Player Ratings

Jussi Jaaskelainen
The ref touched the ball more than he did. He should have thawed out in time for the Arsenal match.


Guy Demel
Not really tested but got forward well.


Joey O Brien
Same as Demel ?EUR" not the hardest of afternoons at the back and he got forward to keep things ticking over.


James Tomkins
A cold afternoon ?EUR" warmed himself up by clattering Traore later on. Failed to heed the warnings that Remy might beat the offside trap early on.


Winston Reid
Played Remy onside for the goal despite the aforementioned warnings.


Mo Diame
A busy game but still seems to be easing his way back.


Mark Noble
Seemed more worried about Taarabt than he ought to have been in the early stages of the game. Didn?EUR(TM)t dominate the match.


Joe Cole
Nice bit of poaching for the goal. Beginning to influence matches but it?EUR(TM)s still early days.


Matt Jarvis
Saw a lot of the ball and sometimes looked dangerous. Sometimes not.


Kevin Nolan
Should have scored in the first half but rarely looked like doing so otherwise.


Marouane Chamakh
Some good touches but lacked the physical presence that might have seen him cause more of a threat.



Substitutes

Carlton Cole
(Replaced Chamakh, 62)
Caused a bigger threat and it was his header that led to the goal.


Ricardo Vaz Te
(Replaced Nolan, 89)
Three minutes was hardly enough time to make an impression.


Raphael Spiegel
Did not play.


Danny Potts
Did not play.


Alou Diarra
Did not play.


Jack Collison
Did not play.


Matt Taylor
Did not play.
