So much of his work in defence can be unnoticed, but he was very effective yesterday.
Only by people who believe commentators' lazy cliches.
He's one of the hardest-working on the pitch, sometimes to his detriment - similar to Rooney in that respect.

Played well yesterday. Wonder if he would have played if Antonio was fit.
I prefer him wide personally - he was useful yesterday adding pace and press centrally but I’m hoping an appropriate signing for centre mid in this window makes that less needed.
Agree about freeing him up to attack.
Pellegrini was trying to compensate for our defensive issues by making our flair players sit too deep imo.
