QPR player ratings v Everton: Phillips & Mutch the biggest strugglers

QPR Crest

Despite encouraging spells and cruel luck, Queens Park Rangers were swept aside by Everton on Monday night.

Rob Green - 5/10

Has impressed a lot this season - but not last night. The QPR goalkeeper was all at sea, while his kicking was poor from the off.

Yun Suk-Young - 5/10

The left-back endured a poor game, looking vulnerable and displaying a poor touch, in particular.

Richard Dunne - 5/10

Like Green, Dunne has been in form lately but this was a poor performance. Majorly at fault for one goal and played his part in Everton's others. Stood off far too often.

Nedum Onuoha - 6/10

One of QPR's better performers but played an unfortunate part in Everton's last goal and was still far from impressive.

Mauricio Isla - 6/10

Showed signs of his usual competence, although he took several poor touches and was not as assertive as he is at Loftus Road - much like the R's as a whole.

Joey Barton - 5/10

Much criticised by QPR fans in wake of this performance and has looked in poor form of late. Barton gave the ball away far too often and should have been replaced by Karl Henry.

Leroy Fer - 6.5/10

Divided opinion but showed skill on the ball and was one of QPR's best players in defeat. Could have offered more, however, especially as the west London side's heads simply dropped after going a goal down.

Jordon Mutch - 4/10

The subject of plenty of criticism from R's fans, the midfielder seemed to offer absolutely nothing against Everton. Harry Redknapp should not have opted for such an attacking midfield away from home and Mutch rewarded the boss's faith in him with very little in the way of a performance. Also committed a horror tackle.

Junior Hoilett - 6/10

Another to divide opinion, with many QPR supporters slating the winger. Definitely not his side's worst player, though, due to his efforts in at least trying to create something - even if very little actually came off.

Matty Phillips - 4/10

Has not impressed at all in the Premier League and was completely anonymous at Everton.

Eduardo Vargas - 6/10

Worked hard as always and was unlucky to deflect Kevin Mirallas's free kick into his own net but does not look anywhere near as comfortable up top as he does in behind the striker or out wide.

Substitutes

Niko Kranjcar - 6.5/10

Should certainly have started instead of Mutch and created the goal with his saved shot rebounding into Bobby Zamora's path. QPR looked much better since Kranjcar's introduction.

Bobby Zamora - 6.5/10

Scored QPR's only goal and should also have started. The thing is - Zamora's absence would have been justified had Redknapp actually played a defensive team. But he didn't and the R's were always going to concede. Leaving Zamora out with Charlie Austin unavailable, then, simply reduced their goal threat to zero.
