It's been an amazing season and today saw us rack up our 19th win and nail down a European place with a 3-0 victory in front of 10,000 ecstatic fans. Once again, the standard of performance across the team was consistently excellent. Here's Bobby Bubbles ratings:
Fabianski: Had to be sharp as Southampton enjoyed a decent first quarter but Fab was alert and made it hard for Minamato when faced with a one on one and then pulled off an acrobatic save to keep it level until the Fornals goals settled our nerves. 8.5/10
Coufal: Topped off a tremendous season with another cracking performance both defensively and getting forward with an assist for Fornals second. Unusually, got roasted by Redmond towards the end which by my calculations brings his error count to a mere three all season! The most coolheaded right back in the league? 8.5/10.
Dawson: Has snapped back to top form in the final two games after a few middling performances in the 3-4 games before that. 8/10.
Ogbonna: So much talk about the absence of Rice contributing to our stumble in the run in but Oggy's return has been quietly crucial. 33 today but surely has another two years in him? 8/10.
Cresswell: Can feel hard done by not to be going to the Euros as he has had his best season ever for the club and was quietly brilliant again today. 8/10.
Rice: Massive presence and back to full sharpness today. So composed nowadays and took his goal with aplomb. 9/10.
Soucek: Simply everywhere. Enjoyed having Rice back as it allowed him to push forwards more and so nearly scored again. A real team player 8.5/10.
Fornals: He has really come into his own in the back half of the season. He gets into so many good positions and at times his link play is breathtaking. MOTM and two crucial goals. 9.5/10.
Lingard: Looks so happy in the team, loves linking with Fornals et al. Looked sharp and almost scored. We reckon he'll stay as long as Rice doesn't leave. 8/10.
Bowen: Physically he has finally adjusted to the Premier league and has gotten so much smarter at knowing when to hit the deck and take a free. We suspect Noble has been givibg him tips! 8/10
Antonio: Looked tired but still gave it his all as always. Incredible to think he was (ab) used in a right back role only a few seasons ago but his transformation to a striker reflects his innate intelligence and dedication. 7.5/10.
Benrahma: A fantastic option to shake things up and he looks more confident having opened his scoring account. Went very close with one effort. Next year will be a massive one for him - he needs to get more crafty at pulling penalties! 8/10
Noble: Ah stop! Amusingly, He was playing up top for the final few minutes but sadly a break on goal didn't come his way which would have been hilarious. Future club manager without question! 7/10.
Diop: errr, not sure if he touched the ball. Great to see him back though and let's not forget that he is still only 24 years old. Not rated.
Moyes: There can be no doubting that he knows how to get the best out of his players and now that he has nailed down his style and team formation you get the sense that he will be able to bring in the right type of players to push forwards over the coming years. It should also be noted that despite his headmaster-like demeanour, he has transformed an unsettled club into a happy band of warriors. Simply outsmarted Southampton today. 10/10.
