Player Ratings

Jussi Jaaskelainen
Made some decent saves. I suppose if he'd stayed on his feet we'd just have seen Oscar booked as he ought to have been anyway but it's a bit harsh to blame him for a rather tawdry bit of cheating by an opponent.


Guy Demel
A good run in the second half but it was his blunder that allowed Oscar's dive to take place.


Joey O Brien
A bit all over the place and his distribution wasn't up to much today.


James Collins
Oh dear.


James Tomkins
The best of the defenders, not that that was saying much.


Mark Noble
Work hard enough but had a frustrating evening and ended up down too many blind alleys for my liking.


Jack Collison
Looked all at sea until withdrawn before half time.


Stewart Downing
Looked good occasionally when we fed him. We didn't feed him enough.


Joe Cole
Had one (blocked) shot but failed to make any significant contribution up to the point he was replaced.


Ravel Morrison
Some bright runs but they were few and far between.


Kevin Nolan
Can't remember anything he did to be honest. Other than getting substituted. Which is fairly remarkable for him I suppose.



Substitutes

Mo Diame
Failed to take the match by the throat like last season. I guess the sponsors had to give an MOTM to someone but I'm struggling to think why it should be him. Or anyone.


Modibo Maiga
That miss will have done his confidence no good at all. Shame really as a goal then might have seen us get back into the game.


Matt Jarvis
Had pretty much the same effect as the man he replaced really.


Adrian
Did not play.


George McCartney
Did not play.


Matthew Taylor
Did not play.


Carlton Cole
Did not play.
