Swansea City Player Ratings
Erwin Mulder – 6/10
A quiet afternoon for Mulder, who picked up his fifth clean sheet in five appearances since coming into the side.
Kyle Naughton – 9/10
Naughton was simply buzzing in the game. Linked up very well with Roberts on the right, created space for himself and showed great energy. A top show!
Mike van der Hoorn – 7/10
The skipper kept things tight at the back. Dealt with the aerial threat of Hemed and then Smith.
Joe Rodon – 7/10
Calm and composed at the back, Rodon had another excellent game for the Swans. He is growing in confidence with every passing game.
Matt Grimes – 6/10
A solid outing for Grimes, who defended very well. He moved forward with real purpose.
George Byers – 6/10
Struggled to impose himself in the first half but got better after the break. Was neat and tidy in possession and that kept the Swans ticking.
Tom Carroll – 8/10
Played a couple of poor passes but Carroll had a really good game overall. Linked up very well and was always looking for forward passes.
Connor Roberts – 8/10
Roberts formed a good partnership with Naughton on the right as the duo wreaked havoc against QPR. He took his goal with a nice dummy.
Oliver McBurnie – 8/10
McBurnie was a constant thorn for the QPR defence. He bullied the visitors with his physicality and power. His hold-up play was excellent and deserved a goal today.
Bersant Celina – 7/10
Celina was always a threat in the final third. His passing was crisp as he moved the ball well from the left.
Courtney Baker-Richardson – 6/10
A mixed bag on the whole. He will be relieved to have scored after completing his suspension but had glorious chances to claim his hat-trick.
Leroy Fer – 6/10
Replaced Baker-Richardson with 20 minutes left. Packed the midfield.

He replaced Celina and made a good impact.
Martin Olsson – N/A
Came on with barely five minutes left on the clock. Couldn’t make an impact.
