Crystal Palace player ratings

Given - More smart saves and another assured performance. Has not put a foot wrong since he signed. 7.5

Richards
- Struggled against the lively Moses after being booked early. 6

Toure
- The new captain had a strong all-round performance both defending and coming forward. 7

Lescott
- A solid debut. Some struggles but to be expected playing so soon after signing. A good partnership with Toure looks a matter of time. 6.5

Bridge
- Impressed with how he joins in the attack. Sound defensively too. 7

Wright-Phillips
- Saw plenty of the ball and looked lively and creative. Took his goal well. 7.5

Barry
- Not flashy or a headline grabber but his role and work shouldn't be underestimated. Man of the match. 8

Ireland
- Struggled to adjust to the new, deeper role. Some fleeting moments but few and far between. 6

Robinho
- Work rate not in question, but we are not getting the best from him (like Ireland) in a less attacking role. 6

Adebayor
- I do like the look of him and has some good touches and link up play. Quieter than his previous games though. 6.5

Tevez
- A real spark in the attacking third. Creative, works tirelessly and got himself on the scoresheet. Looks to be getting fitter. 7.5

Subs:

Neither de Jong or Bellamy were on long enough to impact.
