9 goals in 2 games, #NUFC were dominant for large spells but needed Guimaraes to provide 2 match-defining moments at key points. Almiron & Willock also excellent but a lot of very good performances. Up to 5th on goal difference now.
There is so much to admire about this #NUFC team right now, but, as simple as it seems, merely seeing every player head out on to the pitch yesterday knowing exactly what their role is & precisely what Eddie Howe expects from them remains refreshing.
The attention to detail which led to Bruno Guimaraes' set-piece goal & to #NUFC pressurising David Raya & Brentford's defence in possession, forcing two mistakes for goals, is testament to Howe & his coaching staff's diligence, & to the players to embracing their methods.
What a difference a year makes for NUFC. But for all of the owners' riches, it was a player they nicked for a bargain price who was the star here. At £36m, Bruno Guimaraes really was a steal.
#nufc move into the top six with a commanding victory over Brentford. We knew Bruno was good but he is just a pleasure to watch and seems to be getting better. So good, so calm, so skilful, he looks like he is playing a different game to everyone else at times.
