GK – Shay Given (Stoke City): Horribly isolated by a disinterested defence in front of him, but the 40-year-old has now shipped 23 goals in his eight Premier League appearances for the Potters
RB – Matthew Lowton (Burnley): Guilty of a needless, clumsy foul on Marc Albrighton just before the break which led to Leicester’s first and opened the floodgates. Singled out by his manager afterwards
CB – Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea): Lost his temper with Adam Lallana and lucky to get away with deliberately treading on the midfielder’s toes after fouling him. Looked unsettled throughout
CB – Papy Djilobodji (Sunderland): An awful fresh-air kick by the Senegalese centre-back let in Harry Kane for the only goal of the game at White Hart Lane. Has a way to go to prove he’s worth £8m
LB – Arthur Masuaku (West Ham United): The hapless defender gave away a free-kick on the edge of the area for handball, then immediately conceded a penalty after doing exactly the same thing inside the box from the resultant cross.
RM – Adnan Januzaj (Sunderland): The former Manchester United winger picked up two yellow cards in less than ten minutes as he was given his marching orders against Spurs. The first was for dissent.
CM – Paul Pogba (Manchester United): Doesn’t have the defensive discipline to play in the middle of the park, has created no assists so far this season and didn’t manage a shot on target against Watford.
CM – Jack Wilshere (Bournemouth): Swamped by a rampant Man City, Wilshere clumsily gave away a free-kick on the edge of the area from which the home side scored their opener, and generally struggled without the ball.
LM – Nolito (Manchester City): Was having a cracking game as part of a dynamic City attack before attempting to headbutt Adam Smith late on, for which he was sent packing. Utterly stupid.
CAM – Wayne Rooney (Manchester United): Woeful. One off-target shot, no tackles, didn’t create a single chance from open play and only successfully passed the ball forward six times in 90 minutes.
ST – Shane Long (Southampton): Goal-shy Southampton just about squeezed past Swansea but Long had another afternoon to forget. Booked for diving and subbed before the hour for Charlie Austin, who scored the winner.
