He got lots of damage, poke it with basic and always go with potions, and if he engage, throw your E and try to Snare him.
His Q shouldn't be a great trouble, because your damage aren't your basics, poke him with your Q and always carry potions by his poison.
Keep distance and poke it with basics. Don't spend too much mana in him, and keep eye when it uses his Q to hit you, Silence him and don't stay close to him when he got his Ultimate.
This means danger, avoid to get a duel because is a garanted defeat, the main reason is beacuse is one of the best duelists on the entire game. Try to silence him on your position if he jumps in you and always keep an eye on the enemy jungler.
