Look away now Reds.

This isn’t pretty.

Leicester 0-2 Liverpool: Match report and highlights as Vardy brace ruins Klopp’s night

GK) Simon Mignolet – 7/10

Made two brilliant saves in the first-half, but can’t be blamed for either of Vardy’s efforts. In truth, he kept us in the game early on, although the very harsh critic will claim he was too far off his line for the opener. We disagree. World-class goals are world-class goals.

DR) Nathaniel Clyne – 7/10

Decent night from Clyne, who got forward as much as possible and put a real shift in. One of the few players to emerge with credit.

DL) Alberto Moreno – 5/10

Poor, poor decision making again. Shoots when he should cross, crosses when he should shoot. Caught out of position time and time again.

DC) Dejan Lovren – 5/10

Struggled with Vardy’s pace badly upon his Premier League return. Sadly, Lovren actually cost more than Leicester’s entire starting XI.

DC) Mamadou Sakho – 5/10

Made some impressive last ditch tackles but shouldn’t have let the ball bounce for Leicester’s second.

DMC) Lucas – 6/10

Put plenty of effort in, but lacked class in central areas when we needed it. Lucas, Henderson and Can used to be Mascherano, Alonso and Gerrard. We looked so, so average in central midfield tonight.

MC) Jordan Henderson – 5/10 (Benteke – 65′)

Not a captain’s performance tonight. He doesn’t look fit to be fair, and was withdrawn just after the hour.

MC) Emre Can – 5/10

Like Moreno, lacked any sense of decision making skills. Found himself out of position and offered little creatively.

AMR) James Milner – 6/10

Half-decent from Milner for the first hour, but that fact we’re considering that praise sums up the nothingness of his season.

AML) Adam Lallana – 5/10

Doesn’t cross, shoot or do anything. He just holds on to the ball and does Cruyff turns. Never looked like having a genuine impact on the game.

FC) Roberto Firmino – 5/10

Not good tonight, but you feel sorry for him. The lack of creativity of the players surrounding him makes it practically impossible for him to change the game. Nobody finds his runs or gets close to him.


Benteke – 6/10 – Couldn’t change the game when he came on.

Allen – n/a

Teixeira – n/a
