1. ĐORĐE PETROVIĆ (5.7)

There wasn’t much to be happy about in terms of individual performances from this one, but Petrović was solid enough, as usual. There really wasn’t too much he could’ve done about the goal, and there also really wasn’t much he had to do otherwise (1 save), but he completed all his passes and has remained a steady presence at the back.

2. MALO GUSTO (5.3)

Gusto also put in a solid and largely error-free shift, but he was not quite able to impact the game as much as he had in recent outings. It’s perhaps telling that Middlesbrough focused their attacks on the flank opposite of Gusto.

3. THIAGO SILVA (5.3)

When in doubt, vote Thiago Silva.
