Yohan Cabaye Gets Top Billing

7 years ago

Champagne all round last night and a special toast for Yohan Cabaye who was recalled to the team.

French media organisation Le10Sport reckoned that the Newcastle midfielder was man of the match and the ‘real leader’ in the team.

Mathieu Debuchy also got an honorable mention for a vital defensive block when the aggregate scores were level, plus his work going forward.

Thanks yet again to our translator Pierre for the invaluable conversion into English/Geordie from Le10Sport

Lloris (6.5)

Debuchy (7) : The Newcastle player was prominent on the offensive, coming forward often to provide solutions to his forward players. He especially made a decisive rescue from a header by Zozulya  towards the very end of the first period. Replaced by Sagna (77mins).

Varane (6.5)

Sakho (8)

Evra (7.5)

Cabaye (8.5) : What a  performance from the Magpie! Always available and involved defensively, constantly driving forward, he was the real leader in the midfield. Cabaye made the right choices and his inspiration was rewarding for the Blues.

Matuidi (7.5)

Pogba (7.5)

Valbuena (7)

Ribéry (7)

Benzema (7)
