Playing ratings vs Swansea City – everyone impresses, with Adam Lallana excellent

Posted by

We rate the Liverpool players for their performances against Swansea City…

Liverpool 4-1 Swansea City – The Reds moved up to eighth with a thoroughly dominant performance at Anfield, with a brace from Adam Lallana, a goal from Alberto Moreno, and an own goal from Jonjo Shelvey deciding the game.

Gylfi Sigurdsson briefly made it 2-1, but Swansea were otherwise well beaten, as Liverpool produced a performance reminiscent of their run to second place in the Premier League last season.

Read the full Liverpool ratings below:

GK) Simon Mignolet – 5

Thrust back into the starting line up after an injury to Brad Jones, Mignolet had little to do but his kicking was once again poor.

RCB) Emre Can – 8

Given a start in a central defensive role and was excellent, read the game well and his ability to start moves from the back was a real asset to his side.

LCB) Mamadou Sakho – 6

French international Sakho now seems to be a regular in the Liverpool defence – he was solid, but sometimes a little shaky in possession.

CB) Martin Skrtel – 7

A dominant display from Skrtel, who was also a huge threat from attacking set pieces. The only blemish was a silly yellow card that rules him out of the New Year’s Day game with Leicester City.

DM) Lucas Leiva – 6

With his side dominating most of the game, it was only really a job of sweeping up that was needed from Lucas – but he did it well.
