away games. 

Maybe it will improve with more games together. I would like to think Kalas would be in that defence when fit. NB has also been very good recently.  I'm unsure about it being AW and FB as the first choice CBs.

We have been defensively suspect for most of the season. 45 goals conceded in 32 games so far is a chastening statistic. We need to tighten up at home which means more support from midfield and pressing a bit further up the pitch.

Dasilva's positioning all game was off and I noted exactly the same as you.

He had a poor game defensively imo and was a weak link.

His forward play sometimes masks his relatively poor defensive play - young intelligent player with huge talent who will get it right.

 Certainly can’t put any blame on the CB’s for the 2nd goal. They were both up front for our free kick and were not defending their counter attack.

I heard Ian Gay on BBCRB blame him for both.

I only quickly watched them back:

Goal 1:  Waghorn is actually William’s man, but he reverses his run and Benkovic stays on Martin....which then makes it look like Benkovic is marking the same player as Williams.  You either blame them both for not passing-on properly (comms?)or you give Waghorn the credit for great movement

Goal 2:  it wasn’t Rowe (25) trying to cover both a shot and a cross and ultimately doing neither.  Sometimes you just hope the crosser shoots at the keeper or messes up the cross.  I’m not sure where Benkovic was...Henriksen was trying to get back to block the cross.

I was worried after he was bullied for the 3rd goal against Brum but thought he was very good last night.

I may be wrong but didn't the second goal come from a quick breakaway from our free kick on the edge of the area so I think he was in their box. At the time I thought it was Henriksens fault as he played a lazy ball in the box without looking which went straight to their man, which started the attack. (A bit like Birminghams first goal on Friday when Hunt done the same thing when we had man committed forward)

Elliasson was naive for the second goal. If he brings the man down and takes the yellow card , they don’t score .

This is pretty impressive, and before anyone says it, they were definitely not all sideways or backwards.
