What I really liked about his performance was:
- positional discipline;
- whenever he received the ball, he was looking forwards - switching play quickly and forwards; and
- surprisingly tough tackling.
A very good allround central midfield performance. Not looking a bit out of place against truly world class opposition. Well done Winksy - a first of what will hopefully be many great performances.
On another note - we probably didn't appreciate how good Luka Modric actually was when he was with us. A brilliant midfielder that controls play like the conductor of an orchestra.
