I don't know. I watching now, and Sweat keeps rubbing his hands like it's cold. It's distracting. I can't even pay attention to what they're saying for worrying why they can't just turn up the thermostat.
I actually didn't notice this, personally. Definitely a criticism for the next one, we should let them know ;)

When you’re as slow and as unathletic as Sweat, you don’t get to decide when it happens.
There are definitely parts of sweat’s game warranting criticism, but athleticism isn’t one of them. The dude is extremely fast, wins nearly all headers he contests, and has an uncanny ability to time tackles in open space. Now if you had said caught out of position up field, you’d have had a case, but you didn’t.

He’s hands down the worst one v. one defender I’ve ever had the horror to root for.

Yes. He was on a number of transition breaks last season where he hawked down balls sent into space and easily beat the opposing defenders. He’s not Mata-fast, but Mata is probably the fastest guy on the team.
