Markovic, Gerrard and Balotelli secure points for Reds…
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.
