None were outstanding but none looked out of place. I always think it can be difficult for them sometimes playing in these games with more senior players not necessarily playing at full pace all the time. Particularly in the first half when it was a bit slow going.how did the young players perform?
I mentioned Billington above who looks a technically good player who works hard and gets his foot in when needed.
Harrison King looks like a player who gets through a lot of hard work and has a good engine on him. Similar to Harry Kite in many ways. Prefer him in midfield.
Pedro Borges has got an easy way of moving and showed some nice touches playing the most advanced of the central midfield three. It will be interesting if he is seen as a "10" or "8" kind of midfielder. Technically he looks good. Drifted a bit in and out of the game.
Alfie Clark was playing out of position as centre forward and looked like a winger playing there. Again not great service in the first half when he played. He has decent pace, looks to be developing physically to add power. Wants to run at defenders. Very left footed.
Aamir Daniels showed good energy and supported Key and Caprice well down the right. Couldn't quite get in the covering tackle for their goal but did a good recovery tackle not soon after. Possibly needs to stay on his feet more at times as I don't think many are going to run away from him with the ball.
