Player Ratings

Adrian San Miguel Del Castillo (7) Left exposed for the goal. Not sure he had a shot to save after that.

Sam Byram (7) Looked ok Ė particularly going forward.

Aaron Cresswell (6) Will be glad to get this season out of the way. Decent run-out but an injury-free pre-season will be key for him. So as long as he can avoid two-bob German second division defenders wanting to make a name for themselves that would be nice.

James Collins (6) A couple of heart in mouth moments interspersed with strong defending. Typical Ginge really.

Jose Fonte (6) Won a lot of ball even if he didnít then have an awful lot of a clue as to what to do with it.

Angelo Ogbonna (6) Some good blocks in there and played some good football. However, he did look a lot like a player who had been out for a month or two and was well off the pace at times.

Edimilson Fernandes (7) Mature performance from one of the better signings of the season.

Robert Snodgrass (5) Canít think of any significant contribution in this match.

Andre Ayew (7) Great work for the first. Poacherís eye for the second and provided a lot of threat on the ball. MOTM.

Manuel Lanzini (7) Classiest act on the pitch in a match that was desperately short of class. Just pipped for MOTM by Ayew.

Sofiane Feghouli (7) Enjoyed himself. Apart from the goal he caused Burnley a few problems.


Ashley Fletcher (6) (Replaced Snodgrass) No real time to do much.

Declan Rice (6) (Replaced Fernandes) A couple of good touches in a brief cameo. Hopefully first of many for the lad.

Darren Randolph (6) Did not play.

Dan Kemp (0) Did not play.

Moses Makasi (0) Did not play.
