Made some great first half saves/interceptions, but just got a bit sloppy towards the end when he thought the game was won.

Another solid, consistent performance from the best right back in the league.

Caught out with a ball over the top at the end, but otherwise pretty much immaculate against a fairly non-threatening Fulham side.

Tops again, tackles 4/4, clearances 11/11, and he was up Berbatov's arse like the star of Backdoor Sluts IV (so we're told).

Another good display from the Spaniard who got up and down the line all day long and put in some great deliveries from the left hand side.

I loved him today. He had a 98% pass completion rate, but he was brilliantly sly with some of his fouling/blocking which he got away with every time.

Did well and was always looking to try and create something in the final third. It didn't always come off but gets a nice assist for Santi's opener.

Not the kind of performance that will convince the doubters but was always available and looking to get involved. Relax folks, he'll come good. The fact he's playing poorly doesn't mean he's a poor player, and it's certainly not an excuse for people to go mental or start fights. Apart from for those people who want any excuse to go mental or start fights, but what can you do about them anyway?

It's hard to remember sometimes this lad is just 18. It shows in some of his decision making, but he's always positive, looking for a chance to test the keeper. Had 4 shots from increasingly decent positions, but only one of them required a save.

Even if his passing is still somewhat wayward, he stepped up when required today. Two goals, 2-0, three points. Gracias Santi!

Worked hard, as always, didn't really get much in the way of service against two big centre-halves, and struggled to create anything clear cut for himself.

Got on and showed the boss what he's about. Could have scored with practically his first touch but for a great block, and saw a blistering shot pushed onto the post.

Not really on long enough to rate, had a half chance at the end from a Cazorla cross.

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 - That bit when Flamini cracked his knee off Sidwell's then stood on his toe. Hilarious fun to watch a snide player like Sidwell get some back.
