How Albion players rated against Crystal Palace.

Robert Sanchez 7/10

Not too much to do but stood as a big barrier when Webster diverted a low cross goalwards.

Joel Veltman 7/10

Albion’s scorer in this fixture last season was involved in a penalty this time. Another very capable and adaptable performance.

Adam Webster 7/10

Some good defending and Lamptey’s arrival gave more chance to show off his passing range. Might have done more when he rose well to meet a couple of set-pieces.

Dan Burn 8/10

Continued his excellent recent run of form at centre-back. Will be interesting to see what happens with him and the formation when Dunk returns.

Marc Cucurella 8/10

Another livewire performance along with under-rated defensive work. You never quite know where he is going to pop up.

Adam Lallana 7/10

A big reason why Bissouma’s absence was not really discussed. Offers a different take on the holding midfield role but was alert to pick off passes.

Alexis Mac Allister 8/10

Very good on the ball and tenacious without it. Through ball for Moder was perhaps his highlight.

Pascal Gross 6/10

Involved in some effective build-up play down the right before moving infield but assessment of his evening must inevitably be conditioned by a weak penalty.

Jakub Moder 7/10

Gets into some great areas, be it to set up chances or go for goal himself. Just missing that last touch although he was unlucky when he hit the bar.

Leandro Trossard 7/10

Unable to convert an early one-on-one but produced some good movement and ball retention under pressure and his crossfield pass was part of the goal.

Neal Maupay 7/10

Some clever contributions to attacking moves and his great first touch set up the platform for the own goal.

Subs - Tariq Lamptey 6/10

An exciting first option off the bench although Palace were alive to the threat and dealt with him pretty well.

Solly March n/a

Added a bit to the late push and put over some dangerous balls.

Danny Welbeck n/a

A great target in the middle and almost headed a late winner.
