Scored the games crucial opening goal with a powerful header from a Suarez corner, and passes the ball superbly. Finally looked completely comfortable in the holding midfield role, too.
- 10 Coutinho – 9
Coutinho’s best performance in a Liverpool shirt. He was simply brilliant. Time and time again he skinned opponents playing in a deeper central midfield role, and ran the show with his passing. Everything good Liverpool did went through him, and he deserved his standing ovation when subbed late on.
- 14 Jordan Henderson – 7
Kept it very simple, and was especially combative early on. Interestingly, no other Englishman has created more chances than Henderson in the Premier League this year.
