Man of the Match

Ghanian international Andre Ayew will take most of the plaudits tonight, as the forward’s excellent positioning allowed him to bag a brace and give his side a way back into the match.

The former Swansea man teamed up well with strike partner Andy Carroll tonight, and he thoroughly deserved his two goals.

 
Flop of the Match

Summer signing Fernando Llorente didn’t have the best of games tonight, as the Spaniard failed to make a serious impact on the game.

The forward was so bad, he was subbed off with 20 minutes to go for Moussa Dembele, a central midfielder…
