“He was involved in everything that went on. Youri Tielemans was fantastic and there were some superb performances. I’m going to go for Wilfred Ndidi, but i could have given it to anybody. The only one i couldn’t give it to was Kasper Schmeichel because he’s had nothing to do
The match also brought in father and son to history book.
