Jordan Pickford - 7

The only player to come out of the game with any credit. Made some decent saves to keep the score down, and his distribution was top notch as per usual. Couldn't have done much for the three goals, which all came as a result of our abysmal defending.

Patrick Van Aanholt - 5

Contributed nothing going forward and was fairly quiet all afternoon.

Papy Djilobodji - 6

Unlucky not to score when Fabianski tipped over his header late in the game.

Lamine Kone - 4

His decent first half display was overshadowed by his appalling second. Made no attempt to stop Llorente for Swansea's second - has to do better.

Billy Jones - 3

Suffered without Watmore in front of him. Montero beat him far too easily for the third and he spurned an easy chance when the game was 0-0 by trying to pass to Defoe instead of shooting when the goal was in front of him.

Didier Ndong - 3

I'm a fan of the lad but he was terrible - made too many poor forward passes, picked up a stupid yellow and will now miss the Chelsea game as a result.

Sebastian Larsson - 4

Harried and pressed Swansea but had absolutely zero impact on the game.

Jason Denayer - 2

His worst game for us. An absolute afternoon to forget - jumping with his arms up in the box is unforgivable.

Steven Pienaar - 0

What's the f**king point?

Victor Anichebe - 6

Fed off scraps. Why he was asked to spend most of the game on the right when he linked up so well with Van Aanholt last weekend is completely beyond me.

Jermain Defoe - 5

Missed a few of the half chances he had, but the midfield gave him nothing really.

Adnan Januzaj - 0

Send him back. What a waste of a shirt.

Jan Kirchhoff - 5

Barely noticed he was playing. Should have came on at half time.

Javier Manquillo - 5

Was only brought on to keep the score down.
