Costel Pantilimon – 6
Made two one on one stops when Watford counter attacked late on.
DeAndre Yedlin– 4
Brought off after 17 minutes in a tactical change. However Yedlin was poor and gave the ball away constantly.
Billy Jones– 5
Involved down the right side throughout however the end product wasn’t good enough
Seb Coates – 5
Cleared the ball off the line in the first half and tracked back to deny Ighalo in the dying stages.
John O’Shea – 5
Ighalo turned him inside out in the first half, but O’Shea recovered in the second half and did ok.
Patrick Van Aanholt– 6
Tried his best going forward all day and overall a solid performance
Yann M’Vila – 5
The game was far too open in the early stages and too many misplaced passes gave Watford far too many chances. Not one of M’Vila’s best outings.
Ola Toivonen – 4
Created nothing and didn’t make any influence on the game.
Fabio Borini– 4
Created very little and seemed to spend more time laying on the ground.
Duncan Watmore– 6
Tried his best throughout running at defenders and had a shot from long range go close in the second half.
Steven Fletcher– 6
Showed plenty of effort but squandered a couple of opportunities by not using his right foot.
Jack Rodwell– 6 (Sub)
Looked better than he has in previous outings. He had a shot saved by Gomes and he was involved in play a lot more than usual.
Adam Johnson– 5 (Sub)
Tried to create but found himself too far away from goal and the ball was being threw into the box so Johnson didn’t have much to go on.
Jermain Defoe– 6 (Sub)
The service into him wasn’t fantastic so he had very little to work with. He scored an offside goal and also forced Gomes into a wonder save late on.
