Player Ratings

Darren Randolph
Not overly troubled and dealt with stuff quite comfortably.

Michail Antonio
Much better than last week but I?EUR(TM)m not as convinced as the manager as to the long-term viability of having him in that role.

Sam Byram

Winston Reid
Good solid runout for the Kiwi. Might have scored in the first half but couldn?EUR(TM)t keep an awkward volley down.

Reece Oxford
Wonderfully mature performance from the youngster. The extra games in the Europa League, should we qualify for the group stages, will stretch the squad somewhat so we may see more of him than last season.

Havard Nordtveit
Broke up play well and is another who can spot a through ball. Stronger tests to come but looks to be a good ?EUR~un on this showing.

Cheikhou Kouyate
Two very clever finishes added the icing to the cake of what was a MOTM performance.

Mark Noble
A typical Noble performance. Popped up here there and everywhere and the ball to Feghouli for the third was superb. Remind me again where he was this summer. And how England got on without him.

Andy Carroll
Not much in the way of goal threat personally but they were so afraid of him others were allowed to flourish.

Sofiane Feghouli
Fine goal ?EUR" eventually. Some superb runs but the finishing could have been better earlier on.

Enner Valencia
You had to feel for the lad. One moment a sublime piece of skill the next a horrible miss. I was reminded of Luis Boa Morte of a few years back ?EUR" when things were going wrong he just tried that little bit TOO hard.


Pedro Obiang
It took forever to get him on ?EUR" either the buzzer thing on ref no.2?EUR(TM)s arm wasn?EUR(TM)t working or ref no.1 walked off still wearing it. A quiet but effective ten minutes.

Domingos Quina
Only time for a couple of touches.

Ashley Fletcher
A couple of nice moments in a short cameo.
