Liverpool will have to travel to Blackburn Rovers in a replay after being held at Anfield…
Liverpool 0-0 Blackburn Rovers – Simon Mignolet made one superb save, while Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge both had penalty appeals turned down in an otherwise quiet game at Anfield.
The most memorable moment of the game was arguably the injury to Martin Skrtel, who spend eight minutes receiving treatment before being carried off on a stretcher. We’re glad to hear that he should be fine!
Read the full Liverpool player ratings below:
GK) Simon Mignolet – 7/10
The Belgian made one excellent save to claw out Alex Baptiste’s goal-bound header, but otherwise had a trouble-free afternoon in the Reds goal. He’ll be happy with another clean-sheet, a ninth since the turn of the year.
RCB) Glen Johnson – 6/10
He had a couple of shaky moments on his return to the team, but was otherwise solid enough. The England international has attracted plenty of criticism from fans this season, much of it unfair, and he did okay today.
CB) Martin Skrtel – 5/10 (Toure – 11′)
Forced off after just ten minutes with a worrying head injury, and he spent eight of those minutes on the floor receiving treatment. Early reports suggest his head hit the floor, and he was knocked out by the awkward landing after jumping with Rudy Gestede. All Liverpool fans will no doubt wish him a speedy recovery.
LCB) Dejan Lovren – 6/10
The Croatian helped inspire another clean-sheet, and hopefully that will be another boost to his confidence. Lovren has been steadily improving since his return to the side earlier this year, and continued that trend here.
