FT 1-0 to Kawasaki. Not a great match, but that may not be surprising against a fit and tidy opponent in its mid-season.
Quite a few players not up to scratch (yet): Zouma, Kenedy, Bakayoko, Drinkwater, Batshuayi. Haven't really noticed much from Alonso either. Mount did okay, but not spectacular, good to see young Kasey Palmer, but he wasn't on long enough to make an impression. Pulisic was also on for a short time and looked lively. Look forward to when he's settled in and gotten to know his teammates. The only one who impressed me was Ross Barkley. He stuck in, trying to create something. We were toothless in attack though.
No Kante or Kepa in the squad.
