Have your say



Vito Mannone: Great save from Sam Vokes in first half when Burnley striker was through. 6

Javier Manquillo: Got forward at every chance and put in threatening ball no-one was there to convert. 6

Jason Denayer: First senior start at centre-half for Cats and very good too against a dangerous forward line. Couple of timely bits of work in second half. 7

Papy Djilobodji: Having had a tough afternoon seven days earlier at Turf Moor, this was much more like it. 7

Patrick van Aanholt: Got on his bike from the opening whistle and always on the front foot, but couple of poor balls late on. 6

Fabio Borini: Plenty of toil but not Fab's day. 5

Jack Rodwell: Carried on from where he left off against Liverpool on Monday and happy to let fly from edge of the area, went closest to scoring for hosts. 7

Donald Love: Was paired with Rodwell in the middle of the park and played well, kept the ball moving nicely. 6

Seb Larsson: Would have been nice to see a better corner or two but Seb steady before getting a late rest. 5

Adnan Januzaj: Some encouragement but didn't get enough ball. 6

Jermain Defoe: A shock to see the talisman play but didn't see much possession and had no shots. 6


John O'Shea (for Larsson 84): Shored up a creaking defence. N/A
