Reece James Arguably man of the match, playing on the right of the back three James kept Wilfred Zaha quiet throughout and also pushed forward looking to initiate attacks. A very mature and dominant performance. 8/10

Andreas Christensen Very calm and composed at the back, used his pace well to prevent Crystal Palace counterattacks. 7/10

Antonio Rudiger A typical Rudi display as he got stuck in and looked to win the ball back for his side as soon as they lost it, almost scored late on after a marauding run forward. 7/10
