Very lively all afternoon in attack and in defence. Much more comfortable as a wing back as opposed to a central midfield role that he has been playing in recent games.

Failed to step in defensively in midfield leaving many gaps in midfield for Brighton to exploit.

by David Fletcher

Decent going forward. Kept Ryan Fraser relatively quiet, something that he failed to do back in December.

1-0 v Shrewsbury Town (h) 16th January 2018
by Staff Writer

Put in a good shift. However he was spotted as the weakest link by Tottenham to attack. Heung-Min Son in particular was a great source of crosses after beating the Argentine.

4-1 v Huddersfield Town (a) 13th January 2018
by East Stand Martin

Relatively untroubled today and a solid shift at right back.

2-1 v West Bromwich Albion (h) 2nd January 2018

Didn't do much wrong going forward. Was too eager at times, getting caught out of position when tracking back.

3-3 v Bournemouth (a) 26th December 2017

Dealt with Leroy Sane really well down the left-hand side despite not being as quick and agile as his former team mate.

2-3 v Newcastle United (h) 23rd December 2017
by David Fletcher

Outpaced and outplayed constantly down the right, failing to deal on many occasions with Newcastle's Christian Atsu.

Had a decent first half delivering quality crosses and covering a huge amount of ground despite being in the twilight of his career. A poor challenge gifted Brighton their third, however the game was out of their hands by then.

1-1 v Burnley (a) 14th October 2017
by David Fletcher

Putting his body on the line and hard to beat and break down from a Burnley point of view.

A wily old head. Doesn’t look out of place as a wing-back.

2-0 v Huddersfield Town (h) 11th September 2017

Very energetic pressing high up the pitch as far as the goalkeeper on a few occassions and getting stuck in with his tackling.

Decent game. Unfairly castigated over the penalty given all that went before.

0-4 v Manchester United (a) 13th August 2017
by David Fletcher

A true warrior, blocked and cleared absolutely everything that came his way in the first half and the early stages of the second. Yet his booking stopped him from being aggresive and as a result could do nothing to stop the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

(Replaced Byram) A chance for the travelling Hammers to get a second glimpse at the club's new signing.
