Jordan Williams - a very right-footed left-back 5

Claudio Gomes - struggled to impose himself 5

Romal Palmer - got about the pitch but it too often ended with fouls 6

Victor Adeboyejo - hard for any attacking player to have much impact, and he did not 5

Aaron Leya Iseka - quiet on the left wing 5

Devante Cole - laid on the chance for Styles and was the best attacking player, but it was not saying much 6
