Playing against Antonio Valencia has always been a Hulk Hogan job.

Saying your prayers, taking your vitamins whilst hoping for the best seems your best option but it appears even that couldn’t help Leighton Baines today as Valencia absolutely mullered him when the two went toe to toe in the first half.

On his way back from injury, Rio Ferdinand about Valencia:

I saw Valencia in the gym today…the guy throws the wieghts around like how I threw @RobbieSavage8 about! #strongestwingerinthegame #fact !

And today Valencia showed he is indeed the strongest winger in the game, sending Baines flying after a little barge.

Even if he was rooted into the pitch Baines wouldn’t have been able to stay on his feet!

    Like a new signing sonce being back and a massive bonus for the remainder of the campaign. Baines (who I believe should have been voted in the PFA team of the year ahead of Ashley Cole) had no chance against Valencia’s speed, strength and overall power. What dissapointed me the most was he didnt attempt to go 1 v 1 against him more often in that match and hope he gets the confidence back to terrorise more full backs as the season draws to a close. Great assist for Hernandez and a constant threat makes him a must on my team sheet…watch out Gael Clichy.
    Also…good job at right back vs Chelsea (impressive).

    I like this guy’s play. So calm and composed. Does his job and his understanding with Rafael is one of the best in the world. Unlike Nani and young, he does defend and track back. He works hard and has amazing pace. He’s very explosive when on the break.
