The i newsletter cut through the noise

Understandably rusty and so uncertain at times
Caught out on occasions
Adjusted to unnatural left-back role well
Buzzed around and full of ideas
Used his energy well in a deeper-lying role
Kept things ticking over
Couldn’t get involved enough
Pounced once again but had other chances
Gave Blues different dimension with his playing style
Tom Naylor - Gave more bite when he came on - 6
Terrific impact and assist
Lovely header to double Pompey’s lead
