Yeah. I’ll take that.
Strong in the air, especially from corners. A lot of nervous shouting. But job done.
TAA – 9
And here this whole time I thought he played better when not tethered to the back. Played back to cover for Nat’s lack of pace AND looked incredible going forward. Complete performance.
Phillips – 7
Wins everything in the air. Everything. It’s Mad. About as mad as pushing him forward on a high line like we did in the second half. Yikes.
Kabak – 7
Still looks vulnerable to the high ball in behind but he’s got pace and looks like he’s finding his footing.
Robertson – 7
Played waaaay up on that left side today. Found some good space and created some decent chances.
Thiago – 7
Definitely one of his more complete performances. Thank feck he’s stopped lunging in. He’s gonna connect on one of those sliced volleys one day ya know..
Gini – 8
At his best when he combines industry with direct attacking football. He did that today. Lovely to watch.
Curtis Jones – 9
On a side that’s suffering from a lack of confidence. He’s the exception. Remains composed and assured on the ball. Big, big performance in a much needed spot.
Mane – 7
Working hard. Getting in good spots, tucked in central. Needs a goal. Like everyone else really.
Bobby – 8
I know he’s missing loads of chances. I can’t look past the movement and distribution. Threaded the needle ball after ball, made loads of space for Mo & Mane, and deserved a stroke of luck after taking on all of Sheffield for the second.
Mo – 8
Really unlucky not to be on the score sheet.
