Player Ratings : Swansea


Finally brought myself to watch the game and write a blog on it, oh my, lets get this over and done with….

Jack Butland – 7

Left with no chance with the Llorente header and couldn’t be blamed for the Carroll goal after the wicked deflection, made a wonderful save to prevent Carroll getting a second. Done all the other basics well, Lovely to see him back.

Glen Johnson – 6

Average defensive display but made good progress down the right although it came to absolutely nothing.

Ryan Shawcross – 6

Poor defending for Swansea’s first, should have been much closer to Llorente when he scored, other than that, solid enough.

Bruno Martins Indi – 7

Not responsible for how the day went, his performance was solid enough although sould’ve been sent off for a second yellow. Lucky man.

Erik Pieters – 6

Defensively couldn’t do much more, like Johnson, made good progress down the left but, as per usual, his crossing let him right down.

Xherdan Shaqiri – 5

Apart from winning the penalty he made very little impact, complete opposite to his performance last week.

Joe Allen – 6

Some questionable passes but grafted hard as usual, created a good opportunity for Berahino who should’ve converted. Can’t be blamed for the carroll goal, just unfortunate with the deflection it took.

Geoff Cameron – 6

Basically the same as Allen, ran well but questions need to be asked about what he does when the ball is at his feet, also headed the ball straight into Ki who somehow missed the target.

Marko Arnautovic – 5

Picked out Shaqiri well who then won penalty seconds after, as for the penalty, lets not go into too much detail, far away from his best.

Sadio Berahino – 4

Two Free headers, one well wide, the other straight into Fabianski, should’ve scored both. Starting to lose patience with him now.

Peter Crouch – 5

Created a glorious chance for Berhaino but another one who had little impact. Even struggled with his aerial dules.

Ramadan Sobhi – N/A

Should’ve came on much sooner, didn’t do anything in the fifteen minutes he was on.

Mame Diouf – N/A

Same as Sobhi, came on too late, couldn’t do anything in ten minutes he was on.

Mark Hughes – 0

Just sack him already.
