He was better after Matic came on. But he was really bad in the first half.I thought he actually did better than usual. Tidy on the ball, kept it moving.
His defensive positioning was still poor and he still didn't make himself available enough - Villarreal had two midfielders with 20+ more attempted passes than him.
The lack of involvement we discussed previously has been highlighted massively the past two matches, particularly against Villa. He is far too content being a passenger.
