         “In the beginning of the second half It was a perfect run. The ball is perfect,” Owen told Premier League Productions. He ran the same distance. I thought he would catch the ball but the goalkeeper made his decision.

“He ran, stopping at the penalty area line. You always know that most goalkeepers don’t leave the box at the risk of handball. He ran as far as he could to get into the penalty area.”

         “I think he (Lukaku) has done everything right. I think he has two options: use the guard and take the ball into the far corner like he’s trying to do, or look and shoot at the near post.

         “But Ederson made a great save. I would probably agree with saying it was a better save than a big mistake.”
