First up, they focus on Kevin de Bruyne’s magical display against Spurs. The Belgian midfielder started his first Premier League game on Boxing Day last season after lengthy spells out with injury.
Now he is fully fit and well and truly back in the groove with three assists in his first two PL games of the campaign.
The 2 Robbies also broke down how Sheffield United’s center backs become wide players when they are attacking, and how that can create issues both for opponents and the Blades.
This video analysis was filmed before Sheffield United beat Crystal Palace 1-0 thanks to, you guessed it, center back Jack O'Connell marauding down the left flank and helping to set up the winning goal.
