Manager, Goalkeeper and Defenders
Ralph Hasenhuttl, Manager – 8
Substitutes made at the right time and when his team needed them. Good to see the attacking patterns that he and his coaching team have come up with are now paying off.
His team are now getting back to the levels of performance they were showing earlier this campaign.
Alex McCarthy, Goalkeeper – 6
Little to do throughout the game but remained neat and tidy in his distribution.
Less eye-catching displays recently than Fraser Forster but has equally done nothing wrong to harm his chances ahead of next season.
Kyle Walker-Peters, Right-Back – 7
Not a huge impact on this game but kept control on his side of the pitch. Consistency all the time, with some outstanding performance thrown in.
Needs competition behind him if Saints expect him to keep these levels up.
Jack Stephens, Centre-Back – 8
Caught out of position for Fulham’s goal but that should not take away from everything else he did in the game. Consistently driving forward with the ball to build attacks, kept the ball really well and produced another last man tackle.
The perfect player to have in a squad because he never lets the team down when he is needed.
Jannik Vestergaard, Centre-Back – 7
Not so many of his raking cross-field passes with less space for the wide players right now but he is brilliantly calm and composed on the ball when compared to his early Saints career.
Will take some replacing if he is to move on given his role in defence and attack.
Mohammed Salisu, Left-Back – 7
A quiet game in comparison to others for the Ghanaian but the main thing is he has not bee exposed as a left-back so far.
Clearly a good player and this is shown by fitting in smoothly to all positions he is needed in.
