Good distribution and consistent handling from the American, who showed why he has made the No.1 jersey his this season.
Put in a number of crunching tackles to please the crowd and was good in the air all afternoon.
Solid performance from the captain, who was always on hand to mop up anything Baker missed in his challenges.
Started shakily but grew into the game and got forward more and more as his confidence rose.
Got forward well to support the attacking ranks and came close to replicating his wonder strike last week with a low effort. Solid defensively too.
Took the game to the visitors with a series of penetrating runs and took his goal with aplomb. Tested Schwarzer frequently.
Tidy performance in the middle, winning the ball back and releasing quickly to help the flow of his side's passing game. Was unlucky to score the own-goal that squared things up. Missed a glorious chance to re-establish the lead.
Was often guilty of over-playing and some of his passing, usually precise, was off in a disappointing display.
Always looking to get beyond his marker and was a constant thorn in the visitors' defence and went close to giving his side the lead with a number of efforts in the opening period. Faded in the second period.
Rather quiet performance from the youngster, who struggled to support Benteke in the manner N'Zogbia and Weimann did.
A typically powerful performance from the striker, who helped his side defend from the front and got the better of his battle with Senderos.
Made several world-class stops to preserve a point for his side, notably from N'Zogbia on a couple of occasions. Had no chance with the goal.
Largely steady and assured but made a couple of uncharacteristic mistakes to hand Villa possession of the ball in midfield.
Struggled to deal with the aerial presence of Benteke, who caused the visitors' backline a handful all afternoon.
Got forward as much as he could but struggled with the Villa attacking trio constantly switching positions.
Linked up well with Manolev down the right and always provided an outlet for his midfielders, who were put under pressure by the hosts.
The Greek midfielder looked to pull the strings in midfield but was unable to get into any penetrative positions to dictate the tempo more and help out the likes of Ruiz and Berbatov. Was sacrificed mid-way through the second half.
Popped up in dangerous areas but was never really dominant enough in the middle.
Sloppy in possession throughout, his match was perfectly epitomised by his shanked finish which went nearly went out for a throw-in in the first half.
Was replaced early on and made no real impact during his time on the pitch.
Flitted in and out of the game but was very tidy in possession and found plenty of room to work in. Produced a lovely, teasing corner for the Cottagers' goal.
Took up a role between the lines and caused havoc all afternoon with his constant movement and excellent first touch.
Replaced the ineffective Bowery but failed to produce any telling impact in the final third during his stay on the pitch.
