    I think technically it was, although Elliott barely played as a midfielder – there was a clear front 4 of Elliott, Salah, Firmino and Diaz with no fixed focal point (as usual with Firmino). Hendo looked a bit uncomfortable at LCM, some of his typical turns resulted in him turning into trouble, but against Bournemouth these problems were not magnified.

    Elliott was playing a Coutinho role. Nominally on the right and did nice work there with Salah and Trent, but also popped up left and center and really helped Bobby be Bobby.

    Carvalho played same role in the 2nd half.

    We were playing, moving and attacking in triangles.

    I've not seen us play like this for a long time and it was really refreshing to see this basic tactic brought back.

    It's beginning to make sense why we bought nimble, quick on the turn, tenacious, scampering little forwards like Diaz, Harvs and Fabio. They are great in playing quick interchanging triangular passes. Another new weaponry added to our arsenal.

    You could say that Fulham's game plan of keeping salah quite did work to perfection....

    That would be a strange plan indeed since they’re are playing Arsenal.

    The plan is now clear: Mark has to start the threads, @tombrown go diving and @Modo sleep through the first half and we’ll be fine!

    Chill bro, it was only Bournemouth. You have to at least deliver a win over City to take your place in the Pantheon.

    And while everyone was talking about changing the line up and benching Firmino. I'm the one who said go with the tried and trusted.
