CaughtOffside rates the Liverpool players for their performances against Middlesbrough…
Liverpool 2-2 Middlesbrough – Suso scored the winning penalty in an extraordinary shoot-out, as Liverpool won 14-13 on spot kicks after 15 penalties each. Albert Adomah was the unfortunate man to hit wide for the visitors.
Despite missing in the shootout, Patrick Bamford scored a penalty in the 120th minute to take the game to penalties. His goal cancelled out Suso’s strike, which looked likely to be the winner. Earlier in the night, teenager Jordan Rossiter gave the Reds the lead, only for Adam Reach’s header to cancel it out.

GK) Simon Mignolet – 4
Another demonstration of his frailties, with his weaknesses from crosses and commanding his area all too clear to see. He is running out of chances.
RB) Javi Manquillo – 6
A solid performance from the Spaniard who is getting an astonishing amount of game-time due to a variety of injuries.
