Player Ratings: Evian 2-0 Paris Saint-Germain

The hosts' Daniel Wass shined as Laurent Blanc's men slipped to a surprise defeat to Evian - their first Ligue 1 loss for nine months

By Mohammed Ali

    Jesper Hansen

    Shrugged off a rather inconsistent first half to save Evian at the back tonight. A couple of superb stops, though not tested nearly as enough.

  • M. Sougou

    M. Sougou

    The on-loan Marseille forward was a strong presence up front tonight. His pace and tendency to cut in caused all sorts of problems for Jallet, before rounding his night off with a well-taken second.

  • Daniel Wass

    Daniel Wass Top of the Match

    Lauded as Evian's best player. The Danish full-back highlighted his brilliant versatility by featuring in midfield also, as well as creating chances against the opposition. A fantastic performance from a severely underrated player

  • Youssouf Sabaly

    3.00

    Youssouf Sabaly

    Managed well against PSG on the left flank and displayed his attacking qualities with a few bursts forward. Fared well defensively also.

  • Eric Tie Bi

    Eric Tie Bi

    The French-Ivorian midfielder was also one to come into his own after a poor first half. Was a strong presence in a rejuvenated second half.

  • Cedric Mongongu
    12
    2
    3.00

    Cedric Mongongu

    Mongongu ensured Ibrahimovic and Co. endured a frustrating evening with a fantastic performance at the back. Provided a couple of well-timed blocks.

  • D. Koné
    11
    2
    3.50

    D. Koné

    The combative midfielder was a commanding presence in the midfield, with a couple of key interceptions. Got himself into good positions also before being substituted.

  • Jonathan Mensah
    19
    1
    3.00

    Jonathan Mensah

    The Ghana defender formed a strong partnership with Mongongu this evening, and also played a huge part in shutting Paris Saint-Germain out. Had an intriguing tussle with Ibrahimovic.

  • Olivier Sorlin
    8
    1
    3.00

    Olivier Sorlin

    Sorlin contributed to a significant battle in the midfield, and fared better than expected. Outperformed Verratti and Matuidi, and tracked back to ensure a clean sheet.

  • B. Dja Djé Djé
    16
    1
    3.00

    B. Dja Djé Djé

    Got forward on many occasions, and stifled the Parisian defence well. Linked superbly with the forwards, and equally as solid at the back. A superb evening.

  • Marco Ruben

    2.50

    Marco Ruben

    An invisible participant for much of the first half but got himself involved in an encouraging second half. Struggled with the pace and intensity, before being substituted.

Substitutions

  • Cedric Cambon

    Cedric Cambon

    Came on in place of Kone, and fared well.

  • Clarck N'Sikulu

    3.50

    Clarck N'Sikulu

    The young striker came off the bench to fire Evian in the lead with a fine strike in the second half. Was pivotal for the hosts.

  • Salvatore Sirigu

    16
    2.00

    Salvatore Sirigu

    His bad week continued in Annecy. After seeing his clean sheet total usurped by Vincent Enyeama last night, he was beaten by two well positioned strikes.

  • Thiago Silva
    10
    18
    2.00

    Thiago Silva

    Disappointing performance from the PSG captain, who was nowhere near his confident best. Struggled with the testing conditions.

  • Marquinhos
    11
    14
    2.00

    Marquinhos

    At times he was easily beaten to the ball by the combative Evian players, but like Thiago Silva, struggled with the freezing conditions and the surface of the pitch.

  • Lucas Digne
    20
    6
    3.00

    Lucas Digne

    One of the better players from the side tonight. Digne made a couple of fantastic overlapping runs and supplied a few dangerous balls into the box for Ibrahimovic and Cavani.

  • Christophe Jallet
    5
    16
    2.00

    Christophe Jallet

    Easily given the runaround in the second half by Sougou, and then N'Sikulu. Can be classed as the weak link in this squad.

  • Jérémy Menez
    3
    32
    1.00

    Jérémy Menez Flop of the Match

    Made little contribution if any. Even the chance that was presented to him was hit wide and over the bar. Couldn't find his rhythm at all.

  • Blaise Matuidi
    7
    14
    2.00

    Blaise Matuidi

    Matuidi, back in the side after missing the Lyon victory, was disappointing in the Parisian midfield this evening. One of the big-game players that failed to produce.

  • Marco Verratti
    7
    18
    2.00

    Marco Verratti

    Unusually sloppy on the ball when in possession. Crafted one clear chance for Menez.

  • Adrien Rabiot
    8
    11
    2.00

    Adrien Rabiot

    The 18-year-old fared poorly this evening after a testing time at Parc des Sports. Couldn't get into key positions - what was regarded as a key trait of his game.

  • Edinson Cavani
    10
    29
    2.00

    Edinson Cavani

    Cavani was another who greatly disappointed despite a bright showing in the first half - a half full of attacking endeavour. Simply slipped off the radar in the second.

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic
    50
    15
    3.00

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    Despite the defeat, Ibrahimovic's performance wasn't as negative as his team-mates. Routinely dropped back to aid his flagging side, but couldn't divert a strike past Hansen.

Substitutions

  • Javier Pastore
    11
    28

    Javier Pastore

    Came on in the second half - with his only highlight missing a golden chance before Evian's second.

  • Lucas
    17
    10

    Lucas

    Replaced Jeremy Menez, but couldn't make an impact either.
