Liverpool player ratings vs Everton

Published Add your comment

Steven Gerrard's final Merseyside derby ended in a stalemate as Liverpool drew 0-0 with Everton at Goodison Park.

The first 20 minutes was a war of attrition as the two club's felt each other out until Raheem Sterling was played in and put his shot wide. That was shortly followed up when Jordan Ibe smashed his 20-yard effort against the woodwork.

The second-period was much the same with Sterling and Rickie Lambert having chances for the Reds.

Roberto Martinez's men looked happy to walk away with a point however with five minutes remaining Ross Barkley slotted in Seamus Coleman but his shot was saved by Simon Mignolet.

Here's a look at how each Liverpool player performed on Saturday...

Player Ratings

Simon Mignolet 7.5

Virtually untroubled throughout the game but made a decent diving effort to stop a cross in the first-half and superbly denied Barkley late on.

Emre Can 7.5

A wonderful performance from the off. Emre Can used the ball with purpose, won plenty of headers and out-battled Romelu Lukaku throughout - the term "in his back pocket" came to mind.

Martin Skrtel 7

Stronger in the tackle and in the header, his battles with Lukaku and Stephen Naismith were entertaining and Martin Skrtel usually came out on top.

Mamadou Sakho 6.5

Solid defensively but looked nervous with the ball at his feet and produced moments of madness.

Alberto Moreno 6

Gave Liverpool plenty of options on the left-hand side and defended soundly, but his final ball into the box was not up to scratch and must improve.

Jordan Henderson 7

Full of energy and always looked to start breakaways for his side. Got into a verbal war with Naismith and his tendancy to do so will someday see him sent off.

Lucas 6

Used the ball when he was on the pitch before limping off with injury.

Jordan Ibe 8 (Man of the Match)

A top performance from the inexperienced youngster. His pace caused Bryan Oviedo all sorts of problems throughout on the right-wing and almost scored a miraculous goal in the first-period.

Steven Gerrard 6

An anti-climax of a performance based on the build-up. Sloppy in possession and did not have the same effect on the game as usual. Almost scored with a free-kick before the break.

Philippe Coutinho 6.5

Struggled in the first-period and was clearly being targetted by Mohamd Besic and Gareth Barry. Began to find space after half-time and failed to capitalise on Barry's error.

Raheem Sterling 7

Lacked service at times but caused the Everton back-four plenty of problems when he had the ball at his feet. Missed a couple of decent chances where he should have passed instead of shot.


Joe Allen 6

Improved from the Bolton game on Wednesday and used the ball much better

Daniel Sturridge 5.5

Disappointing and looks to be missing match practise.

Rickie Lambert 5.5

Tried hard when he came on late and missed a decent snap-shot chance.
