Player Ratings

Darren Randolph
One shot to save all day but his failure to command at the corner at the end worried me a bit.


Sam Byram
Fine performance. Good in defence and got forward well. I think I?EUR(TM)ll give him MOTM.


Arthur Masuaku
The lack of attacking threat from the visitors allowed him to get forward well.


James Collins
Only caught for pace once and thankfully they didn?EUR(TM)t twig. For the rest of the match they played to his strengths. Did well to not get sunburn.


Jose Fonte
A nice comfortable afternoon for the centre half who probably needed one of those.


Cheikhou Kouyate
Solid in the middle and notched a superb goal.


Andre Ayew
Came into the game as it progressed but should have scored late on.


Mark Noble
Decent turn out for the skipper. The harsh booking will give him an extra week off thanks to it being his tenth of the season.


Robert Snodgrass
One of those who tries too hard when, as at present, things aren?EUR(TM)t going exactly to plan. Nice little pass around the corner for Kouyate?EUR(TM)s goal might convince him of the merits of simplicity.


Manuel Lanzini
As ever he was the focal point of creativity in a match that was rather short of the stuff. I do not want to see him dive again though.


Michail Antonio
Unlucky son. If that knock is as serious as it looks that might well be it for the season unfortunately.



Substitutes

Jonathan Calleri
I could see the point of bringing him on ahead of Carroll or Sakho in that we were set up to have more mobility up front. And to that end he did well working his socks off to keep the visiting defence occupied. Needs confidence with his finishing though.


Sofiane Feghouli
Ran about a bit to little effect.


Edimilson Fernades
Another cameo that gave him little chance to shine.


Adrian San Miguel Del Castillo
Did not play.


Havard Nordtveit
Did not play.


Diafra Sakho
Did not play.


Andy Carroll
Did not play.
