CaughtOffside rates the Liverpool players for their performances against Stoke City…
Liverpool 1-0 Stoke City – Glen Johnson headed a dramatic late winner as the Reds took a vital three points at Anfield. The under-fire full-back received a cut on his head for his troubles, but will surely be delighted nonetheless.
After a turgid first-half with few chances for either side, Liverpool steadily began to assert themselves on the game, and deservedly struck with a couple of minutes remaining. Bojan missed a late chance for the visitors.
Read the full Liverpool ratings below:
GK) Simon Mignolet – 7
The under-pressure goalkeeper had little too do for much of the afternoon, but was forced into making one good save as he came out to smother the on rushing Mame Biram Diouf, and was on hand again to stop Bojan in stoppage time.
RB) Glen Johnson – 7
Sloppy in possession, and could have cost his team with an error on the edge of his own penalty area. But all of that will be forgotten after his dramatic late winner.
