Player Ratings : Bournemouth
Jack Butland – 6
Rarely called into action and couldn’t do much about both goals despite one going through his legs although it was from close range and hit with some pace.
Glen Johnson – 6
Can’t really fault anything that he did, good going forward and did he job defensively.
Ryan Shawcross – 6
Another defensively sound performance, can’t be blamed for his own goal, knew absolutely nothing about it.
Bruno Martins Indi – 6
Dived in a couple time but got away with it, continued his consistent season with another solid display and showed his quality and composure with the ball at his feet.
Marc Muniesa – 5
A few silly fouls and was nowhere to be seen when Bournemouth were attacking down the right at times, contributed to some attacks but was the weakest in the back four this week, in his defence, he really isn’t a left back.
Glenn Whelan – 6.5
Was there to provide protection to the back four and that is what he did, passing was to a good standard, best not to mention his wonder strike out of Dean Court.
Geoff Cameron – 6
Just like Whelan, provided the protection needed to the back four although questions could be asked about his passing.
Joe Allen – 6
Lucky to be able to stay on the pitch after a horrific Arter challenge, grafted hard as he always does, a little sloppy on the ball but did put the ball on a plate for Arnie who couldn’t convert.
Xherdan Shaqiri – 6.5
Caused the Bournemouth defence quite a few issues and put numerous dangerous balls into the box.
Mame Diouf – 6.5
It was a scrappy finish from everyone’s favourite right back but a goal is a goal, looked very lively up top.
Marko Arnautovic – 6
Had a glorious chance but headed it wide although did put in the corner that resulted in the own goal, looked a danger when running at Bournemouth but lacked any end product.
Erik Pieters – N/A
Absolutely baffling why he came on, did nothing in the tiny allocation of time he had.
Jon Walters – N/A
Apart from running around like he always does, he didn’t contribute hardly anything when came in, no rating.
Well there is a lot of six’s there! Let us know how you feel about them ratings.
