Player Ratings

Adrian San Miguel del Castillo
He'll have busier days but when required he was not found wanting.

Carl Jenkinson
The lack of attacking threat from the opposition enabled him to get forward almost at will.

Aaron Cresswell
Like Jenkinson he made good use of the opportunity to get forward.

Winston Reid
Did what he had to do with a minimum of fuss

James Tomkins
Easy day at the back and did very well for the second goal.

Alex Song
If there's a blade of grass that he didn't cover I must have missed it. Got the sponsors' MOTM but missed out on mine by a whisker...

Stewart Downing
I've probably said this before but at Villa and Liverpool when he was being given England caps a-plenty I really couldn't see what the fuss was about. However this season he is a new man. Some of the passing today was a joy to behold. MOTM.

Morgan Amalfitano
A little bit in and out of the game he provided some nice touches.

Mauro Zarate
Again, some good touches but faded as the game wore on.

Diafra Sakho
Apart from the goal he was another who worked his socks off. Five out of five? That'll do nicely.

Enner Valencia
Got through a prodigious amount of work and the visiting midfield knew they'd been in a game.


Kevin Nolan
(Replaced Zarate) Ok, he ought to have scored but booing him for coming on? Really?

Matt Jarvis
(Replaced Valencia) Had a lively few minutes at the end on his return from injury.

Jussi Jaaskelainen
Did not play.

Reece Burke
Did not play.

Diego Poyet
Did not play.

Elliot Lee
Did not play.

Carlton Cole
Did not play.
