    "I did a job for the team. The manager told me to go out there to try to shore things up and be a bit more defensive minded than Daley because I think he went off with something in his eye. At Chelsea, I was playing in a back three but obviously, when Eden Hazard dropped in, my job was to try to go in and do what I could to try to stop him. He’s such a world-class player and sometimes you have to hold your hands up as he is going to get past you. He can do that to anyone but I thought, against Chelsea, obviously the sending off killed the game but, defensively, we were pretty solid and pretty sound. I feel good. I had a little lay-off with my foot for a few weeks which was unfortunate as I was on a bit of a roll and a bit of a run but I feel good again. I’m just looking forward to Sunday. It’s never easy, those 12 o’clock kick-offs can be good if you win as then you’ve got the rest of the day to celebrate and enjoy it. On the other hand, if you lose, it’s not a nice feeling. You spend the rest of the day mithering about the game and going over it in your mind for the next eight hours. We need to make sure we’re ready for it. It will be a difficult game. Middlesbrough are among the teams struggling at the moment but have got good players still. It won’t be easy up there. I think the first 15 minutes will be key. It’s a 12 o’clock kick-off and I’m sure they will be ratting about from the first minute.”
