CM) Lucas Leiva – 6.5
Solid in midfield, should get a chance in the first team ahead of Steven Gerrard at some point.
CM) Jordan Henderson – 6
Not up to his usual all-action standards, but has played too much and should really have been rested tonight.
AM) Philippe Coutinho – 8
Once again Liverpool’s main (and often only) creative outlet. Keeping him fresh and fit is vital for the Reds.
AM) Lazar Markovic – 6
Another poor performance from the Serbian wonderkid, who didn’t look a £20m player. Clearly needs time to settle.
