Hmm, is that in the same way you might claim to have played a blinder because you restricted Benin Adobe to one shot on target? The fact that they couldn’t shoot straight is not necessarily down to the quality of defence.
Heading into this summer, the future of defender Ben Davies was one of the main concerns for Preston North End fans.
The centre back has arguably been the big success story of the Alex Neil era, emerging from forgotten youngster to indispensable star.
Calm, composed and talented on the ball whilst possessing a fine reading of the game, Davies has become a superb centre back – and has the added quality of being left-footed, which many managers love due to the balance that can provide.
The problem for Preston is that Davies is out of contract in 2021. He has just one year left on his deal at Deepdale, and many have expected him to go.
On Sunday, the Daily Mail reported that Leicester City want to sign Davies, with Brendan Rodgers keen to add a new centre back this summer.
