Liverpool 0, Bolton 0 - LFC Player Ratings & Tactics

Liverpool 0, Bolton Wanderers 0 Anfield, Liverpool (43,847) Player Ratings Simon Mignolet – 6 Glen Johnson – 5.5 Slow in possession, and not the fastest out of it. Emre Can – 7 The epitome of composure in the centre of the back three. He was never hurried or flustered, and also completed a Skrtel-esque 12 clearances during the game. Mamadou Sakho – 6.5 Javier Manquillo – 6 Efficient enough with his passing but offered little threat to Bolton down the right. Had a good chance to score in the second half but dragged his shot wide. Jordan Henderson – 7 continue reading

AFC Wimbledon 1, Liverpool 2 - LFC Player Ratings & Tactics

AFC Wimbledon 1, Liverpool 2 Cherry Red Records Stadium, Kingston upon Thames, London (4,784) Liverpool scorer: Gerrard 12′, 62′ Wimbledon scorer: Akinfenwa 36′ Player Ratings Simon Mignolet – 6 Made a great save to deny Wimbledon in the first half, reacting well to a close range shot to tip the ball over the bar. However, he was at fault for the first Wimbledon goal as he came for a corner and got nowhere near it, though he might have been being fouled by Akinfenwa. Made a vital tackle in stoppage time, preventing a late Wimbledon chance. Emre Can – 5.5 Wasteful in possession continue reading

LFC Player Ratings & Tactics - Arsenal 2, Liverpool 1

Arsenal 2, Liverpool 1 Emirates Stadium, That London (Att: 59,801) Liverpool scorers: Gerrard (59′ pen) Player Ratings Brad Jones – 6 A reasonable performance from Liverpool’s second choice keeper. Commands his area better than Mignolet, but still prone to the odd wayward kick out. Jon Flanagan – 5.5 Found himself in attacking positions quite regularly but failed to deliver. Lost Podolski for Arsenal’s second, but still a decent performance from the right back who switched to the left later in the game. Martin Skrtel – 6 Daniel Agger – 5.5 Good in possession but exposed for pace at Arsenal’s second goal. continue reading

LFC Player Ratings & Tactics - Bournemouth 0, Liverpool 2

Bournemouth 0, Liverpool 2 Goldsands Stadium, Bournemouth (Att: 11, 475) Liverpool scorers: Moses (26), Sturridge (60) Player Ratings Brad Jones – 6 Didn’t get to some crosses he came for, but that seems to be par for the course for Liverpool ‘keepers at the moment. The important thing was that he came and got enough on them, and did enough to keep the clean sheet. Martin Kelly – 6 Looks like an improvement on Glen Johnson. More solid in defence and makes himself available in attack even if he’s not quite as adventurous as Johnson. Martin Skrtel – 6.5 A good performance continue reading

LFC Tactics & Player Ratings - Liverpool 2, Oldham Athletic 0

Liverpool 2, Oldham Athletic 0 Anfield, Liverpool (Att: 44,102) Liverpool scorers: Aspas (54), Tarkowski (82 OG) Player Ratings Brad Jones – 6.5 A good performance from the Australian, who was there with important saves and interventions when called upon. Lack of game time could have meant a rusty performance but he maintained his concentration well, and his passing and distribution on the counter attack was generally good. Martin Kelly – 6 Fit nicely into the right full back position and should be challenging for Glen Johnson’s place in the side if he can stay fit. Put in some dangerous crosses in attack, continue reading

Oldham Athletic 3, Liverpool FC 2 - LFC Player Ratings - FA Cup

Oldham Athletic 3, Liverpool 2 Boundary Park, Oldham (Att: 10,295) Liverpool scorers: Suarez (17), Allen (80) Brad Jones – 5 Not his usual self this afternoon. There were rumours that he was playing with an injury, but there are no excuses for the fumble which let Oldham in to score their second goal. Andre Wisdom – 6 A typical steady performance from Wisdom. Suffered along with the rest of the defence, probably due to the lack of a leader such as Carragher or Agger. Martin Skrtel – 6 Battled with Matt Smith throughout the game and coped with the strikers physicality continue reading

Mansfield 1, Liverpool 2 - LFC Player Ratings FA Cup 3rd Round

Mansfield Town 1, Liverpool 2 Field Mill, Mansfield (Att: 7,574) Liverpool scorers: Sturridge (7), Suarez (59) *Brad Jones – 7 Was much busier than he might have expected. Dealt with everything that came his way and couldn’t do anything about the goal which was cleared against him by Coates before going in Andre Wisdom – 6 Played well in the first half but couldn’t get into the game as much as Robinson did on the left. Sebastian Coates – 5 Struggled to keep up on the occasions Mansfield counter attacked with pace, and was beaten in the air a couple continue reading
