So my team, score and man of the match prediction went well didn’t they?
Answer in short – no they didn’t.
If you ever hear someone utter the words “winning without playing well” lash the video of this game on and walk away.
We dogged that. We absolutely dogged it and it’s absolutely great.
Midfield weren’t on it, up front we looked disjointed, the captain goes off at half time, our final ball was appalling and here we sit with three points. Deadly.
Twenty three more wins needed lads. I’ll take them all like that today.
ALISSON 7… Did what he needed to. Kicked well and held a second half header well. Seany FC is still better looking though.
GOMEZ 7… Hes looking a better player with each passing game. Get him back beside Virgil though.
DEGSY 6… Okay overall but the odd hairy moment. He’ll get better as he goes along.
BIG VIRGIL 7… He’s carrying a knock and you can see it but he’s still the business. Best centre back in the league. No arguments.
ROBBO 7… Rock solid at the back. Nearly set up a second for Sturridge. Best left back around.
HENDO 5… Only 45 mins for the captain and he was quiet while on. Not to worry Jordan, see you next week.
MILNER 6… He put the effort in but it didn’t happen for him for most of it. Very quick return from injury could be a factor.
SHAQIRI 7… Probably my Man of the Match. Worked very hard off the ball and was the one looking creative going forward.
LALLANA 6… Months out and it showed. Can’t accuse him of lacking effort, a few more games will help him.
STURRIDGE 7… Held it well, decent link up play but couldn’t get a decent chance. Another game under his belt.
SALAH 7… He was playing at 60% there. A few moments were Huddersfield looked all at sea with him. Great finish. Few loose passes around the box. Match winner all the same. Nice one Mo.
GINI 7… Played well, brought control to the midfield and used it well. Our best player this season continues his fine form.
FABINHO 6… Great to see him get on and he put himself about. I’d like to see him start against Cardiff.
BOBBY 5… Couldn’t get into it at all. That’s allowed. Only using him for 15 will do him good.
