The Brazilian is stupendous, as Sturridge bags brace…
Liverpool player ratings
- 22 Simon Mignolet – 7
Very solid performance from the Belgian. Made one very good save in the first half particularly.
- 38 Jon Flanagan – 7
He never fills fans with confidence when his name’s on the team sheet, but this is unfair. He hasn’t let them down all season, and he didn’t tonight either.
- 37 Martin Skrtel – 8
Really heroic performance from the Slovakian, who wore a headband after cutting his head at the weekend, which apparently only increased his warrior like qualities.
- 04 Kolo Touré – 7
Defensively clumsy at times, but he did make some impressive blocks, and ultimately helped his side keep a clean sheet.
- 20 Aly Cissokho – 5
Has the technical ability of Djimi Traore, and played some truly atrocious passes. To be fair to the Frenchman though, he works his socks off, but is simply not Liverpool quality.
