Salzburg player ratings

salzburg ratings

Given - Very little to do and protected well by the back four. 6.5

Boateng - Made some nice forays forward. Useful minutes under his belt. 7

Kolo Toure - Held his concentration and distribution always good. 7

Lescott - Got forward at times (overlapping wing-back?!) and held firm defensively. 7

Zabaleta - Comfortable on the left and a nice ball for Balotelli's opener. 7

Vieira - A quiet game. Not tested though and did his job allowing Milner more freedom. 6.5

Milner - In his favoured position and looked more threatening as a result. 7.5

Wright-Phillips - More complete than recent performances. Difficult to see him starting though. 7

Johnson - Nice goal and a constant threat. A timely reminder that even drew praise from Mancini. 7.5

Balotelli - Looks such a good player and far from the finished article too. Salzburg couldn't handle him. 8

Jo - Had a big chance but couldn't quite deliver apart from one or two moments. 6

Subs:

Adebayor - Ran around manfully. To make an impression or because of the cold? 6

Richards - Barely time to impact either way. 6
