Ever so unfortunate with his own-goal. He had produced a fantastic save prior but was helpless to prevent the ball rebounding off his head and into the net.
Efficient display and has a good understanding with Musacchio at the heart of the defence.
- 27 Mario Gaspar
Mr consistent with another solid display.
In truth he was lucky not to have conceded a penalty after tangling with Sarpong in the box. Although it was minimal, there did seem to be contact by the defender. Despite that a very composed display.
Had a number of chances to get on the score-sheet after netting rather frequently in recent weeks. An efficient display by the midfield man.
A constant figure in the team and his composure and awareness in the middle is a huge benefit to his peers. Another excellent display.
Not a spectacular performance by any means but performed his duties well. Composed on the ball and always tracked back.
Absolutely outstanding performance. He was the architect of both goals and his interplay with Rossi was exceptional. His passing prowess is of the highest quality.
One of the most feared forwards in La Liga has produced two stunning finishes to claim all three points. His composure at pivotal moments is fantastic and always looked a threat from the get-go.
One of his more quieter nights but there’s no doubt his presence is a big plus for his side. He held the ball up well to get his partner Rossi on the go.
Produced a number of excellent saves but was outdone by two fantastic goals by Rossi.
Struggled against Cazorla and found it hard.
Nearly inadvertently scored one of the most spectacular goals of the season. His cross for Llorente was exceptional in the build-up to his side's goal.
Was at fault for Villarreal’s second after being dispossessed by Cazorla in his own half. Didn’t really recover from it in truth.
Was one of his side's better performers in the first-half but he struggled to conjure up with anything after Villarreal took the lead.
His headed effort created the goals for his side after doing brilliantly to leap above his marker to head goal-wards. Was productive in the first-half but faded after the interval.
Was rather anonymous throughout with exception to his headed ball back across goal to put his side into the lead. In fairness to him he never really had the service.
Was minimally involved going forward but always tracked back and performed his defensive duties. A disciplined display by the Frenchman.
