Player of the match – Rafael Leao

The Portuguese attacker was in fine form and was a constant threat with his pace down the left hand sided, combining with Theo Hernandez extremely well. He was rewarded with a superb goal, concluding a counter attack that he had started by carrying the ball through the heart of Lazio’s midfield. He then played a one-two with Ante Rebic before slotting the ball into the corner.
