Portsmouth ratings

Given - A couple of anxious moments early on but rarely tested. 6

Zabaleta - Some good attacking forays until forced off through injury - 6.5

Toure - Returned to the line up and a strong presence in the side. My man of the match. 7

Kompany - Continued his form of late. Hopefully the injury is not serious. 7

Garrido - Lack of pace again evident today and exposed on occasions. 5.5

de Jong - Strong performance yet again but could have received more than a yellow. 6.5

Barry - Not getting into games enough. Place must be under threat. 5

Ireland - Nice ball for the opening goal and added creativity today. 6.5

Petrov - Confident as always, but a little selfish in his decision making. 6

Adebayor - Good to see him back in the side and took his goal well. 7

Tevez - Plenty of energy and running but lacked the quality of late. 6.5


Onouha - Slotted in with ease at right back. 6.5

Boyata - Accomplished performance after replacing the injured Kompany. 6.5

Bellamy - Added importance pace late on. 6.5

Both Ireland and Barry hid for large portions of the game - neither matching DeJongs willingness to close down and tackle or Tevez's willingness to make himself available for the ball. To hide as well as they did for 90 minutes takes a good footballing brain (but one going to waste). Ireland I can forgive somewhat as he lacks match practice and the two passes he did make were spot on. Barry is swiftly digging himself a hole he'll find it difficult to get out of if any of the midfield transfer rumours are true, which is a real shame because he was excellent for first dozen games.

Petrov 6 is more than generous. for the first time today people sat near myself finally seemed to have had enough of his selfish attitude. he is a greedy glory hunter and wastes so much ball. he is also one of the softest players i have ever seen. bottles out of every 50/50. needs replacing as there is not enough end product. managed 2 or 3 shots today and never tested the goalie once.
