Johnson did relatively well at Anfield last time around, but Ronaldo still managed to get one-on-one with the Englishman on a number of occasions, much to the terror of the watching Liverpool crowd. Whoever gets the nod will need to defend bravely and intelligently – as reckless tackles and over-enthusiastic closing down will draw fouls, and enable the world’s best player to leave them for dead.
