Player Ratings

Darren Randolph
Rarely tested but the gap he left at the near post for their second was as big as the one between Rooney?EUR(TM)s ears.

Michail Antonio
This is when it works with him at RB. When we are concentrating on pushing forward and dominating matches. Marvellous header for the equaliser.

Aaron Cresswell
Got caught out a bit for their first but the value of his decoy run for Antonio?EUR(TM)s goal should not be underestimated.

Winston Reid
His name will now go down in history!

Angelo Ogbonna
Another impressive game. He has improved a lot over the course of the season.

Cheikhou Kouyate
Another stormer. Last season he was often left out for Alex Song. How many of us would want that this year?

Mark Noble
MOTM ?EUR" it was like he was taking the whole move thing personally. Rumours that the England squad announcement has been delayed while Hodgson tries to come up with a plausible excuse for leaving him at home this summer are probably quite true. Something to ponder as you watch Danny Drinkwater in an England shirt?EUR?.

Dimitri Payet
Even when the free-kicks aren?EUR(TM)t going in he has a massive influence on proceedings. Ask Antonio and Reid!

Manuel Lanzini
Some fine work for the goal but overall a little on the quiet side.

Diafra Sakho
Slight deflection for the goal but he was in the position to get the shot in in the first place. Looked a little more himself than he has done of late.

Andy Carroll
Kept the visiting defence honest throughout.


Pedro Obiang
A few minutes at the end to back up the win.

James Tomkins
Cameo appearance similar to that of Obiang

Enner Valencia
Not much time to influence things

Adrian San Miguel Del Castillo
Did not play.

Joey O'Brien
Did not play.

Alex Song
Did not play.

Victor Moses
Did not play.
