Could and probably should have been more, referee was poor, at times we were excellent, at times we struggled with the hoof into our box, some good performances and some absolutely outstanding away support.

1-0 up won't mean a great deal for the second leg and we've a lot to do yet.

Great performance and well done O'Neill, bought on Sidwell and it completly took the sting out of the game. that's exactly what I like to see!

Guzan - 6 - Some decent saves but struggled physically.

Cuellar - 7 - Usual consistancy.

Collins - 7 Usual consistancy

Dunne - 8 - Titanic again.

Warnock - 7 Usual Consistancy.

Young - 8 - Looked really lively, and throughouly enjoyed him running at players.

Petrov - 7 - Again, great 60 minutes but then needed to just be a captain and get his foot on the ball and set the tempo, didn't do it and went missing a little but still overall, solid.

Downing - 7.5 - Really does look a class act and his quality on the ball is something we need.

Milner - 9 - Another fantastic performance from Milner, a goal and our creative force.

Heksey - 7.5 - Links the play up brilliantly and was the focal point in us starting our attacks. Someone we really need.

Agbonlahor - 8 - Should of had a penalty, ran the channels well, held the ball up well and was unlucky on a couple of occasions not to get a goal.

MON - 9 - Correct starting line up, correct tactical subsitution! (One mark down for it not being Reo-Coker ;))

we kept it interesting for next week on purpose :P

1st half IMO was as good as we get, 2nd halfdipped but we still could of had 2/3 goals each half, still think with carlos at RB we hit it long a bit too much but with their set pieces threat it did make sense, guzan looked nervous (shame it was a foul cos it was a great save) but everyone else looked very good

ref was absolutely shocking, 2 pens, IMO the kalinic elbow is either way not always given, but benni's at the end i cant see what else he possibly saw

Good performance, 'specially first half.

The midfield in particular impressed and MOTM could be any from Milner, Young, Downing.

Another clean sheet - good for the defence. Shame we didn't get the second, but would've definitely taken this result beforehand. We'll have big psychological advantage going into the 2nd leg and have shown we can score goals against Blackburn, so we should be able to see it out comfortably enough.
