Liverpool player ratings v Burnley: Sterling hits winner, but Sakho is best

Posted by

Here’s how re rated the Liverpool players this Boxing Day…

The Reds nicked a 0-1 win away to Burnley today, and here’s how we rated the players…

GK) Brad Jones (Simon Mignolet 15′) – n/a

Subbed off injured early on, but still managed one poor moment when he forgot to dive for a shot that hit the post.

DRC) Kolo Toure (Emre Can 45′) – 6

The Ivorian didn’t too much wrong at the back for the Reds, but was pulled for young German Can at half-time. Unsure whether an injury affected the veteran, or whether the switch was tactical.

DC) Martin Skrtel – 6

Constantly put Sakho under pressure with unnecesary passes, and did the same with Mignolet when the Belgian came on. Poor marking, and poor aerially – but we kept a clean-sheet, nonetheless.

DLC) Mamadou Sakho – 8

Liverpool’s best player. The Frenchman is often criticised for his ability on the ball, but he actually showed class when in possession, turning out of some difficult situations, particularly in the first-half.
