Coming off a broken fibula, Derek Carr doesn't think he has any effects from the injury. So it would interesting to see how this combination works out for the Cardinals.

Fabregas was booked for sarcastically applauding Pawson's decision to give a free-kick against him and much worse was to follow. Ward scores - The full-back plays a neat one-two and from the inside left, he slams in a shot past Courtois .
