Player Ratings

Adrian San Miguel Del Castillo
Always difficult to give a meaningful mark to a ?EUR~keeper who ultimately had one shot ?EUR" the penalty ?EUR" to deal with. He nearly saved that as well.

Carl Jenkinson
The finish for the goal was better than one might have expected from a right back. A bit unlucky with the penalty.

Aaron Cresswell
Not really tested, especially after the sending-off. Got forward well throughout.

James Collins
A couple of shaky moments early on but had a fine second half when he kept the luckless Bolasie under lock and key.

James Tomkins
Coped well with the Palace attack in the first half and just had mopping up to do in the second half.

Cheikhou Kouyate
Is it me or will Song have a job to get into our midfield when he finally regains fitness?

Mark Noble
As I say he didn?EUR(TM)t do anything wrong, per se, it was just that his particular talents were surplus to requirements in the second half.

Victor Moses
Odd one really he drifted in and out of things but to his credit it was his clever ball that set up Jenkinson for the first.

Manuel Lanzini

Dimitri Payet
Another decent game for a player who, according to those responsible for the French national team, isn?EUR(TM)t as good as Cabaye. Part of me is glad, given our habit of seeing players come back from international duty with injuries, however that must be one hell of a squad they have over the channel.

Diafra Sakho
Worked his socks off yet again with little reward other than keeping things live up front.


Andy Carroll
(Replaced) Asked a different type of question of the Palace defence, one to which, ultimately, they had no answer.

Mauro Zarate
(Replaced) A few of the usual blind alleys but his cross that led up to the goal was superb.

Nikica Jelavic
(Replaced) Two touches worthy of note. One set up Lanzini for the second. The other earned him a daft yellow for kicking the ball away towards the end.

Darren Randolph
Did not play.

Angelo Ogbonna
Did not play.

Pedro Obiang
Did not play.

Enner Valencia
Did not play.
