6) Florin Gardos (Southampton)
Southampton’s growing injury list has allowed Gardos several chances to impress in recent weeks, but he did anything but against Crystal Palace, coming off at half-time during the 3-2 defeat.
5) Jack Rodwell (Sunderland)
Sent-off for two needless yellow cards as Sunderland again turned in an uninspiring performance during the 0-0 draw with Championship side Fulham. On another day, his petulance could have cost his teammates.
