Rob Hutchison

Rob Hutchison recovered from the London Branch 50th birthday party and then found something else to celebrate. Here are his one-word ratings from the Palace match (or mismatch if you like).

They’re a bit better than those we’ve become accustomed to and doesn’t it feel good that they are so well merited?

Vito 8 staunch

Kone 9 back!

O’Shea 8 strong

Jones 8 organised

Denayer 8 solid

Oviedo 9 DEFENDER!

Rodwell 8 dominant

N’Dong 9 mercurial

Larsson 8 grafted

Januzaj 8 sublime

Defoe 9 clinical

 

Gibson 8 unit

Pienaar 8 lively

Lescott 7 grand

 

Guest ratings . . . .

Fans 10 legendary

    What we need now is for some players to reach their potential in every game and produce this level of performance consistently. Ndong, Rodwell, Denayar, Januzaj can all be excellent and yet can all be ineffective on another day.
