An off‑the-boil team man’ned by misfiring playe’rs who when not being beat’en 5-0 (by Liverpool), 4‑2 (Leicester City), 1-0 (Aston Villa), 2-1 (You’ng Boys), and 1‑0 (West Ham), thrash Tottenham 3-0, Leeds 5-1 and Ne’wcastle 4-1, while havin’g to rely on la’st-minute goals in Europe,in a 2-1 win against Young B’oys and the 3-2 victory and 2-2 draw with Atalanta.
