Liverpool player ratings v Tottenham, with Emre Can in ‘Rolls Royce’ mood again

Posted by

Markovic, Gerrard and Balotelli secure points for Reds…

Twitter literally exploded when Mario Balotelli scored tonight…
(Video) Mario Balotelli’s goal for Liverpool v Tottenham!

GK) Simon Mignolet – 7

Could have arguably done better for Harry Kane’s first, but made up for it with a genuinely incredible save from an Erik Lamela drive… Held on to some long range drives well too, and cannot be faulted for Tottenham’s 2nd – which was offside. Should get credit for his distribution for our opener, also.

DRC) Emre Can – 9

Our Man of the Match… The German was typically cool and composed on the ball when used on the right of the back-three, although there were  small question marks raised by some about his positioning for Kane’s goal. Still, his tackling, his passing – and his brilliant cameo in central midfield has left us gagging for more. Can’s going to be, and probably already is, a really brilliant footballer.

DLC) Mamadou Sakho – 6

A bit nervy, especially in the first-half – and was booked for  rugby tackle on Mousa Dembele after he lost possession! Defended bravely late on.

DC) Martin Skrtel – 7

Liverpool fans take Skrtel for granted, sometimes. Tonight, he was defensively flawless, against the top flight’s in-form striker.
