- Almunia 8
One great save from Yakubu and saved our a$$ a couple of times too. Turning out to be a very solid and consistent goalkeeper.
- Song 6
Poor as a rightback but fared better at centreback. Still not the finished article but is learning. Nearly had a costly error which might have ended up in a goal.
- Toure 6
Solid till went off injured.
- Silvestre 8
Coped well with the long balls and was the best defender all night.
- Clichy 7
Managed to keep his cool and was near his high standards.
- Eboue 7
Don’t want to talk about the first half. When at rightback, looked a much better player. Contributes more in attack when he plays in defence.
- Denilson 6
Tried hard but no outcome. Was solid in possession.
- Fabregas 6
Subdued. A few passes were poor but still made our team tick.
- Nasri 8
Impressive throughout and scored a goal noone else in the team wanted to score. Unfortunate about the injury. The commentator said he was a “deceptively strong player”.
- Adebayor 6
Did ok but should have at least did better with his chances.
- Van Persie 7
Missed the goal from 6 yards out but redeemed himself with the goal. Should have gotten a penalty.
- Walcott 8
No doubt was the difference. Was involved throughout and created space for other players. Really well taken goal too.
