You can tell he put a lot of effort into his performance trying to defend ahead for the Blues, but how he could ruin not picking Doucoure on a strong Everton break in the second half.

He looked very progressive on the rare occasions he did manage to gain possession of the ball and was rewarded with an excellent free-kick assist. I have never stopped sprinting.
