“We had to defend really well, and when we did we defended in numbers,” Martinez said. “We were patient with that and ready to use the counter-attack to good effect.

“On the transition we were lethal and every time we broke we looked really threatening. It allowed us to score two goals and we had another disallowed, plus Aiden McGeady also had a good chance.

“I also thought the two centre-halves (Phil Jagielka and Distin) and (goalkeeper) Tim Howard were outstanding, and I think the shape of the team helped those three to be at their best.”
