Best player on the pitch, makes things happen. Fast, skilful, and creates chances for himself, we've missed his qualities big time.

At last he is allowed to play where he is most effective!

we know he is a quality player, just not had chance to show it.

Same can be said for numerous others who have come and gone in the last year or so

My motm tonight, really impressive. That bit in the second half when he sprinted 25 yards to keep the ball in then created a chance, totally committed. 

 

Shout out fir Dawson as well - and Dave with the goals.

Still want to see him play a few games with Joao upfront.

Thought he was absolutely class tonight, if Atty hadn't done his best impression of Lukaku for the evening, then he'd easily be my MOTM.

 

How Carlos thought he was so far away from the matchday squad is beyond me.

He has a very dynamic, all action style playing in this position. 

He always looked slow and indecisive before - it’s a massive change in his manner on the pitch

Scored one ruled out! Made so many chances with willing running in behind, 2nd goal was all his work.

 

Top performance, THIS is the Matias we thought we were getting. Just took a manager who knows how to play to his strengths!

 

Work rate was fantastic too, get him and Nuhiu in next game. Joao and Rhodes need to show same attitude to get their place back.

It's taken a manager to play him .

That was a terrific 2nd half performance from Matias, great pace at last, just what we need.

At the risk of overly-complementing strikers that don't score goals (as last game I was full of positives for Joao), but I think that's one of the best performances I've ever seen from an attacking player where they haven't been able to score. Seriously he was everywhere, he worked hard, he created chances and he so so so deserved a goal today. Looked a class above at times.

 

And did anyone see the way he celebrated his assist to Nuhiu? Literally dropped to his knees and started fist pumping the air and screaming like he'd just scored a pen in the cup final itself. 

 

I've long knocked him for being constantly unfit and that such a long spell out of the limelight would be hard to get over psychologically. It just seems that all it's done is make him want it more. Legitimately excited to see what he can do moving forward. A side with him, FF and Reach all supporting an attack would be a very exciting prospect.

Played well second half. So-so first.

Could easily have been sent off. Seemed a bit too much "up for it" first half, but was calmer second, and as a result, a lot more effective.

Pace and movement up top. What we’ve been lacking for so long. Took some stick for probably being played out of position. Lets hope we get a few more performances out of him this season

Absolutely mind-boggling isn't it. Fair enough he's lacking match-sharpness, but we were given the impression from team selection that he was either chronically unfit or just lost any ability he had. 

He's arguably been one of our best players since Jos has took over and he looked by far and away the most dangerous attacking player we have tonight. It wasn't a perfect performance, but it was so far removed from the tedium and predictable one-paced play we're used to that it was like a breath of fresh air
