After what was easily the worst home performance under Gus Poyet, here is how the players got on individually...not very well as you might have imagined;
Vito Mannone – 5
Possibly at slight fault for both goals
Ondrej Celustka – 6
Instrumental in the creation of Johnson's goal, but missing on occasions at the back
Phil Bardsley – 5
Slow at the back and wasted much coming forward.
Wes Brown – 6
Sound enough game at the back.
John O'Shea – 5
Old legs showed against Spurs' physicality
Ki Sung-Yeung – 6 (MAN OF THE MATCH)
Was again our best player in midfield, spotting an eye for the pass well, but lacks decisive action coming forward.
Jack Colback – 4
Dwelled on the ball too long, offered no direction to create play.
Seb Larsson – 4
Slow and lacking of creativity.
Adam Johnson – 6
Took his goal well.
Jozy Altidore – 5
Good link-up play to set up Celustka's cross leading to Johnson's goal.
Steven Fletcher – 3
Never offered anything in attack, be it down to fitness, form or attitude.
Lee Cattermole – 6
Provided a needed bit of steel in the centre.
Fabio Borini – 6
Helped to open the attack up, but missed a good chance.
Emmanuele Giaccherini – 6
Showed genuine skills which we should look to accommodate a little better.
