Obviously that's the chance. But how is that a sitter?
He wasn't able to score from a very comfortable position, nobody was intervening him and he shot the ball so artlessly. I am not criticizing him, cause that happens to everyone. Our strikers including Lautaro have been failing to score in similar situations many times.

Again, how is that a sitter?

No one was intervening with him to take a shot, but did you notice the angle and that there were 3 players including a goalkeeper that were obstructing his view?
It's not like he missed the target. The defender got to it and it hit the bar....


That's not a sitter. A sitter is when you miss a chance when the goalkeeper is defeated or not able to react, while you're unmarked and no one else is in front of you or around you.
There's no possible way to describe that missed chance as a sitter. It's a "great chance", a "clear cut chance", a "big moment" call it whatever you like in this realm of phrases, but a sitter? Not the term to describe what happened.

You were calling Lukaku a meme for missing chances vs Croatia although he similarly had players and the gk in front of him.

I called him a meme because he became the focal point of the conversation for his bad performance.

And 3 of those 4 misses were actually sitters, 2 of which without a defender or a goalkeeper.
The 4th (his 3rd chance) where he hit the bar was the only normal chance he got, which was slightly easier than Perisic's last night because the keeper was on his way down.

If people called for Lukaku's head for that 3rd chance alone you'd be getting somewhere, but you're cropping out the real reasons he was a meme that night.
And Perisic's miss isn't anywhere near that level.

Please tell me what kind of shot you wanted there to score the "sitter", because usually with sitters all you have to do is touch it and it should go in.

Its not even about him missing a chance, its about how he was completely destroyed by Mahrez the whole game. That was his worst defensive performance in years.
Should have never gone to the a shithole thats tottenham, hope that extra million is worth it.

You are just quibbling over the word. That's a sitter in my book, especially knowing his capabilities.

I don’t watch EPL games live very often so I’m always a bit taken aback by how shit the atmosphere is. A game in Lecce is 10x the experience of Anfield.

Now that was an entertaining match. Guess the Gunners are for real!
