Gomes 5 â€“ Didnâ€™t have much chance with the goals, and made some decent saves. However there were a worrying number of spills (which he wonâ€™t get away with another time).
Hutton 3 â€“ Awful defending for the first goal, and a number of silly runs down blind alleys. His continued lack of understanding with Lennon is enough to justify a spell on the bench in my opinion.
Dawson 1 â€“ Must go down as the worst game of his career. Two awful decisions which effectively cost us the game.
Bassong 2 â€“ His game was summed up by the fresh air kick that he had at the ball in his own box. Lost his man for the third goal, and was beaten like he wasnâ€™t there for the fourth (before ambling back as if he didnâ€™t care). Not a good day for him.
Assou-Ekotto 4 â€“ Whilst he didnâ€™t have a particularly good game, he wasnâ€™t particularly bad either.
Sandro 5 â€“ Itâ€™s pretty unfair to rate him â€“ needless to say that taking him off was the wrong move, and Dembeleâ€™s run for the fourth goal was evidence enough of that.
Modric 7 â€“ Kept going, and was one of the only players to show a creative spark. We should have kept Sandro on to allow him to have an influence further up the pitch.
Lennon 3 â€“ Very quiet game, not helped by being messed around positionally.
Pienaar 3 â€“ Poor game â€“ tried too many first-time flicks and passes, which didnâ€™t really come off. Iâ€™d have taken him off for Gallas, and I was very surprised that he was kept on for the full 90.
Van der Vaart 3 â€“ Another lacklustre performance from a player whose form has taken a nose-dive since the Villa game. We canâ€™t expect to get the best out of him by playing out of sorts strikers alongside him.
Defoe 3 â€“ Offered very little, and was rightly substituted. But the wrong man was brought on…
Gallas 4 â€“ Best of the three centre backs, but that doesnâ€™t say much.
Crouch 2 â€“ I will be interested to see his Chalkboard stats for passes completed. Offered no goal threat â€“ clumsily failed to control the one chance that came his way, allowing Hughes to step in.
Jenas 5 â€“ Didnâ€™t have enough time to make an impact, but had a good effort from distance, and cleared one of the line.
Redknapp 3 â€“ Obviously he canâ€™t legislate for individual errors, but the casual approach from the entire team, coupled with the strange system and dreadful use of substitutes (again) didnâ€™t help.
