A big goal by Danny Ings to open up the second half proved futile against Norwich City as Russell Martin got the equaliser and sealed the Canaries a 1-1 draw against Liverpool.
The ex-Burnley striker has arguably been one of the less-hyped summer signings by Liverpool, but earned his paycheck as a substitute for Christian Benteke at half time. His impact was immediate:
Ings’s first Liverpool goal earned him a solid 8/10, but the man he replaced had a rather poor performance which sees him at the other end of the spectrum in our Liverpool player ratings.
Here, fanatix assesses how the Anfield outfit performed on a disappointing day for Brendan Rodgers…
GK: Simon Mignolet – 7/10
No need to lynch Mignolet for an otherwise decent outing after a defensive breakdown allowed Martin to score Norwich’s equaliser.
CB: Mamadou Sakho – 7/10
Three tackles and four clearances capped a decent day for Sakho after he was preferred to Dejan Lovren. One bad mistake does not entirely diminish his otherwise solid display.
CB: Martin Skrtel – 6/10
It was three tackles and three clearance for Skrtel, one which almost led to a goal for the Reds. But it was his mistake from the Norwich corner which cost his team much-needed points.
CB: Emre Can – 7.5/10
Managed a shot, a tackle, a whole bunch of clearances and drew two fouls upon slipping back into the defensive three. It was a rough second half, but Can did his part as well as anyone could ask.
