Full Match Report to follow….
1. Mario Lemina – A shaky start soon gave way to a composed and intelligent performance in the centre of the pitch. Watch the highlights and see for yourself
2. Juan Cuadrado – Another strong display on his second start in a week. He bossed the right side of the pitch and it was his run that forced Izzo into a rash challenge that ultimately led to his red card.
3. A Clean sheet – The first clean sheet of the season in a tricky match that wasn’t as one-sided as the scoreline suggests
4. Three Points – While the performance wasn’t the best, it was three well earned, hard fought points
5. Chiellini – He really led from the back today, didn’t give Genoa a chance on the ball and won the penalty that wrapped up the result.
