GK: David Raya – 6.5/10
Raya was granted his debut in this match and he justified that decision. A clean sheet on your debut is quite the way to go, but it was his calm and accurate distribution which caught my attention. With Premier League experience, there wasn’t much doubt with Raya between the sticks, but he dealt with the pressure better than expected.
