Player Ratings : Everton


After coming away with a point that could’ve been so easily three, we look at how individuals performed yesterday evening.

Lee Grant – 8

Nothing too major to deal with apart from an absolute wonder save late on from a Davies header, nothing he could’ve done with the goal. Done all the basics well, no trouble taking crosses.

Phil Bardsley – 8

Apart from his Adam impersonation with a horrific long shot, a solid performance from Bardo, went forward well and was at ease with whatever Everton had to offer in attack.

Player Ratings : Manchester United


After a good result aghast Manchester United that left fans gutted after letting it slip right at the very end, its time to examine the individual performances once again….

Lee Grant – 8

Absolutely no chance with the free kick, made some solid punches and catches when under pressure from the United big men, questionable spillage when clashing into Shawcross and was lucky it didn’t fall and a United players feet, yet some solid saves and fine reactions to keep us in the game.

Glen Johnson – 7

In a solid defensive performance Johnson was arguably the least strong out of the back 4, yet still a solid enough performance, Mkhitaryan easily got past him a few times but nothing too major. Average.

Player Ratings : Sunderland


Time to look into the individual performances at a surprisingly simple game despite the lack of optimism going into the game at the Stadium of Light…

Lee Grant : 7

Not a chance with the goal, made a couple of decent saves, clash with Indi when he spilt the ball could’ve ended worse but overall just your average goal keeper performance.

Glen Johnson : 8

Worked well with Shaqiri and a put a few threatening balls in towards Crouch, Larsson didn’t trouble him, solid performance.
