Have not lost a game in 2017 having scored 21 and conceding 5 and with an in-form striker like Mabkhout that number does not surprise us. Inching closer to their first title in 6 years.

It’s starting to feel like the past misfortunes have left them behind. A win over Hatta is nothing to brag about, mind you, but given that their city rivals just slipped makes it ever satisfying.

Nasser Al Shamrani scored two from the spot. That’s a plus and his first couple since his highly publicised move to Al Ain.

Doesn’t help if they drop home points against teams that they should be winning against – looked out of their unusual place. Perhaps the yellow of Kalba distracted them? Bad joke.

A much-needed victory to stop a four-game winless skid. Al Wahda still haven’t quite found their core identity since that drubbing at the hands of Al Jazira, and had to wait till Tagliabue and Dzsudzsák were back from serving suspensions.

Imagine how Dibba could have benefitted if Fettouhi only scored from the penalty spot? Can’t expect much if the team is not able to capitalise when gifted opportunities

Surprised that they lost given who their opponents were along with their decent run in the past four games. But then again should we be surprised?

Another drab performance from a team whose morale seems to be shaken. Petrescu has his work cut out for him.

It took some effort from Maiga to equalise right away. Probably did enough to shake Al Wasl to their core which worked.

Did not have an answer against an attacking force which when in tangent can destroy an team across the Middle East. Yes, we understand that it was a bold statement yet we are sticking to it.

That was a particularly cruel way to lose a game, given that things were looking bright for the ‘so-called’ giant killers. The real issue, though, is that this team still has no tactical identity.

Surprised that they won given their recent track record. There is still hope for survival if luck plays its part.

That “Last four results” says it all about Al Shabab, who are still struggling to figure out a way to make that defensive line stronger. Would like to get into Dukic’s state of mind if given the opportunity?
