How we rated the Irons at Liverpool

Hugh hands out his marks

Fabianski: Two very uncharacteristic fumbles in the first half which could have been very costly and I do wish he would release the ball quicker to set up attacks. Couple of saves but not quite as reassured as we know he can be 6

Couval: What a fabulous buy this guy is turning put to be. Defended superbly and always ready to get forward and try setting things up 7+

Balbuena: In pretty good form recently – did well again. Diop will have a tough time getting his place back if this goes on 7

Ogbonna: As reliable as ever – one odd moment when caught out but the guy is heroic for us at the heart of the defence 7

Cresswell: No complaints with the scouser today :-), back and front he did very well 7

Masuaku: It would be far too easy to make him a hate figure for the penalty and some are still not sure it should have been given, but he he did really well going forward over the rest of the 90 and caused the defence concern 7

Rice: As competitive as ever but gave away a dangerous free kick and there was the occasional misplaced pass. Perhaps I’m being a tad over critical 7

Soucek: The bloke never puts a foot wrong. Top performance as ever 8

Fornals: Fine goal and love the guy’s energy and enthusiasm. Well done young man 7+

Bowen: Always running and taking up good positions – the guy spelt danger  7

Haller: We’ve seen enough of Haller to know  he’s never a £45 million player. How much does that make Antonio worth. Offered very very little but thankfully there are other players who  are and can score. 3


Yarmolenko: Worked hard and started to make things happen 6

Lanzini and Benrahma were late arrivals on 87th minute.

  1. Apart from marking Fornals down by a point for his decision making when players were in better positions hard to disagree COYI !!!
