The Reds continue their impressive form and look a good bet for the top four…
Liverpool narrowed the gap between them and Manchester United, in fourth place, to just two points after a vital away victory at Southampton today.
Here’s how the Reds players rated:
GK Simon Mignolet – 5
Exposed today in poor weather, the Belgian is a good shot stopper but his distribution with a slippery ball was shocking.
CB Dejan Lovren – 4
Misplaced five of his first six passes and should have been sent off in the first half, standard ineptitude from the Croatian.
CB Martin Skrtel – 6
A calm presence at the back, without much to do because of a lacking attacking impetus from Southampton.
CB Emre Can – 5
Had a poor referee to thank for not conceding a penalty, other than that he looked off colour comparative to what we have seen him do.
