Player Ratings vs Peterborough United


Jermain Defoe - Header

Gomes (8) – A fine save after an hour. Continues to exude a sort of eccentric confidence.

Hutton (7) – Made good of use of the room in front of him on the right.

Bale (8) – But not as good as Bale did on the left. Nice shot in the first half and two lovely cut backs for goals two and three.

Dawson (8) – Never missed anything at the back and even opened up play with some nice distribution.

Bassong (7) – Another confident display. Cameroon’s loss…

Modric (7) – Started on the right but drifted all over the shop. Some intelligent waspish play as ever but needs more match practice.

Palacios (7) – Seems to have recaptured his form over Christmas.

Huddlestone (8) – Played with great confidence and skill, pulled the strings in midfield.

Kranjcar (9) – Things move up a gear when he gets the ball. Great quick feet plus directness and vision.

Keane (6) – Well taken penalty and lots of good runs into space but again his loss of pace was the most notable feature of his game.

Defoe (7) – Took goal well and lots of good running as normal. Taken off hurt at the end but hopefully nothing serious.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Ok with the ratings. What is eccentric confidence ? Fotget all the guffs last year, Gomes is a CONFIDENT and excellent keeper. One of the best in the business
