I thought he kept the ball well all game. Think only Carrick and Evans from memory had more passes than him, and he only gave it away 5 times, none of which were in dangerous areas defensively. He only gave away 2 free kicks, one of which was very harsh. I agree his final ball wasnt great, but defensively i thought he was mature and going forward he was strong, linking up really well with Valencia, with his runs off the ball creating soa lot of space for others. I'd have no problem if he played like that every game.
