Rob Hutchison: why do I come home for this?

Rob Hutchison might have picked a better day to resume his one-word ratings, usually from away games since they are the ones he mostly attends. His verdicts – one word, one mark out of 10 – closely follow those of Monsieur Salut (for ESPN) …

Pickford 7 faultless

Jones 5 worked

JOS 5 average

Kone 5 flat

Oviedo 4 rinsed

Rodwell 4 done

Denayer 3 weak

Gibson 4 tough

Januzaj 5 sapped

Borini 4 limp

Defoe 5 deflated

Substitutes:

Khazri 7 decent

Ndong 7 sharp

Boss

Moyes 5 bewildering

    Can’t argue with that. N’Dong and Khazri certainly injected some life into another insipid performance. Pickford was his normal self. The rest? Awful.
