Goalkeeper - Boaz Myhill (West Brom)

The Baggies shot stopper was to blame for Newcastle's opener. His poor punch allowed Cabaye to open the scoring. Although he improved after the break, the damage had already been done.

Defender - Geoff Cameron (Stoke City)

The American was run ragged by the rampaging toffees, losing 4-0. Cameron just couldn't cope with the pace, skill and creativity of Pienaar, Deulofeu and Oviedo.

Defence - Kolo Toure (Liverpool)

The former Manchester City and Arsenal defender was given the run around by a rampant Hull City side on Sunday. The Ivory Coast man was culpable for the Tigers' second and was made to look distinctly average.

Defender - Glen Johnson (Liverpool)

Like the model Jordan, Johnson has his knockers and justifiably so after this performance. Caught out of position throughout the game, sloppy passing and lack of attacking threat saw Johnson have one of his worst games ever. And that's saying something.

Defender - Dwight Tiendalli (Swansea)

The Dutchman, making only his second Premier League start of the campaign, had a nightmare 90 minutes trying to keep a rampant City side quiet at the Etihad. He has yet to be on the winning side in the Premier League this season and there was no chance of that against City.

Midfielder - Michael Essien (Chelsea)

The Ghanian international was making his first start for Chelsea in the league this season and he got off to the worst possible start. His slack pass was pounced on by Southampton's Rodriguez who smashed the ball past Cech.

Midfielder - Shinji Kagawa (Manchester United)

The Japanese international has failed to make his mark at United and he was off the pace again against Spurs. There was a lot of support for the former Dortmund player to be given a chance at United but maybe the Premier League is too demanding for him.

Midfielder - Steve Sidwell (Fulham)

Caught on the ball for West Ham's opener, Sidwell was over-run in the heart of midfield. He has made 64 Premier League appearances for Fulham but this was arguably his worst. 

Forward - Darren Bent (Fulham)

A few seasons ago Darren Bent was a £24 million man and was scoring for fun. Today he looks like he is more likely to tip the scales at 24 stone than command such a high transfer fee. Hopefully the new manager will give him a new lease of life.

Forward - Jonathan Walters (Stoke City)

The Republic of Ireland international had a miserable afternoon at Goodison. He had one attempt on goal in the first half and even that missed by a mile. Mark Hughes will be looking to erase this game from his memory . . . so will Walters.  

Forward - Marouanne Chamakh (Crystal Palace)

Crystal Palace stand no chance of survival if he continues to lead the line. The former Arsenal man couldn't score in a brothel with super shagger Russell Brand in toe!
