I guess a billion quid buys you a lot of referee, eh Roman?

Player Ratings

Adrian San Miguel Del Castillo
No chance with either of the goals. Indulged in some slightly worrying ball juggling in the first half but that was largely due to having to cope with a difficult back pass.


Michail Antonio
Better going forward than defensively but stuck to the task as best he could.


Aaron Cresswell
Fairly sound defensively but perhaps ought to have notched a brace.


Angelo Ogbonna
Good display from a defender who is becoming a reliable base for the back four.


Winston Reid
Not quite back to his best after his injury problems.


Cheikhou Kouyate
Played the sheet anchor in front of the defence. MOTM for me.


Mark Noble
Operated further forward than usual but was a bit profligate with the ball on occasion.


Enner Valencia
Struggled to make an impression going forward but did chip in with some good tracking-back.


Manuel Lanzini
Fine goal and some excellent link up play throughout before tiring a bit in the second half.


Dimitri Payet
Another game in which he wasn?EUR(TM)t as dominant as he can be. Still played a part in both goals though.


Diafra Sakho
Showed good movement and would have needed to have been shot before gaining a free-kick from the constantly illegal attentions of Terry.



Substitutes

Andy Carroll
(Replaced Sakho, 59) Well taken goal and brought others into the game well.


Emmanuel Emenike
(Replaced Valencia, 75) Showed some nice attacking moves down the right.


Pedro Obiang
(Replaced Lanzini 81) Solid cameo in the few minutes he was on.


Darren Randolph
Did not play.


Michael Antonio
Did not play.


Enner Valencia
Did not play.


Nikica Jelavic
Did not play.
