Kristensen 8: What a player and what a Premier League debut for the lad. He had Bailey in his pocket the entire game. He marked his man, made tackles, and was putting in runs on the offensive end. For a smaller guy, he has INSANE physicality. He always was so excited when he or his teammates made a big play. This guy is exciting. He is a pitbull!
KDH 7: The midfield wasn’t at its best today. They left too many openings for Villa to attack. However, we don’t get our first goal today without the effort of KDH. Along with that, he was making beautiful passes throughout the game. We just need to have a defensive midfielder throughout the game.
Tielemans 6: We didn’t hear much from Tielemans today. No negatives but no real positives either.
Maddison 7: Life is better when Maddison is on the pitch. We score goals when he is playing. He netted our first one to cement his comeback into the team. Simply such a creative player. He performed well throughout his time on the pitch.
