It was easy to forget that players like Maguire and Nmecha were on the field and neither of them was having any joy prior to Pearsons red card either. 7/10

3. Pontus Jansson

A fairly simple match but made it straightforward by avoiding mistakes, using the ball sensibly and giving away very few free-kicks. 7/10
