Fonte was full of praise for his fellow centre half, Yoshida, who helped keep Hull‚Äôs front pairing of Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long quiet.
‚ÄúI thought Maya was excellent,‚ÄĚ said Fonte of the Japan international, who has been deputising for the injured Dejan Lovren.
‚ÄúVery, very good, very strong, good in the air ‚Äď he was faultless, so great credit to him.
‚ÄúJelavic and Long are two of the best strikers in the Premier League in my opinion.
‚ÄúThey work very hard, they don‚Äôt give you a second of rest, and tonight was the same.
‚ÄúSo it was a hard night for us, but I felt in general we dealt well with them.‚ÄĚ
