Player Ratings

Joe Hart
Scored points mainly for managing to avoid hypothermia as the heavens opened in the first half. And that save he made.


Pablo Zabaleta
A wily old head. Doesn?EUR(TM)t look out of place as a wing-back.


Aaron Cresswell
The problem is that, yes the defensive stuff was ok and, yes he got into some promising positions. But boy his delivery was dreadful in this match. Crossing practice required I think.


Winston Reid
Dealt with what little threat the home side could be bothered to pose.


James Collins
Ankle ligaments is the diagnosis. Fingers crossed it?EUR(TM)s nothing too serious.


Jose Fonte
Huddersfield was his best game in the shirt. This wasn?EUR(TM)t as good as that but he still looked comfortable.


Pedro Obiang
Goal of the season candidate had that shot gone in. Tried another effort from distance later on. With slightly less impressive results.


Cheikhou Kouyate
A solid if unspectacular turn in the middle. Got stuck in, broke up play, that sort of thing.


Michail Antonio
Probably shaded it for MOTM, though in truth it was all much of a muchness today. His direct running caused a few problems.


Javier Hernandez
I don?EUR(TM)t know if it?EUR(TM)s by instruction, a function of the system or just down to the player himself but with Carroll on the pitch it seems a bit of a waste to have him stuck out on the touchline. The Foster incident showed how this could be developed as a partnership with just a little thought.


Andy Carroll
Caused problems for the home defence. Unfortunately, he and Chicharito haven?EUR(TM)t quite built up that understanding yet.



Substitutes

Marko Arnautovic
Struggling to remember any meaningful contribution


Andre Ayew
Same as Arnautovic really...


Diafra Sakho
His mobility might have asked a few different questions of the home defence had he been given more than a few minutes to try and influence matters.


Adrian San Miguel Del Castillo
Did not play.


Arthur Masuaku
Did not play.


Angelo Ogbonna
Did not play.


Declan Rice
Injured during warm-up.
