How the Reds stars rated in a narrow 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Gunners.
In arguably the biggest game of the FA Cup fifth round Liverpool were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
After recording a 5-1 thrashing of the Gunners in the Premier League earlier in February, Brendan Rodgers’ men would have been confident going into this clash.
However, a close fought match in north London was decided by two fine goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski, with Steve Gerrard pegging one back with a penalty.
Here’s how the Reds rated:
Brad Jones – 5
Not a great game for the backup goalkeeper, with Jones looking uncomfortable throughout the game and getting nowhere near either goal.
Jon Flanagan – 7
Another decent display from the young right-back who is proving all his critics wrong with a sound defensive and attacking showing.
Martin Skrtel – 6
Got the better of Yaya Sanogo and generally looked strong at the back, although the defence were torn apart for the hosts’ second.
Daniel Agger – 6
Back in the starting XI after Kolo Toure’s disastrous performance against Fulham in the Premier League and the Dane looked composed at the back.
Aly Cissokho – 5
Was second best to Oxlade-Chamberlain throughout the game and the left-back’s passing was always wayward.
