Swansea Player Ratings

Lössl : 6/10

It's almost pointless giving the 'keeper a rating because he had absolutely nothing to do in the game. He passed the ball well when he had the chance, but he was as much a spectator as me on Saturday.


Hadergjonaj : 8/10


Flo was always available down the right wing and ran Olsson well throughout the game. He delivered one or two dangerous crosses and couldn't have done much more to influence the game than he did.


Jorgensen : 7/10


Similarly to the 'keeper, Zanka had relatively little to do in the match but his pro-activity meant that Town recycled the ball quickly whenever they lost it. Stepped forward more in the latter stages of the second-half and started some dangerous attacks.


Schindler : 6/10


Again, Schindler wasn't tested in a defensive sense but helped Town regain the ball and get it back forward. One less point than Zanka as he wasn't as aggressively forward thinking as the Dane, but nothing to complain about from his performance.



Malone : 6/10


Just like Flo he always provided an outlet down the left and looked to step inside his marker on several occasions. The only blot on his copy book is the miss in front of goal in the second-half, but then again, he's probably not used to operating as a fox in the box!


Hogg : 8/10


After his involvement in Ayew's dismissal he became Town's driving force from deep, spreading the ball well and instigating attacks. He was unlucky with two shots from range which could have easily ended up in the back of the net.


Mooy : 7/10


The Aussie is just back from a pretty gruesome injury and tried his best before being replaced by Danny Williams. He was perhaps missing that bit of zip and urgency that he normally has but that's only natural when returning from time out.


Ince : 5.5/10


Right now Tom just isn't cutting the mustard at Town. His effort and application are there, but his indecision is infuriating fans. Twice he had the opportunity to shoot when well placed and twice he dallied on the ball, allowing a defender to get across and block a shot. Have more faith in yourself Tom, and take a bloody shot!


Pritchard : 6/10


Really struggled to get in the game and was crowded out by red shirts whenever he was on the ball. He tried desperately to add a bit of creativity but unfortunately couldn't break down the red wall of defenders ahead of him.


Van La Parra : 8/10


You might hate the Dutchman, but you can't deny that he was involved on the few occasions when Town got beyond the Swansea back-line. His dazzling run in the second-half deserved more than the free-kick he received for being cynically hacked down.


Mounie : 7/10


Was full of application, running and determination throughout but never managed to throw off the shackles of Alfie Mawson. Steve was unfortunate not to score when Fabianski tipped his rasping volley onto the bar.


Substitutes


Quaner : 6/10


Added absolutely nothing to proceedings when he replaced Pritchard on the sixty-fourth minute, other than slowing down the play on the right hand side. More of his characteristic direct running was needed and unfortunately he rarely showed that skill.


Williams : 7/10


Looked to force matters a little more than Mooy and added an urgency to our play, again without having too much luck in that regard.


Depoitre : 6/10


Ten minutes wasn't enough for the big Belgian to have an impact on the game. He clearly unsettled Swansea's three centre-backs when he was introduced which begs the question, why wasn't he brought on earlier?


The Gaffer : 5/10


Ooosh, some might say this is a harsh score for Wagner, but when judged against his previous feats, it's not really. His failure to change things up in the second-half was responsible for Town continuing in the same fruitless fashion.


The introduction of Quaner should have signalled a switch to a more direct style of play, which would have forced the visitors to alter their approach. Arguably Laurent Depoitre was brought on too late as well.
