Player Ratings

Robert Green
Looked a bit out of position on a couple of crosses. He'll probably tell you Adam's long range effort was covered ?EUR" I'm not convinced. Good save from Cathcart at the end though.

Lars Jacobsen
Not his best effort in the Claret & Blue. Varney caused him problems.

Herita Ilunga
Not a patch on the player of a couple of years ago. I suspect a spell on the bench will be the order of the day once Da Costa is fit again.

Danny Gabbidon
Seemed to lack a bit of urgency for some reason ?EUR" didn't seem tight enough to his man on occasion.

Matthew Upson
The pick of the back four ?EUR" not that there was much competition for the title this week.

Scott Parker
At the heart of all that was good. Yet again. MOTM.

Mark Noble
Remarkable effort to come straight off the operating table and play so well.

Luis Boa Morte
Ok he had a poor game going forward ?EUR" but he put in a lot of hard work defensively which went unnoticed by many. Once more he didn't hide.

Kieron Dyer
Hamstring again. Apparently.

Victor Obinna
Frustrating. One minute he goes forward and you think that he's a world-beater. Then he shoots when he should pass and passes when he should shoot.

Frederic Piquionne
Not his greatest game. Got into some good positions but his touch was lacking.


Pablo Barrera
(Replaced Dyer, 18 mins) Another who frustrates. Showed some good touches but got caught offside too many times.

Carlton Cole
(Replaced Boa Morte, 71 mins) Missed a sitter. That's about it really.

Benni McCarthy
(Replaced Piquionne, 82 mins) Came on and disappeared again.

Marek Stech
Did not play.

Jonathan Spector
Did not play.

James Tomkins
Did not play.

Radoslav Kovac
Did not play.
