GK – Robert Sanchez

Although the 26-year-old was not at fault for any of the 4 goals against Newcastle, he still doesn’t command his area as a top keeper should do.

Every time a corner was crossed into the box last weekend, panic set in. Sanchez even slipped over at one point, but Joelinton missed an open goal with a header.

While the Spanish international did make some good saves, his inconsistent performances are not helping an unsettled defence.

Sanchez is unlikely to have a quiet afternoon against his former club so Blues supporters will just have to hope that he has one of his good games.
