Has to be Bentley for a faultless performance & a world class bit of keeping to not only save a penalty but a great & brave recovery save as well. Having said that Nico ran himself into the ground against a decent Fulham midfield, the usual tenacity & lovely bit of football for his goal. Honourable mentions for Harlee & also Sawyers who demonstrated that he can put his foot in & work hard defensively.
Dan Bentley did a great job; I think the work he did with Royce on the opposition paid off handsomely and he made some important saves in play, too. Still, I voted for Yennaris. Smith's tactical change to push Nico into their midfield triangle to press and disrupt, with a bit of support from Kerschbaumer, while Sawyers dropped into the recycling position, changed the dynamic. That work, a tackle on our line and being on the end of a beautiful team goal did it for me.
Voted for Nico who was excellent but obviously Bentley was fantastic. Got to give some credit to both full backs as well who, after a tough first 45, really stuck to their task and defended really well and stopped a lot of crosses while also still getting forward whenever they could.
