Didn't have a lot to do but perhaps by not having a man on the post for the corner they scored from he could have helped prevent their goal.

Not a bad debut but needs to realise he can go backwards/sideways when there's no option ahead of him.

Only 19, barely played at centre-half, and he was outstanding. Reads the game remarkably well for one so young.

He does like a goal, doesn't he? Vital header to get us back into it.

Did fine but worryingly went off with what appeared to be hamstring strain in the early part of the second half.

Provided good cover to the back four, but like the rest of the midfield, struggled to make an impact.

Taken off for Oxlade-Chamberlain in the second period, caught on the ball a bit in the first.

Gets the extra .5 for the goal but really had a hard time getting into the game throughout. Looked tired and a bit clumsy at times, which isn't him. Still though #welshjesus

Set-piece delivery was poor, passing was off, bundled off it too much, a day to forget.

Superb assist for the equaliser but apart from that seemed to be on a different wavelength to those around him. Might take him a bit of time to settle in on the basis of this.

If he started because he's the fitter of the two obvious front men, then he didn't really show it. Hardly got any service but what he did get he didn't do enough with.

On his day he can really spark the team. Today was not a sparky day.

We looked much better with him leading the line, the ball stuck and we pressed them back more. Contributed well to the goal too.

Replaced Gibbs and did very well I thought. Made some very good interceptions and provided some threat down the left hand side.

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 1/10 - Marouane Chamakh who only played like that for his mate Nasri. Minging cunt.
