He picked up some good positions in the first half and fed in 3 or 4 decent little passes into the forwards, the issue is his brain often moves quicker than his body can react these days, faded as the half went on. Better than Lingard? Yes in that he has a picture of what's around him and more intelligent use of the ball, but the fact him and Lingard are our two main options for the #10 role is just another example of the mess we are in.
I think he runs out of steam around the hour mark in most games these days, he rarely ever plays a full 90.Did well enough, I am not sure why the feck was he replaced by Lingard when the Saints were defending deep...
