Carrasco’s ball losses and decision-making are actually hurting the crew in the intervening time.

He had taking pictures lanes with the rating degree within the first half however selected to cross or dribble as a substitute. 3


Aggressive within the deal with and handed precisely all through, however the captain continues to look below-par bodily and almost unrecognizable from final season’s Koke. 4

De Paul

Missed the ball on Machís’s outside-the-box equalizer, a deal with you’d anticipate him to make. Booked within the recreation’s opening exchanges however didn’t appear fazed. His set-piece deliveries have to enhance. 5


Credited with an help on Félix’s opening objective, although it should be mentioned the Portuguese did a lot of the work himself.

On the hour, he struck a shot off the bottom of the publish that changed into Granada’s winner. 8


Decided to contain himself early on, fluffed his strains with what would have been his first good alternative. Steadily labored out of the sport as his poor type rolls on. 2.5


The Mexico worldwide provides little to this crew, and his partnership with Koke goes past any description of “dangerous.”


Caught a volley over the crossbar inside the ultimate 10 minutes — would have been a positive objective if it had been on the right track. 4.5


Had two high quality probabilities towards the tip and may have at the very least put the rebound from Lemar’s shot-cross on the right track. 3.5
