Player Ratings

Jussi Jaaskelainen
Best game for us by far. Reminded me of how well he always played against us.

Guy Demel
Stuck to his task well throughout but he never seems to convince going forward.

Joey O Brien
Lennon didn?EUR(TM)t get a kick until he swapped sides.

James Collins
Not sure if it was a good game for Ginge or whether it was Adabeyor making him look good. A bit of both perhaps. Booked while Dembele got away with murder.

Winston Reid
Got the captain?EUR(TM)s armband when Nolan went off. Decent match.

Mo Diame
Decent first half. Faded second.

Gary O Neil
A lot of snapping and harrying but went missing a couple of times at crucial moments.

Joe Cole
Well taken goal and got through a lot of running. Booked while Dembele got away with murder.

Matt Jarvis
Looked dangerous in the first half. Less influential after the interval.

Kevin Nolan
Was looking sharp until Dembele?EUR(TM)s awful stamp put him out of the game.

Andy Carroll
Caused problems for the opposition throughout.


Matt Taylor
(Replaced Nolan, 35)
If only...

Emanuel Pogatetz
(Replaced Demel, 72)
Lennon hadn?EUR(TM)t had a kick all day. Until he took over at left back. Conned by Bale for the equaliser.

Jack Collison
(Replaced Diame, 84)
No real contribution.

Raphael Spiegel
Did not play.

Ricardo Vaz Te
Did not play.

Marouane Chamakh
Did not play.

Carlton Cole
Did not play.
