Tom Huddlestone - Header

Cudicini (9) – Kept us in it early on, some top quality shot stopping

Naughton (7) – Pretty solid full debut. Loads of speed and has a very confident and heads up air about him going forward.

Hutton (6) – Out of position at left back and later at centre half so unfair to lay into him too much but it all looked a bit of a struggle.

Corluka (7) – Much more assured in the middle than last week at Hull. Only one of the likely starters against Birmingham to play the full 90.

Bassong (6) – Completely bamboozled by what was going on for the opening period of the game. Not authoritative enough.

Bentley (7) – Made two goals and scored a third. Set piece delivery a good deal more dangerous than Luka’s. Gives the ball away far far too often and too easily with casual flicks and bad decision making. Made a difference though.

Huddlestone (8) – Excellent passing all night. Great awareness for his goal which he took superbly.

O’Hara (6) – Sucked into the general mess on the left early on, much improved as we gained control.

Giovani (7) – Played wide on the left. Lots of skill of course. His direct running should definitely make Harry think that he’s worth persisting with on the bench at least.

Crouch (7) – Worked non-stop and put himself about. Combined with the midfield well and doesn’t mind being called Rodney Trotter. Nice header for his goal.

Pavlyuchenko (6) – The odd glimpse of quality but not a performance that is going to make Redknapp rush to start him. No signs of forming a partnership with Crouch.
