"It was a super goal from Che Adams, an unbelievably brilliant pass from Jose Baxter...Che was a threat throughout the course of the game.

"I must say Reedy (Louis Reed) came in in the middle of the park and I thought he had a fantastic game beside Dean Hammond and Dominic Calvert-Lewin making his first start, I thought he did ever so well."
