Bristol City player ratings against Fulham: Semenio is sexy but Mitrovic runs riot

Max O’Leary – 5

Two good first-half saves, low to the left to frustrate Neskens Kebanu, and then an acrobatic pass over the bar to block Mitrovic, kept City in the game but then the gates opened and the City goalkeeper repeatedly found himself knocking the ball out of goal. his network. Can’t blame any of them, hardly.

Thomas Callas – 5

On an individual level, this wasn’t a bad performance on the part of the Czechs, initially doing well covering space behind Da Silva and winning some headers near the post to block some dangerous crosses, but in the end he was part of a defense that conceded six goals. . However, it is surprising why, unlike Wiener, he was not assigned to monitor Mitrovic.

Zach Wiener – 4

Which brings us to Vyner who looked relatively relaxed during the first 15 minutes or so as he grabbed the Serb destroyer, fouling and speeding possession, as well as having one thrilling ball over the top for DaSilva that sent him on his way.

But then the 24-year-old struggled and overpowered him comprehensively and over-thinking and lost in a semi-submissive state by the tournament’s best striker. He looked drastically more comfortable when he switched to right-back for the last 30 minutes, but the match was over by then.

Cambring – 4

Lots of effort and commitment on the part of the versatile defender, including a purposeful dash forward in the first half that nearly created a good opportunity, but Pring found it particularly challenging, not only in trying to contain Wilson but Mitrovic as well, on some occasions, withdrew to Once again to try to expose it there. This probably isn’t the best examination of his credentials as a centre-back, but suffices to believe that he is perhaps the best on a grand scale.

Jay DaSilva – 5

It’s hard to be too tough on Da Silva, playing in such an odd position for him, but in the first 25 minutes or so he was good as a right-back, albeit hampered by the constant desire to use his left foot. Neskens Kebanu had a rough run but he got a lot of help from Kalas.

Han Noah Masingo – 4

Like the rest of City’s midfield players in the first half, he simply couldn’t retain any sense of control of the ball and went out of possession, Reed and Kearney picked passes and 1-2 around him. There was plenty of energy, as always, one good break ahead but a tough afternoon for the Frenchman.

Andy King – 5

He carried on in the course and enjoyed the second game as captain, but this was not a pleasant experience for the 33-year-old who always found himself at the back and looking over his shoulder as several of Fulham’s midfielders charged forward. He, along with Alex Scott, managed to get the ball a bit more in the second half but that was because Fulham lifted their feet off the gas like nothing else.

Alex Scott – 6

All at sea in the first half because he didn’t have the defensive game needed to stop the liquid sides like Fulham and because he was so hungry for the ball, he had to drop deeper and deeper, becoming ineffective, in and out of possession. However, he was a bit of a midfield watcher for City after the break, and he showed real composure and a will to try and get Robbins to attack again.

Callum O’Dawda – 5

He made some critical runs and gave Kenny Tite something to think about but didn’t do enough when he found an opportunity. And like many of his teammates, he spent much of the mid-to-last half of the first half just trying to stay in position and fill Al Sadd.

Andy Wyman – 5

Another player wearing red was noticeably better after the break but, to reiterate the point, Fulham were third at this point and heading towards the three points. Admittedly, he couldn’t be considered as guilty as midfield due to the lack of pressure on the ball, but the Austrian rejected two really good shot opportunities either side of the first half and fired straight at Marek Rudak.

Antoine Semeneu – 8

Simply wonderful. His targets should have been the story from this afternoon, but, unfortunately, Mitrovic stole the spotlight from him. It was a solid first defeat on the left and then a confident finish, but his second goal was arguably his best of the season so far for Robbins; He turned halfway, beating two defenders and then hitting the net hard past Rodak. Other than that, the manner in which he was put off and his general positive engagement was so exhilarating to see him and it is exciting to see how he develops over the second half of the season.

Chris Martin (on DaSilva, 51) – 6

The match was long over by the time he was involved, but the forward had some nice play with Wiemann.

Rob Atkinson (for Masingo, 51) – 6

It is difficult to judge precisely Atkinson’s involvement but City’s defense looked much safer with him on the field. I also planted a header just above the bar.
