Eight crazy first-half minutes helped Arsenal to a 4-1 win over Liverpool at the Emirates. Defeat for Brendan Rodgers’s side has meant that finishing in the Premier League’s top four is now highly unlikely.

Here is how the Reds players got on during the defeat:
GK- Simon Mignolet 5
Couldn’t do anything about Arsenal’s first, and made a couple of crucial saves early on. But should have done better for Mesut Ozil’s free-kick, especially lining up the wall, and could have perhaps done more for Alexis Sanchez’s goal.
CB- Emre Can 4
Sent off for two stupid challenges. The first yellow came for a late tackle of Santi Cazorla, and the second was produced for a ridiculous foul from behind on Danny Welbeck.
CB- Mamadou Sakho 5
Looked clumsy for most of the game, and probably needed Martin Skrtel alongside him.
CB- Kolo Toure 4
Had a shocking return to his former club. Looked sloppy and seemed happy to give the ball away.
