Player Ratings

Darren Randolph
Nutmegged for their first. Fouled for their second. Not much to do in between.


Cheikhou Kouyate
Also nutmegged for their first. An otherwise decent runout in the problem right-back slot.


Aaron Cresswell
Still not quite back to his best. Sacrificed to change to a three-at-the-back system for the second half.


Winston Reid
Like the rest of defence his main duty was to mop up the clearances from the back and send it forward. Did so with his usual efficiency.


Jose Fonte
See Reid. Close to scoring when he nearly got a touch on the Snodgrass free-kick that Foster saved.


Pedro Obiang
His usual reliable self. Not always catching of the eye but dependable nevertheless.


Michail Antonio
A willing runner both up front and at wing back. Looked better in the latter position though.


Mark Noble
Has often been responsible for halting the momentum of an attack by checking and turning away from an early ball. However, this was much better as he kept looking forward.


Robert Snodgrass
Useful dead-ball delivery. Looks to be a useful addition to the side. Watch him get injured for that third world country he plays for.


Manuel Lanzini
Beginning to emerge from the shadow of that bloke who used to play for us. Constantly teasing and probing. Unlucky not to notch a double.


Sofiane Feghouli
Odd sort of game for him really. Went from anonymous to the centre of attention and the goal really seemed to perk him up.



Substitutes

Jonathan Calleri
(Replaced Cresswell) Got into good positions occasionally but his decision-making was below standard. Should have had a penalty though.


Edimilson Fernandes
(Replaced Snodgrass) A late introduction so little chance to influence matters.


James Collins
(Replaced Feghouli) An even later introduction so even less chance to shine.


Adrian San Miguel Del Castillo
Did not play.


Sam Byram
Did not play.


Havard Nordtveit
Did not play.


Ashley Fletcher
Did not play.
