Player Ratings

Adrian San Miguel Del Castillo
Made a number of good saves and, whilst the corner that led to their second may have been going wide, it was close enough to worry about so we?EUR(TM)ll give him that one.


Carl Jenkinson
Another so so game. There were spells when he looked great, others when he seemed to lack concentration.


Aaron Cresswell
Had his moments going forward but had some shaky oned as well in defence.


Winston Reid
The pick of the defenders ?EUR" again ?EUR" though he struggled against sub Mbokani who jumped at Reid pretty much every time they clashed.


James Tomkins
Reasonable game but we?EUR(TM)ll draw a veil over that shot from 30 yards shall we?


Cheikhou Kouyate
Kept plugging away and might have had more than the one goal that he got.


Mark Noble
The passing game was not up to scratch today. Got a lot of break-up challenges in but was culpable to one extent or another for both goals.


Victor Moses
Created one chance for Sakho but otherwise a quiet game.


Manuel Lanzini
Another not quite up to the heights he can reach but still not a bad game until he was subbed.


Dimitri Payet
Not quite as dominant as he has been of late but still at the heart of all our good moments. MOTM


Diafra Sakh0
The work he puts in is astounding. Held the ball up well and brought others into play.



Substitutes

Andy Carroll
(Replaced) Still not quite there and who else held their breath when he went down in the second half. However, he caused a major nuisance and his presence led to the equaliser.


Padro Obiang



Mauro Zarate
(Replaced) Looked sharp when he was on which made me wonder how things would have transpired had he come on earlier


Darren Randolph
Did not play.


James Collins
Did not play.


Michael Antonio
Did not play.


Nikica Jelavic
Did not play.
