Stoke v QPR player ratings

QPR are bottom of the Premier League again after losing against Stoke. Here’s how we rated the players in their 1-0 defeat. 

Julio Cesar: 7
Didn’t have a great deal to do before producing a late save to deny Michael Kightly.

Jose Bosingwa: 7
Effective going forward and almost created a goal for Esteban Granero in the first half.

Anton Ferdinand: 6
His all-round display was decent enough but he was beaten in the air in the build-up to Stoke’s goal.

Ryan Nelsen: 6
Should also have done better for the goal but generally did well, holding Rangers’ defence together in a match many tipped them to struggle in because of Stoke’s aerial threat.

Armand Traore: 5
Talented but not always trustworthy. His mistake for Stoke’s goal was costly and inexusable.

Samba Diakite: 6
Full of energy. Very hit and miss though.

Alejandro Faurlin: 6
Honest player who’s classy on the ball but was caught out by Stoke on a couple of occasions.

Esteban Granero: 7
Unlucky not to equalise with a second-half effort that was well saved. Dangerous when breaking forward.

Adel Taarabt: 7
Made a total hash of a great chance in the first half but was otherwise impressive, constantly annoying Stoke with his trickery and able to pick a pass too.

Junior Hoilett: 7
His pace and directness was a problem for Stoke. A good display.

Djibril Cisse: 5
Will have hoped to build on last weekend’s goal against Reading, but failed to give Rangers a cutting edge.
