Middlesbrough ratings

Given - Couldn't have wished for a more comfortable afternoon. 6.5

Zabaleta - Solid in defence and purposeful going forward. 7

Richards - Went off at half time but handled anything that came his way. 6.5

Boyata - A solid debut indeed. Tackles well and has an air of confidence about his game. 7.5

Garrido - Comfortable on the ball and saw plenty of it. 7

Weiss - Showed flashes but tried too hard at times. 6

de Jong - Not overly tested but did the right things. 6.5

Kompany - Operated both in midfield and defence, equally at home in both. 7

Sylvinho - An unfamiliar role but performed well. 6.5

Petrov - The star for me. Attacked well, brought others into the game and set up the winner. 8

Benjani - Isolated in the first half, but worked hard and a nice finish. 7

Subs:

Tevez - Lively as usual. Went close once or twice and should have got on the scoresheet. 7

Barry - Steady as ever and kept things simple. 7

Bellamy - Twenty minute run out but never quite made an impact. 6
