The race for the top four is well and truly on for the Reds…
Liverpool put themselves the closest they have been to the top four all season following a clinical 2-0 away win at Southampton today, just two points separates them in sixth place and Manchester United in fourth.
Here’s how the Reds rated:
GK Simon Mignolet – 5
The Belgian goalkeeper is a good shot stopper but doesn’t look much else, the poor weather exposed his shocking distribution with a slippery ball.
CB Dejan Lovren – 4
Misplaced five of his first six passes and should have been sent off in the first half, he really hasn’t lived up to his exorbitant summer fee.
CB Martin Skrtel – 6
A calm presence at the back, without much to do due to a lack of attacking threat from Southampton.
CB Emre Can – 5
Had a poor referee to thank for not conceding a penalty, not what we have grown used to from the young German.
