Liverpool’s stand in skipper Jordan Henderson proved to be the match winner as Brendan Rodgers’s side extended their unbeaten run to 13 games in the league – moving to within two points of the top four in the process.

It was a tough night for the Reds though, who struggled to play with their usual free-flowing style that has taken them on this fantastic run. They were helped out by their goalkeeper on a couple of occasions, and needed Henderson to grab his third goal in his last three games to seal the victory.
Here’s how Liverpool’s players got on:
GK- Simon Mignolet 7
Made a couple of crucial saves during the first half to keep the game goalless, but his distribution continues to be a worry.
CB- Emre Can 5
Struggled with Neil Taylor all game. Probably one of his worst performances since he became a regular.
CB- Martin Skrtel 6
Was fairly solid as usual, but had some difficulty dealing with Sigurdsson and Gomis.
CB- Mamadou Sakho 6
Made some strong tackles throughout the game, but his passing was poor, and he gave the ball away cheaply
