Wigan player ratings

Given - Could have done better with the goal but redeemed himself with a fantastic block late on. 6.5

Zabaleta - First yellow was soft but the type of rash challenge we have seen before from him earned him red. 5.5

Bridge - Solid enough but perhaps hadn't fully recovered from the midweek injury. 6

Richards - Back in the middle and although lost out in the build up to the goal was solid enough. Will be back in at right-back next week. 6.5

Lescott - I though his best game for us yesterday. Took on more responsibility with Toure's absence and was a presence both in defence and going forward. 7.5

Wright-Phillips - The 4-4-2 suits him better and he showed good flashes yesterday. Still under pressure though. 6.5

Barry - I thought he was again superb. So much of his work goes largely unnoticed but his presence continues to be a key for us. Tired late on. 7.5

de Jong - Another strong, gritty performance doing the dirty work. Has to be careful with one or two of his challenges though. 7

Petrov - Another start, another goal. Hughes praised his effort and he is doing all he can to warrant a starting spot. 7.5

Adebayor - Worked hard again and got into good positions. Sacrificed following the sending off of Zabaleta. 7

Tevez - An excellent performance, full of energy and effort - particularly when we down to ten men. Looks to be one of the first names down on the team sheet. 7.5

Subs:

Kompany
- First appearance of the season and looked composed in the centre of defence. 6.5

Ireland
- A fleeting appearance and didn't get much opportunity to make an impact. 6

Santa Cruz
- No time for an impact. n/a
