Football - FA Premier League - Liverpool FC v Crystal Palace FCSUCH a frustrating day, especially with others dropping points. The Palace fans sang: “You must be sick of us.” They’re not wrong. Then we all got absolutely soaked. Brilliant. Maybe international breaks aren’t so bad after all.

Simon Mignolet: 4

If your USP is saving things, you need to save more. Did claim a couple of crosses, but want him coming for the second goal. Kicking and distribution in general was appalling.

Nathaniel Clyne: 7

The ex-Palace player dealt with the threats presented to him well, aside from the time he picked up a yellow. Some nice crossing, too.

Alberto Moreno: 6

Also didn’t get caught out too much, but not his best day on the ball.

Martin Skrtel: 6

Some good sliding interventions in the rain. Could have got us in trouble though when he tried to run through the centre like Alan Hansen.

Mamadou Sakho: 6

Oh no…. injury didn’t look good at all. Tried to carry on when he saw Dejan Lovren coming on. Not sure that helped.

Lucas Leiva: 7

Largely impressive. Think he prefers playing central in a three, though.

Emre Can: 5

For all the passing statistics that are thrown at me, I still can’t get over how often he passes to the other team under no pressure whatsoever. Terrible on the first goal.

Neat and tidy, some lovely touches, without too much in terms of an end product. Might just copy and paste that.

Philippe Coutinho: 7

Took his goal really well. Looked the most likely second half, too. Great nutmeg.

Jordon Ibe: 7

Very bright early on when his team mates seemed half asleep. Faded slightly, but great to see him confident.

Christian Benteke: 4

Not a great day for the big Belgian. None of his chances were sitters, but you still want him burying one of them.


Roberto Firmino: 5

Strangely subdued, and took an absolutely dreadful corner that might have drawn a smirk from Iago Aspas.

Divock Origi: 5

Couldn’t really get into it. Didn’t have long, like

Dejan Lovren: 6

Nothing mad. Which is a good start.
