Couldn't decide between Eyoma and Edun, Edun just edged it for me, as I do wonder if Eyoma was getting himself out of position a little too often. Once Edun went in a more advanced role in the second half he showed his ability.
Tricky. No one stood out, as being either great or terrible. A feat given that we let in seven. Will go for Edun. Only because the spellcheck on this phone converts his name to Edam, and I fancy a cheese toastie.
Eyoma: 20 years old, playing a little out of position (I think he is definitely an attacking right-back) and facing some world class players in only his sixth professional game. Did well, is going to be a very good player.
Gone for Montsma. No-one really stood out but he made some good interceptions and scored (if it crossed the line, but he still won the header), albeit after Van Dijk went off. Honourable mentions to Scully, Edun and Palmer (not much he could do about any of the goals really).
Scully. Still running full tilt at 85 ; what an engine! With a bit of cooler finishing, he might have had a couple. Very much like the cut of this young man's jib. Edun did have an excellent second half, but was largely anonymous in the first 45 minutes.
A hard one to pick in such a game, and everyone played their part, but I've gone for Eyoma. Imagine being on his place, having only ever made a handful of senior appearances and then having to play out of position against the PL and club world cup champions. Did really well and think he is going to become a fan favourite in time.
A lot of positives to take from last night’s game versus Liverpool. Sure, one or two players went missing first half but let us not detract from the fact that a number of top quality internationals were gracing the LNER Stadium turf. Edun took his goal well with some good build up play as did Montsma. Grant for me was MoM he put a decent shift in throughout the whole 90 minutes and tried to make things happen. Shoutout for the whole squad though last night - proud !
