An unsung hero. He's been immense in the last two games and his return has coincided with two fantastic performances. Could maybe have done better for Tevez's goal tonight, but overall it's great to have such a natural leader in the back four again. He brings a real sense of calm to the defence and his return has also coincided with an upturn in Jonny Evans' form. He looks much more assured when alongside Rio than he does alongside Brown and the whole defence feels more secure with him in it. Fingers crosses he can stay fit for the remainder of the season because there are some massive games coming up.
