Irons v Villa: The Ratings

CollinsAdrian: No complaints about this performance. Did well whenever called on 6

Jenkinson: Always trying to get forward and make things happen 7

Reid: Is it just me or has he got other things on his mind? Never quite sure what you are gonna get these days 5

Collins (right) : Strong and commanding. Impressive performance 7

Cresswell: Another who looks good going forward but some defensive concerns 5

Song: Strong tackling and always busy but not one of his stand-out displays 5

Downing; Always a danger but wasted one great chance 6

Kouyate: Still coming back to his best after that injury lay-off 5

Noble: Missed an outstanding opportunity in an otherwise  middling performance

Sakho: Welcome back Diafra – non-stop endeavour but no goal. What’s going on? 6

Valencia: Subbed in the 78th minute by Cole. Some great footwork without real impact 5
