Fabianski: Quiet first-half and untroubled in the second 6
Ngakia: Impressive again. Confidence, awareness and quality 8
Diop: Didn’t let his performance drop faced with the reduced threat posed by Long and co 8
Ogbonna: Looking really strong and focused at the moment 8
Cresswell: Steady stuff. Didn’t over-commit going forwards 6
Fornals: Lots of effort, some sloppy control outweighed by a lovely through ball for Antonio 7
Rice: Comfortably the best central midfielder out there today 7
Noble: Put in an awful lot of work in the absence of Soucek, exposed at times 6
Bowen: Great run in behind and a quality finish – an excellent first start 8
Haller: Showed very unusual commitment to get his goal 7
Antonio: Much more effective with today’s support from Haller and Bowen, another full 90 mins and smashed in the third 8

Snodgrass: Introduced to give Bowen his deserved standing ovation, helped close out the win professionally 6
Anderson: On at the death for the win bonus   No rating

  1. Ngakia is an U23 we do not want to sell.
    Someone make sure he is on a long term
    Contract. Cole was right earlier this week when he said he has a good future.
    Your comments spot on Niall. At his age and experience I would give him a 9.

  2. And a 10 for Moyes. Team selection and tactics spot on. Cried when due.

  3. Credit when due.

    • To be fair I almost cried when I saw we FINALLY were putting out a more attacking line up! Been a long time coming.

  4. Fornals also supplied the pass for Bowens goal and with his goal at Enfield has had a very creditable week.
