Here's how Chris scored the players:

Nothing Heaton could do about any of the goals, and not overly tested otherwise. Swept up well in behind to foil Schlupp and Batshuayi one on one
Unfortunate with Schlupp's driven ball in from Zaha's centre, but stretched by Schlupp's pace throughout, and crossing not at his best

Passing unusually off-beam in his last two games, but largely kept Batshuayi quiet in front of Gareth Southgate
Like Tarkowski, not at his best in the last two matches after starring against Spurs, one of three defenders beaten by Zaha for his goal
Continues to grow into life in the Premier League, worked hard and looked to forge his way forward at every opportunity
Looked to get involved in the first half - one reverse pass to Ashley Westwood standing out - but was withdrawn at half-time to get a more natural wideman on in Johann Berg Gudmundsson
Worked as hard as ever, but unable to exert any real influence on the game
Immediately restored to the side and slotted back into the high standards he has set, pressing and probing, and got an assist
Sean Dyche took responsibility for starting McNeil at Newcastle, when he was taken off at the break, but he showed no ill effects, displaying confidence in possession, without really stretching Wan-Bissaka
Kept digging away and nicked another goal on a day when Palace's centre backs dominated 6
Got little change out of Scott Dann and James Tomkins
(for Hendrick 46) - positive and kept going at van Aanholt, but unable to deliver that killer cross for the front two
Not enough playing time to influence the game
Unlucky with chance in the dying moments that forced a fine save out of Hennessey
