Player Ratings

Adrian San Miguel Del Castillo
The defence seems much steadier with him behind them. Two magnificent saves and the moment he saved a corner and had a rest was pure Adrian gold.

Sam Byram
Joined the attack well and didn?EUR(TM)t look too shabby in defence either.

Aaron Cresswell
Negated anything coming down his side and linked well with the attack. His cross caused the havoc that led to the goal.

James Collins
Stuck to what he does best, and was all the better for it.

Jose Fonte
Continues to look much better as part of a three.

Winston Reid
Superb. Absolutely superb.

Mark Noble
This mattered to him ?EUR" and it showed.

Cheikhou Kouyate
Immense. If he?EUR(TM)d gotten his feet sorted out in the first half he might have had a goal for all his efforts. MOTM for me.

Andre Ayew
Lots of running. Kept at their midfield and defence. Caused a spot of confusion for the goal.

Manuel Lanzini
Superb. Not the prettiest of goals but that?EUR(TM)ll probably bother him about as little as it bothers the rest of us.

Jonathan Calleri
Got a lot of unjustified stick from some around me. Ran all over the place and was unlucky not to get the goal his efforts deserved. The ovation he got was heartening showing that his hard work had not gone unnoticed by the home support.


Robert Snodgrass
(Replaced Ayew) Combined well with Fletcher at the end.

Ashley Fletcher
(Replaced Calleri) Could, nay should have scored at the end.

Edimilson Fernandes
(Replaced Lanzini) Brief cameo at the end ?EUR" did well enough.

Darren Randolph
Did not play.

Havard Nordtveit
Did not play.

Sofiane Feghouli
Did not play.

Declan Rice
Did not play.
