He's been all over the pitch, heading balls, getting it down and playing.[LNB]'He's been unplayable to a certain extent, which you actually saw growing and then this happens.[LNB]'It doesn't surprise me the way our injuries have been this season. It feels like we're under a black cloud but it's unfortunate for him as well because individually he's been amazing.'
