    He's part of the backline, could be a problem of trust and communication, stuff we won't pick up on but could cause him to be dropped.

    Seems to be a couple of close range headers going off the Guardian updates, which sounds more like defenders giving too much space than anything else. I'm guessing a bit there, but they don't call him up on things that I can see. One "farcical" own goal too, which always generates a bit of intrigue!

    Highlights will be interesting, but encouraging that he's started I guess.

    Travers keeping a clean sheet against Villa (1-0 up), while Kelleher on the injury list again of course and not on the bench.

    Southampton picking up where they left off from last season which is no shock. They were poor towards the end and better hope a few others struggle this year or they'll find themselves relegated. Bazunu has looked nervous but wouldn't put fault on him for the goals today.

    Nothing he could do about any of the four goals to be fair to him.

    Nothing. Watched the game and from early moments you knew it was going to be a long afternoon for Southampton. They were a shambles in transition. But none of the goals his fault or where you’d have thought he could do better.

    If I was going to be critical, he seemed a little reticent and did not seem to command his area as much as we’ve seen him do for Ireland. Maybe a little bit of what IU touches on a few posts above.

    Watched the first half of the game. I thought he put in a good enough performance. Could do little about the goals and pulled off a couple of nice saves. The Southampton backline was a shambles.

    Got tricked by James Maddison for Leicester's goal on Saturday. Not his finest moment.

    To be fair to him, it was a brilliant free kick. The biggest question mark would be around the placement of the wall, but there's no camera angle I've seen that shows it.

    Interestingly, on the highlights here, the co-commentator says "I'm really worried about the wall" before the free is taken. (I presume the commentary is live rather than recorded after, with the sort of silly hindsight that Eurosport made famous back in the day)

    Brendan Rogers might be available soon if he does not start getting a few results for Leicester. I wonder if he fancies international management at relatively low wages ?

    Interesting to see where Rogers would go next if his Leicester sojourn comes to an end ?

    Given the fact he speaks Italian and Spanish, it wouldn't be strange seeing him pursue a career on the continent.

    Good game by Bazunu. Two brilliant saves in the first half, one of them from point-blank range. He played as a last man in defence for the Saints, was very alert when having to go out for a United long ball.

    Perhaps a bit hesitant in a couple of high crosses, his defenders dealt with the ball well. Little to do regarding the goal, Fernandes placed the ball in the low corner, it was unstoppable.

    The Villa goal last night won't be one he looks back on fondly. Not a calamity but his hand wasn't as strong as you'd expect. He's had a good season overall so far, was highlighted before the game on Sky for this but not his best moment.

    I think he'll be disappointed with it. Made a decent save but didn't push it away far enough. Another inch or two higher and it was over the bar and we'd all be calling it a great save. Fine lines at that level. Another learning curve for him.

    I thought he got too solid a hand to it, or got to it a touch early. It's an outcome-dependent save - if it drops over the bar it's a great save, like one of his saves in Azerbaijan. I think it's one where a lighter touch safely gets it over the bar. Unlucky not to get away with it but I think it's an error.

    It's a game of inches etc. He will be disappointed with it but I'd imagine he will make worse mistakes in his career. He's stepped up to the level really well so far but there will be plenty of errors to come. He's 20.

    Not great at all for Everton's second. Ball is hit at him with force but he almost Matrix dives out of the way.

    Southampton are so poor though. He gets very little help from what I can see.
    20 leagues and 25 cups.
