Crystal Palace Players Rated And Slated In Entertaining Draw Vs Everton: Loftus-Cheek Gets 9/10

Crystal Palace picked up a crucial point this weekend at home, as they drew 2-2 with Everton in a very entertaining match. James McArthur opened the scoring for the Eagles while Leighton Baines reduced the deficit from the spot after Oumar Niasse brought down by Scot Dann Inside the box.

Wilfried Zaha then doubled the home advantage only to see his goal cut out by a Niasse equaliser. Here are the player ratings for the Eagles in this tie:

Julian Speroni- 6

Until the dying minutes of the first half, he 38 years old had a pretty commanding evening. But his sloppy pass to Scot Dann which led to the second goal otherwise the result could have been different.

Scott Dann- 5.5 

was at fault for the penalty as he wrong-footed Oumar Niasse to give away a penalty. Found himself often in the opponent box as he tried a number of headers but wasn’t lucky enough to find the back of the net.

Mamadou Sakho- 6

Dealt with the threat pretty well and was the best defender on the pitch. Picked up the craziest yellow card as he dragged Calvert-Lewin to the pitch.

Joel Ward- 7 

A convincing display on the flanks. The Palace right backchecked his runs pretty well and put an inch-perfect cross to Zaha who slotted it home.

Jeffrey Schlupp- 6

a very well drilled performance on the left-hand side.

Luka Milivojevic- 7

Got the midfield running with his energy and drive in the midfield. kept his cool and indeed a very great effort in the middle of the pitch.

Yohan Cabaye- 7

Was all where on the pitch. Put through a number of delightful balls and even knitted the pass for the first goal.

James McArthur- 7.5

did his duty quite well and was in a very good position as he slotted the ball past Pickford.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek- 9

The Hero of the day. The English international justified his selection in the Three Lions squad with another commendable performance. He was twisting and turning all over the field and looked very confident in difficult times. he made some darting runs through the middle and enjoyed a very good afternoon.

Wilfried Zaha- 8

Was a continuous danger as he looked to move forward whenever he had the ball. His movement got the reward as he found the net.

Aaron Townsend- 6

Not the best day today. A bit rusty gameplay from him as he lacked the killer instinct.


Christian Benteke- 5

Could have sealed the match but shot it wide.

Jason Puncheon- N/A
