    Ben Arfa was immense, but so was Tiote.

    Perch was caught sometimes by bale. For me it was Jonas. Did everything well, defending attacking and captaining

    Ben Arfa clearly. Even in the dire first half they couldn’t handle him.

    My star players were Santon, Perch, Jonas and HBA. I voted Santon as he was excellent all match and i knew hba would win poll anyway 😉

    The first time i think i will disagree with you Dannyo, i thought tiote gave the ball away ALOT his passing looked very suspect. At one point he hooved it in the air and they broke.

    a few rusty players out there today which only bodes well as they will get sharper

    agree with most on here thought perch and saylor were immense, simpson looked dodgy but improved into game, front 2 didnt work too well but dont think they really had much of the ball, on the ground anyway,

    well done ba and H B A what do you say???

    roll on next week HWTL

    There is absolutely no doubt in my mind Jonas Gutierrez was the MOTM by a country mile. Put out fires all game, ran the ball out when we under pressure, motivated team mates, and buddied Anita who looked a bit nervous on his debut – proper captain’s performance.

    HBA was magic Ba’s magic touch was sick….goal out of nowhere thats the CLASS we require…..

    todays game showed we require Debuchy him going forward will open up an entire different ball game….

    We def need that CB though….

    @WWYCD
    Completely disagree mate, check this:

    Top aerialist: Cheick Tiote – 5/5
    Top passer: Cheick Tiote – 67/81

    Cabaye had a shocker imo, completely invisible.

    For me Santon was the best player defended well and attacked almost at will, & Gutierezz played like a captain today worked his socks off, then tiote, ben arfa & perchinho played in there and i didnt even notice for a second than it was the great brazilian himself as i seriously thought he was williamson lolz

    one thing i noticed, when obertan came on he sprinted about 75 yards to get back to try and win the ball, eager to impress i feel. HBA today was outstanding, could take it past players for fun today, but jonas my god how dare you leave him out the team in your best 11 the guy is a workaholic gotta love him.

    Dannyo
    Great stats but anytime he tried to play a ball forward it was a lump to to a Spurs player or a short pass without enough behind it so again it went to a Spurs player. Completed passes were 90% between him and Perch/Saylor

    I agree Cabs was fairly pants too but he is well short on match fitness and he was forced to sit in front of the back four for half of his time on the pitch

    mostly every player impressed me apart from Simpson and Obertan i can understand why Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse didnt play so well because of their ramadan. Yohan Cabaye wasnt at his best but that’s just because hes not match fit. Vurnon Anita looked good and so did Taylor, Perch, Santon, Tiote, Gutierrez and krul but Hatem Ben Arfa Was Just WOW!
