Danny Rose – 6/10
Danny Rose was reasonable going forward, but his positioning leaves much to be desired, and he frequently plays opposition attackers onside when the rest of the defensive line steps up. Did not complete anywhere near enough of his passes either.
Paulinho – 4/10
Paulinho is not a holding midfielder, and despite Tim Sherwood’s criticism of Sandro in recent weeks, he would have been a far more useful starter in this game.
Paulinho was also at fault for the second goal, with both he and Emmanuel Adebayor offering no presence in the wall for Stewart Downing’s free kick.
Gylfi Sigurdsson – 5/10
Gylfi Sigurdsson was completely anonymous, offering nothing to either attack or defence.
