Gomes (7) â€“ Good save in first half from Zamora. Took a knock when making that save and letâ€™s be kind and say that that explains his shit kicking.
Corluka (7) â€“ Never troubled by Duff or Gera. Supported Bentley well.
Bale (8) â€“ Outstanding attacking play again. Some odd decision making occasionally but overall excellent. Assou-Ekotto will struggle to get back in.
King (7) â€“ Coped easily with Zamora and lasted the full ninety minutes! Blimey!
Dawson (6) â€“ Played well defensively but Iâ€™ve knocked a point off for his persistent hoofing.
Bentley (7) â€“ Looks so much better when he ignores the fancy stuff and just plays the simple balls. Looked like heâ€™d been told to get stuck in judging by a number of his early tackles. Some good corners.
Huddlestone (6) â€“ Poor in 1st half, maybe still feeling his knock? Vastly improved in second.
Palacios (7) â€“ Fantastic in the second half I thought. Gave the ball away too much in the first.
Modric (9) â€“ Superb tonight, a constant threat especially when combining with Bale.
Defoe (6) â€“ Worked hard but never at the races. Struggled against the big men at the back for Fulham and rarely found space. One shot I think. My mate blames Jordan.
Crouch (7) â€“ Another good workmanlike performance. Took his goal very neatly.
