Swansea City Player Ratings
Erwin Mulder – 6/10
Barring the goal he conceded, Mulder had very little to do at the Den.
Connor Roberts – 6/10
A solid performance if not spectacular from Roberts, who showed great energy and will to compete throughout the game.
Mike van der Hoorn – 7/10
Swansea’s defensive lynchpin, Van der Hoorn dished out another solid display at the back. He passed the ball well and stayed alert.
Joe Rodon – 7/10
Rodon was assured in possession and had a really bright game, barring a couple of nervy moments.
Martin Olsson – 7/10
Offered excellent attacking outlet down the left and looked very composed defensively. He showed great energy as he bombed up and down throughout the game.
Daniel James – 7/10
James was a solid presence in the middle of the park as he offered great vision and kept Swansea ticking with his passing.
Leroy Fer – 5/10
Fer added a lot of feistiness to Swansea’s midfield for the short time he was on the pitch. Unlucky to go off injured before the break.
Matt Grimes – 6/10
Grimes showed some really good touches. He looked very composed on the ball.
Bersant Celina – 7/10
Swansea’s creator in chief, Celina linked up play really well and added creativity in the final third.
Courtney Baker-Richardson – 1/10
A debut to forget for Baker-Richardson, who put his team under severe pressure. He had the chance to impress Graham Potter but let himself down.
Oli McBurnie – 8/10
Worked tirelessly throughout the game and was rewarded for it. Popped up with an 85th-minute winner and once again showed why he is a real asset to the Swans going forward. McBurnie is looking every inch of a proven Championship striker. A performance worthy of a shout!
Kyle Naughton – 8/10
Naughton replaced the injured Fer in the 35th minute and calmed things down. Scored the equaliser in what will go down as an important goal in his career.
Jefferson Montero – 8/10
Replaced Olsson and immediately changed the game with his explosive pace and trickery. A dazzling display.
Tom Carroll – 7/10
Carroll came on for James with half-an-hour left to play. He brought a calming influence to the midfield.
