Got forward well early on down the right. Caught out of position a couple of times from a defensive point of view.

A couple of hesitant moments but in the main helped keep Billy Sharp and David McGoldrick - goal aside - under control.

Another assured display from the centre-half  who reads the game so well. Makes room for himself well and doesnt panic on the ball.
