Tottenham Hotspur

Hugo Lloris Great save to deny Balotelli in the opening minutes. Not at fault for any of the goals. 6/10

Eric Dier Had a tough test against Sterling and Balotelli – and struggled. The young full-back recklessly gave away the second-half penalty. 4

Younes Kaboul Let Balotelli go on too many occasions and struggled with the movement of the forward three. 5

Jan Vertonghen The Belgium international was not his usual assured self at the back. 5

Danny Rose Bombed down the wing from left-back, but largely wasteful and out-of-position for the first goal. 5

Etienne Capoue Let Henderson go too early for the opener and largely anonymous. 5

Nabil Bentaleb Overran in midfield and the Algeria international was substituted with over 30 minutes left. 4

Nacer Chadli Should have scored at the end of the first half but the Belgium missed the chance to beat compatriot Mignolet. Probably Spurs’s biggest attacking threat. 6

Christian Eriksen Poor delivery all afternoon. Subbed with over half an hour to go. 4

Eric Lamela Poor decision-making and gave the ball away far too often. 3

Emmanuel Adebayor Little service and often left isolated on his own in attack. 5

Substitutes

Andros Townsend Gave the ball away with his first touch which lead to Liverpool’s third goal. 5

Moussa Dembele Much more involved than any other Tottenham midfielder. 5

Ben Davies N/A

Liverpool

Simon Mignolet Looked a bit uncertain in the opening exchanges, great save to deny Chadli at the end of the first half, otherwise untroubled. 6

Javi Manquillo Dealt with Chadli and Rose well but booked for an ill-timed challenge on the latter late in the second half. 7

Mamadou Sakho Looked like he had a mistake in him but earned his clean sheet alongside Lovren. 7

Dejan Lovern Tackled well and defended brilliantly when called upon. 8

Alberto Moreno Much-improved from his Etihad showing and scored a great goal after dispossessing Townsend. 8

Jordan Henderson Great movement and pass for the Liverpool opener, ran the show in the middle of the park. 9

Steven Gerrard Not as influential as Henderson alongside him, dispatched his penalty well. 7

Joe Allen Struggled to get in to the game and was booked for a stupid challenge. Taken off with half-an-hour to go. 5

Raheem Sterling (Man-of-the-match) Brilliant dribbling all afternoon and took his goal really well. Looked the real deal. 9

Mario Balotelli Missed two good headed chances in the opening 15 minutes and worked uncharacteristically hard. Played well and subbed with 30 minutes to go. 7

Daniel Sturridge A great all-round game from the Liverpool man, setting up his team-mates well throughout. 8

Substitutes

Lazar Markovic Struggled to get involved. 6

Emre Can Steady showing in the middle of the park. 6

Jose Enrique N/A
