DC) Mamadou Sakho – 5/10
Lost his physical battle with Demba Ba who started up top for the Blues. In possession, Sakho was sloppy, and he looked clumsy when carrying the ball into midfield.
DL) Jon Flanagan – 6/10
Stifled Chelsea offensively, but when he got in positive attacking areas, he didn’t look like he had the pace or the trickery to actually create a chance.
MC) Steven Gerrard – 5/10
In the first 45 minutes, Gerrard was the best player on the pitch, but then it all went wrong. Just before half-time, the skipper slipped and gave the ball to Demba Ba, who went and scored. In the second-half, he looked like he was desperate to make up for the error, and had way too many shots from distance. If his mistake costs the Reds the title, it would be absolutely heartbreaking for everyone at the club.
