Liverpool 3-3 Arsenal – Player ratings

118

For the second season in a row a late, late goal denied us three points at Anfield. Not our best performance, but a game we ought to have won given the position we got ourselves into.

Here’s how the players rated.

Could he have done better with the last one? No chance with the second and the twats on BT saying he should have pushed it wide ignored the fact that he did.

Tidy enough on the ball, but part of a back four that wasn't at its best tonight.

Uncharacteristically his passing stats were low, but made 5/5 headed clearances, 7/9 clearances, 100% aerial duels and made 8 ball recoveries. Read one move brilliantly to clear from inside our 6 yard box.

Would have liked to see him closer to Benteke for that last ball into the box, the kind he usually competes well for.

Passing was poor but was 4/4 for tackles, 7/7 clearances, 100% aerial duels but it's becoming more and more obvious the partnership with Ramsey is struggling to gel in any way.

See above re: the partnership. A great goal got us level, but something has to happen to help shore up a midfield which is really too open for the opposition.

Found a bit more space in the second half, but never became as influential as he has been. Feeling a bit fatigued by the looks of it.

Made that great chance for Giroud but that was it. Otherwise really poor. So careless for the first Liverpool goal, on his heels all night, and his decision making when we had chances to attack was woeful

Created two chances, got an assist (and a half assist for Giroud's second), and although his passing wasn't quite perfect, he worked his hole off all night long to the point where he was knackered. Also, for a winger to make 5/6 tackles (5 of which were in our half) tells you how switched on he was.

Two cracking goals from a man with a staple in his noggin. As much as Campbell he deserved to be on a winning side tonight.

If Sunderland was a little step forward, this was like one the other way.

Not really on long enough to rate, but he didn't add the kind of calm we needed
