Click through the list below to see who we ranked as the biggest villains in a desperate week for English football:
10) Raheem Sterling (Liverpool)
The young forward is in the process of haggling over a new contract to keep him at Anfield, and wants upwards of £100,000-per-week. On this evidence, he certainly doesn’t deserve such royalties. He looked disinterested for much of the evening, and needs to do more to prove his worth.
9) Federico Fazio (Tottenham Hotspur)
At fault for Mario Gomez’s crucial goal, which always left Spurs chasing the game. He failed to track the run of the German and quickly paid the price as he fired past Hugo Lloris. Fiorentina took full advantage of their lead, adding a second late on to put Fazio and co out of their misery.
