Made a fine save to keep out Joachim Andersen’s header and showed safe hands when needed. Once played Doherty into trouble with a poor pass.

Lost possession more than anyone in green, including overhitting a cross when he did get forward. Looked uncomfortable defensively, too.

Often in the right place to snuff out attacks and kept the ball moving, even if his radar for raking passes was a little off.

Occasionally excellent, occasionally unsure. Made one brilliant tackle on Ruben Loftus-Cheek but his defending for Fulham’s disallowed goal was poor and it felt like a let off.
