Speaking to Sky Sports, Neville gave special praise to Jota and Elliott for their defensive displays.

“There were two really good performances from Jota and Elliott, chasing back and doubling up with the full-backs. That was a shift you would see from two outer midfield players 15 years ago. They didn’t take any chances.”
