Lucas Leiva: 7/10
Admirably protected the back four, but visibly tired towards the end.
Joe Allen: 6/10
Just couldn’t get into the game, though he had a few nice touches and passes early on.
James Milner: 6/10
Took his penalty well, but this was yet another game that he struggled to really get into.
Jordon Ibe: 7/10
Burst forward very well and looked to keep the Bordeaux defenders on the back foot. He should take confidence from this performance.
Roberto Firmino: 5/10
Very poor from the Brazil international. Couldn’t find his rhythm at all.
Christian Benteke: 9/10
Started slowly but once he got going he was unstoppable. Took his goal fantastically and was unlucky with two more that were ruled out.
Emre Can: 6/10 – Carried on from where Joe Allen left off.
Adam Lallana: 6/10 – Failed to make an impact from Firmino, but by that point Reds were on the defensive.
Divock Origi: 5/10 – Had no time to do anything.
