Scroll to continue with content

Lukasz Fabiański 6

Got away with one over disallowed goal after flapping at cross and otherwise unworked until smart block to deny Pukki late on and preserve clean sheet.

Vladimir Coufal 6

Produced outrageous first-time cross on volley for Fornals chance, though flag would have ruled it out.

Craig Dawson 7

Important block to deny Gilmour volley and aerial presence key to winning penalty before limping off injured.

Kurt Zouma 7

Marshalled Pukki with ease until late chances but will have had more taxing days sat on the sofa.

Aaron Cresswell 6

Quietly solid, which was probably just the ticket after Frankfurt red card.

Declan Rice 7

Commanding as ever in midfield even without his Czech mate alongside him, then slotted in at centre-back.

Pablo Fornals 7

Classy display and a menace with late runs into the box that often went untracked.

Manuel Lanzini 7

Started in a deeper role in Soucek’s absence but soon realised lack of Norwich threat and enjoyed himself. Cool penalty.

Said Benrahma 8

Opened the scoring with deflected effort and then effectively ended game as a contest with superb finish before half-time.

Jarrod Bowen 8

Shifted ball smartly for opener, before pass in behind created the second and then assisted the third, as well. Has 20 goal involvements in a superb league campaign.

Michail Antonio 7

First league goal since New Year’s Day was an absolute gift but forced off at half-time still feeling effects of hefty Hanley tackle.


Andriy Yarmolenko (Antonio 46’) 6

Led line after Antonio departure but rarely threatened.

Mark Noble (Dawson 67) 6

Given a cameo on 35th birthday, to delight of travelling support.

Nikola Vlasic (Benrahma 75’)

Unused: Areola, Johnson, Masuaku, Fredericks, Soucek, Kral
