One could have deduced that from the game itself. The opening was rather odd. White’s body language and clock use suggested, in fact, that something started going wrong fairly early. Carlsen with the white pieces started yet again with a Reti, the non-commital 1.Nf3, and he transposed rapidly into an English, rather than going for a repeat of the first game.
