Fonte was full of praise for his fellow centre half, Yoshida, who helped keep Hullâ€™s front pairing of Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long quiet.
â€śI thought Maya was excellent,â€ť said Fonte of the Japan international, who has been deputising for the injured Dejan Lovren.
â€śVery, very good, very strong, good in the air â€“ he was faultless, so great credit to him.
â€śJelavic and Long are two of the best strikers in the Premier League in my opinion.
â€śThey work very hard, they donâ€™t give you a second of rest, and tonight was the same.
â€śSo it was a hard night for us, but I felt in general we dealt well with them.â€ť
