    I thought he played brilliantly today, did well at the back.

    He was brutal in the first half and superb in the second was excellent for the third goal. I would still not be wanting him to be anywhere near the team on Thursday though

    I would play Toljan there and Lustig at RB.. but if BR was thinking along those lines he would have tried it yesterday. The other option is a change of shape with three at the back.. however, I expect BR will go with Izzy who isn't far away.

    The problem with playing Toljan at LB is you’re taking a very good player out his best position. We did the same vs the huns when we took calmac out of CM to play LB.

    That being said I would probably also do it in this case but it really is a tough decision.

    Difference being Toljan has probably played just as many if not more games at left back though. And is a better player than Hayes - who is originally a winger anyway!

    Has to be Toljan for me, Hayes would get slaughtered imo

    Toljan has played more games at LB in his career so that wouldn't be the issue, the issue is Lustig is finished at RB and is liability at that level... so not a good conundrum.

    having hayes at left back would be brutal as the valencia winger would have a field day and toljan at left back and lustig at right back .

    Agree with above that Brendan would have put Toljan at LB on Sunday if he was thinking of doing it on Thurs. Comes down to who BR has most faith in, Lustig at RB or Izzy at LB?
    Looks like Izzy could get the nod...

    I think Izzy will play on Thursday and being at home I like to think he'll do the job, but, ideally you're wanting KT back for the away leg.

    I don't think Izzy is finished, I think he's just rusty having not played an awful lot of football in the last 12/18 months.

    I just don't see what some see in him, "limited" would be a kind way of putting it. But in his defence, no matter how much he's forced to play there, the guy is not a left-back, he's an attacking left winger.

    Had a feeling with Izzy likely out that Hayes would get the start at left back and he did well with it especially of course the great run and well timed pass to set up Forrest for his goal. I always felt this was a game given how much attacking we were likely to do that Hayes would be fine in as an emergency left back and credit Hayes he put in a good shift. I don't see him starting at left back though on Thursday night against Valencia. More likely we see Lustig return at right back and Toljan move over to left back.

    If Guedes is playing on Thursday then Lustig canny start RB.

    As I've said he isn't a world beater but he gives his all and you need that in games like tonight.

    Played really well. Couple of crosses let him down, but his energy is great and you can tell he loves being here.

    This.

    His crossing was horrendous at times but there is no doubt he was our best player today.

    Absolutely miles ahead of Izaguirre.

    Criminal he never played on Thursday.
