This is a valid point - lack of concentration and basic marking often leads to avoidable goals. Off topic but the Bournemouth goal V man u is a case in point. If the defender just stands his ground (and stands behind the scorer) then the thing just fizzles out.

Lots of basic but excellent defensive play just goes unnoticed, understandably because nothing happens. Moves just fizzle out. The types of players that do that well go unnoticed too, regrettably
