  • Star performer:

    My star performer yesterday was Moses Simon who was in the thick of it for Levante as he continues to add defensive capabilities to his all-round play in a 3-5-2 formation.

    The diminutive winger, who was recently on national team duties, laid a sublime though pass (that is more technical than it looks) in the build up to his team’s first goal.

    In that same build up, he could be seen drifting into dangerous areas in case the ball finds his way back to him so he can inflict some harm on the opposition.

    Simon was a key performer yesterday.
