Brendan Rodgers was left lamenting an individual error again this afternoon as Liverpool drew 1-1 with Everton in a fiery Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.
The Reds took the lead through Danny Ings’s 41st-minute header, but gifted Everton an equaliser before half time courtesy of some very average defending.
Emre Can was probably the primary culprit as his scuffed clearance fell at the feet of the deadly Romelu Lukaku, and his mistake earns him a 5/10 in our player ratings.

GK: Simon Mignolet – 8/10
Kept the visitors on level terms in the first half with a couple of fantastic saves from Steven Naismith and James McCarthy. Less convincing when dealing with crosses after the interval.
CB: Emre Can – 5/10
Certainly embraced the derby atmosphere, most notably in a first-half scrap with Ross Barkley. Liverpool fans will admire his enthusiasm, but his scuffed clearance gifted Lukaku his goal.
CB: Martin Skrtel – 6/10
Never given a moment’s piece by Lukaku. The Belgian probably won their personal battle but Skrtel was by no means bullied and limited the in-form striker’s space inside the penalty area.
CB: Mamadou Sakho – 7/10
Managed to go the 90 minutes relatively gaffe-free despite Everton constantly pressurising him in possession. Decent defensively, making a couple of strong tackles on the edge of the box.
