Did his bread and butter stuff well but the panic and urgency he had when passing was pretty telling. The lads nerves have gone. Massive shame as he needs to realise he is a mountain of a man.Watching the TV, I thought he had a solid if unspectacular game. Carol is slowly bringing a little confidence to all the players - but for Pickford's howler it would have been a clean sheet.
Ancelotti's giving him chances, saying 'I want you to mark Benteke today son'. I hope he doesn't make a habit of leaving Holgate on the bench, but me today was a postive, an assured performance by Keane over the 90 minutes making the case why he deserves to be part of Ancelotti's plans.....presume he played because of Benteke’s threat in the air. Benteke is slower than me, disappointing he managed to get in behind for the goal. I am 63.
