He started shaky today, think he got rinsed positionally for the chance they had right at the start of the game. But he settled down and did alright overall I thought.
On another note, that was a Ryan Shawcross-esque performance from Andy Carroll today. That disgusting combination of being overly physical whilst throwing yourself to the ground at any opportunity when the boots on the other foot.
