Had a slight worry with a knee injury in the first half but was otherwise solid in the midfield battle against his Swansea counterparts.
Kept the ball well in the centre of midfield and tried to move his team forward but struggled to have a real impact before being replaced with 15 minutes left.
Got up well to provide Williams with a good chance in the first half but was otherwise largely isolated as he worked alone up front.
Looked slightly unsure at times as he made some fumbles with the ball on the rare occasions he was called upon.

An undistinguished game for the Frenchman, who struggled to make an impact in the face of a stout Swansea defence.
A typically physical game from the midfielder, but he was far too overzealous in the tackle as he was booked and could quite easily have been sent off.
