Dawson - 5 - Pulled off a great save before our second goal but should have done way better with their second. Terrible with crosses, no command over his area, absolutely horrid punching ability.
Lees - 6 - Not a ball player but did ok. Should have fouled their goalscorer(after Pelupessy failed to do it).
Pudil - 6 - Decent again. Tries to play stupid balls in tight spaces which as a CB is a bit unreliable. Always falling down/diving or going down injured.
Hector - 6 - Tried to instigate forward moves, lost the ball a few times but seemed decent. I like how he steps out of defence and runs with the ball. Lets the opposition get on his blind side too often. Fails to see them or is oblivious to the runs.
Palmer - 6 - Decent performance from Palmer, gets a lot of stick here but is much better this season than he has been the last few years.
Penney - 5 - Good cross for the goal, but apart from that suspect at the back and gave the ball away way too often. Needs to work on the defensive and positional side of his game.
Pelupessy - 7 - Did the dirty work again so others could do the eye catching stuff. Should have fouled the guy running through but was solid.
Onomah - 8 - Finally a midfielder that gets past the attackers. Tried running with the ball and running into the wide spaces. Created space for Reach to play. Also pretty handy defensively.
Reach - 8 - Another good performance from Reach. Wonder goal again, but good on the ball. Tried to create stuff.
Forestieri - 9 - My MoM. Never stopped pressuring the defenders and closing down. Showed the pace we have been lacking. No idea how he missed that sitter though.
Nuhui - 6 - Up to holding the ball up for 5 secs for our second goal hi first half was awful. Couldn't hold or pass the ball. Improved in the second half. Too slow to play our pressing game up front, as highlighted by Forestieri's performance.
Joao - 3 - Terrible, looked disinterested. Not a target man and I have no idea where this pace is that he supposedly has, looks about as fast as Chris Bart-Williams. If hes a saleable asset I'd try to get rid in Jan.
Kirby - 3 - Had no time to do anything, but what he did went wrong. Not ready yet, which also showed at Sunderland in the cup. Looks very lightweight for first team football.
Overall - Good performance. The defence was shielded brilliantly by the midfield for 83 mins until the subs came on. They changed the dynamic of the game. It was obvious WBA would press more for a goal and to put Kirby on was a head scratcher. As always its all opinions but this is mine. We seem to be getting better as he season goes on, hopefully that continues.
