Player Ratings

Darren Randolph
Thought he could have done better for their first.

Sam Byram
A good match ?EUR" particularly going forward when he kept the pressure on in the second half.

Aaron Cresswell
One for whom the break will do a power of good. Ok-ish defensively but gave the ball away a bit too often which relieved the pressure on the visitors.

Winston Reid
Not quite sure what an abductor is but he has done his. Looked painful.

Jose Fonte
Got lost for their second and third goals. The reshuffle didn?EUR(TM)t help but he should have adapted quicker.

Pedro Obiang
Dug in and gave as good as he got against the Leicester midfield. Hope the ankle?EUR(TM)s ok.

Michail Antonio
Strong and powerful on the run, always caused problems.

Cheikhou Kouyate
Two positions in the one match. Took him a while to settle in the centre of defence.

Andy Carroll
Gave Leicester a lot to think about when the service was right. Unlucky not to get on the sheet.

Manuel Lanzini
At the heart of all the good stuff that we did. Fine free-kick. MOTM.

Andre Ayew
Decent second half in particular. However he really ought to have added a second.


Robert Snodgrass
(Replaced Reid) Didn?EUR(TM)t make much of an impression when on for Reid.

Edimilson Fernandes
(Replaced Obiang) Kept the forward impetus going when replaced Obiang

Arthur Masuaku
(Replaced Carroll) Much better going forward than Cresswell who he replaced. Not really tested defensively. Perhaps we need an Arfur/Cresswell hybrid?

Adrian San Miguel Del Castillo
Did not play.

James Collins
Did not play.

Havard Nordtveit
Did not play.

Sofiane Feghouli
Did not play.
