One of his better games. In all honesty I didn't think he was that great at the game but watching the highlights he looked half decent. Like many of them, we should see an improvement next season when they will have that bit more experience.

He did play well and he pushed up very high, aided by the system.

Agree about the system - wing back seems to help with his shortcomings. There is enough defensive cover when he is slow to track back or gets beaten by a winger. And it allows him to get further forward to help with attacks.

I thought it was his best game for us,
He did really well with a header on goal right at the start of the second half.

But, his technique with the cross shot for our equaliser was excellent.
He could easily have blasted that high, wide and handsome but he got it on Ďtargetí and gave the keeper little chance to do anything but palm it away.

Apart from a lack of pace I think he's a decent player. Trouble is 13 million doesn't go far, and he's about that level. I'd like him to be a bit more dynamic, but with a bit of confidence I think he can be a useful asset.

Is he an upgrade on Taylor; a definite yes as Taylor offers nothing once he crosses the half-way line.

To be fair all of our players have been under pressure to get results pretty much from day one this season. The Villa side that struggled after promotion in 1988 looked like a different side to the one that played with such confidence the following season.

To be fair, most Southampton fans said he had a great left foot but was a bit slow and a bit weak, and not that bright. All of those things are accurate.

appears to be better as a wing back, with three centre backs - it means the left sided centre back gives him a bit more cover. Better going forward than the defensive stuff.

I'd say he seems bright, he links up very well and has developed a good understanding with Grealish; some of their interplay has been really clever.

I said on here before the Brighton game I was looking forward to his return. Perfectly suited for wing back. Hope he kicks on from here. Very good on the overlap when confident.

He is also the possessor of a very long pass.
