Ron-Thorben Hoffmann: 6/10
No chance with any of the goals but did make a good save just before the fourth but no defender was following up to help him out. Let down massively by his defence today.
Carl Winchester: 2/10
Ball in behind Winchester caused the problem that led to the first goal and could not get going in such difficult conditions.
Tom Flanagan: 2/10
Worst game of the season for Flanagan, struggled with the conditions and no positives at all.
Bailey Wright: 1/10
Set the tone for the poor performance after he dawdled on the ball straight from kick off and got caught out, did not improve from there.
Dennis Cirkin: 2/10
Back from missing out due to concussion but, like his fellow defenders, really struggled with conditions. Had what was probably our best chance late on but the ball slowly rolled past the far post.
Luke O’Nien: 1/10
Very poor today. Took two free-kicks in really good positions but failed to test the goalkeeper with either and went down far too easily in the build up to the second Pompey goal.
Corry Evans: 1/10
Not a game to play football in midfield, he tried but unsurprisingly nothing came off and didn’t provide enough defensive cover.
Leon Dajaku: 2/10
Waterlogged pitch that was worse on the wings was never going to allow the winger a chance to shine.
Elliot Embleton: 2/10
Subbed at half-time after being anonymous in the first half.
Aiden O’Brien: 3/10
This is really not saying much but he was our best attacking outlet today, put a shift in but too often had the ball hold up underneath him.
Ross Stewart: 1/10
Completely anonymous today, comfortably his worst performance in a Sunderland shirt.
Callum Doyle: 2/10
Had no chance to impress in a back three when the wide left position was so waterlogged.
Alex Pritchard: 2/10
Replaced Dajaku on the hour mark but could not get into the game.
Dan Neil: 2/10
Got booked but otherwise unable to get into the game.
Man of the Match: Ron-Thorben Hoffmann
Made a couple of good saves and was very alert to stop a swift Pompey counter-attack but his man of the match award is testament to how poor the thirteen in front of him were in what was a day to forget.
