Tottenham Hotspur

3-2: Wednesday, 25th October

Did not play.

Brighton & Hove Albion

0-3: Friday, 20th October

Didn't do much wrong, but neither did much right either. Too many square passes going forward and poor communication with Winston Reid on set pieces.

Burnley

1-1: Saturday, 14th October

Resolute and compact at the back. A consistent performanve from the Portuguese international.

Swansea City

1-0: Saturday, 30th September

Was solid in defence and enjoyed a lot of time on the ball making some good long passes.

Tottenham Hotspur

2-3: Saturday, 23rd September

Was solid in defence and enjoyed a lot of time on the ball making some good long passes.

Bolton Wanderers

3-0: Tuesday, 19th September

Did not play.

West Bromwich Albion

0-0: Saturday, 16th September

Huddersfield was his best game in the shirt. This wasnít as good as that but he still looked comfortable.

West Bromwich Albion

0-0: Saturday, 16th September

Was solid in defence and enjoyed a lot of time on the ball making some good long passes.

Huddersfield Town

2-0: Monday, 11th September

Fairly weak in defence being beaten constantly out wide in his three-at-the-back role having to rely too much on his defensive partners.

Newcastle United

0-3: Saturday, 26th August

Did not play.

Cheltenham Town

2-0: Wednesday, 23rd August

Did not play.

Southampton

2-3: Saturday, 19th August

It says volumes that neither Southamptonís MOTM (Mason) nor his runner-up wore a Southampton shirt. Though both might well have done.

Manchester United

0-4: Sunday, 13th August

Did not play.

Manchester City

0-3: Friday, 4th August

Played an hour before being replaced.

Altona 93

Werder Bremen

0-1: Friday, 28th July

(Replaced Collins) One of several substitutes who were introduced on the hour mark.

Burnley

2-1: Sunday, 21st May

Won a lot of ball even if he didnít then have an awful lot of a clue as to what to do with it.

Burnley

2-1: Sunday, 21st May

Offered a lot going forward and was solid at the back. Good all round performance from the Portuguese international.

Liverpool

0-4: Sunday, 14th May

Was solid in the early exchanges but bit by bit lost his composure at the back. Was at fault in the first goal playing Daniel Sturridge onside and was replaced early on in the second half, although partly due to the fact that Slaven Bili? was looking for some attacking flair in the side.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-0: Friday, 5th May

Continues to look much better as part of a three.

Tottenham Hotspur

1-0: Friday, 5th May

Seems to be getting better every time he wears the Claret and Blue colours. Good on the ball and never affraid to get stuck in.

Stoke City

0-0: Saturday, 29th April

Everton

0-0: Saturday, 22nd April

Sunderland

2-2: Saturday, 15th April

Not having a regular partner doesnít help but neither does stupid challenges made after 80 seconds.

Swansea

1-0: Saturday, 8th April

A nice comfortable afternoon for the centre half who probably needed one of those.

Arsenal

0-3: Wednesday, 5th April

Not having a regular partner doesnít help but neither does stupid challenges made after 80 seconds.

Hull City

1-2: Saturday, 1st April

Not having a regular partner doesnít help but neither does stupid challenges made after 80 seconds.

Leicester City

2-3: Saturday, 18th March

Got lost for their second and third goals. The reshuffle didnít help but he should have adapted quicker.

AFC Bournemouth

2-3: Saturday, 11th March
