Got into some great positions but rarely made the right choice with the ball.

Less said about him defensively the better tonight.

Thought he was really good in the first half but clearly tired in the second half which led to his error.

There is a little trait he needs to get out of his game and that is looking to fall over while protecting the ball. He has the strength and quality to play out of tight spaces, brings a bit of danger on himself at times.

A harsh lesson for him this eve, hopefully he responds well on sunday

Bad mistake last night.

He'll learn. Still think he thinks he's in Italy sometimes and forgets the frantic pace.

It's a mistake from arguably one of the best LB in the league this season.

One mistake won't change my opinion on him. He's class for his age.

Kinda off topic but I wish Udogie got a yellow card today. Would rather he miss the Forest game then possibly miss Everton or Brighton games. Outside of that, he was really impressive today and happy for him to score his 1st goal. More to come.

An absolute force on the left hand side. A freight train and uses his athleticism so well with and without the ball. So smooth technically and intelligent in the spaces he picks up in attack. We’re very lucky with this fullback pair we’ve got.

I rate him very highly so i'm going to be harsh. Think he gave the ball away a few times today. I honestly think if he cut out some of the errors he'll be the best there is in his position.

He is so big and strong, it's easy to forget how young, and relatively inexperienced he really is - he is still developing as a player. We probably need to lock him down on a new deal this summer.

I don’t think it’s just his presence, he is very intelligent in his play and seems to read the game very well. Him and VDV make things look easy and make the right decisions the vast majority of the time. Of course he’s had some moments where inexperience shows and been punished for that, but generally you’d think he’s been playing the position for years and years.

The left side of our team was really strong today, not that the right side was bad, but Deki gravitating to that side meant either he or Udogie were making great runs from that area of the pitch.

Genuine potential to be world class. I've never seen anything like it, it's like he's purpose build for Anges Fullback-midfielder hybrid role.
