Gomes (7) â€“ Little to do, coped well with the deep crosses and long throws.
Corluka (6) â€“ Kept Etherington out of the game, skilful as ever but a game where more zip was needed going forward.
Assou-Ekotto (5) â€“ Not his best game, his crossing should be so much better. Looked weary when beaten by Fuller for the goal.
Woodgate (7) â€“ A quarter of an hour on his comeback, ten minutes of it with concussion. Nice to see him back.
Dawson (7) â€“ Came on for Woodgate and gave his all as ever. His distribution skills could still do with a polish.
Bassong (7) â€“ Coped much better than expected with the big blokes. Composed when in possession
Lennon (8) â€“ Skilful and dangerous, many good crosses, most of them towards where the aberrant and absent Defoe wouldâ€™ve been. Starved of service in second half.
Huddlestone (6) â€“ Over ambitious with his passing sometimes.
Palacios (8) â€“ Excellent disciplined tackling and careful when in possession.
Kranjcar (7) â€“ Another good skilful performance, unlucky with shot that hit post.
Keane (5) â€“ Had some good patches in first half but as happens too often these days he was no goal threat.
Crouch (7) â€“ Kept going until the end, was the main victim of the man of the match display from chubster Simonsen.
