PLAYER RATINGS AGAINST READING

Friends Of Liverpool

Player Ratings

1. Cavalieri: Made a few comfortable saves, wasn’t at fault for either goal. 6/10

 

2. Degen: Looked lively early on before fading in the second half.5/10

 

3. Carragher: Lead the back line with authority, a few nervy moments but took the game to Reading in extra-time. 8/10

 

4. Agger: Was at fault for the cross for Reading’s winner. Made a few forward runs in the game. 5/10

 

5. Insua: Was caught out of position time and time again, not a good display by the young Argentine. 4/10

 

6. Aquilaini: Played some good football in midfield showing some nice touches and passes, had a good chance to score late-on but headed wide. 8/10

 

7. Lucas: Poor game by the much-maligned young Brazilian, failed to dominate the midfield as he should have. 5/10

 

8. Benayoun: Worst game in a Liverpool shirt. Gave away the injury-time penalty that led to extra-time and then missed a simple chance with only the keeper to beat. 4/10

 

9. Kuyt: Another hard wording display by the honest but limited Dutchman. 5/10

 

10. Gerrard: Sent in the shot that gave us a half-time lead via a deflection, looked lively when he was on. 6/10

 

11.Torres: Went off injured on 26mins, not on long enough to be rated.

 

Subs;

 

Ngog: Came on for Torres but hardly got a kick. 5/10
Skrtel replaced tiring Degen. Skrtel didn’t ut out cross for Long’s goal. 4/10.

Babel: Came on for Gerrard on half-time, didn’t try a leg. 4/10
Starman: Alberto Aquilani. Dominatated midfield for long stretches with some quality passing.
So, a bad night for the Reds, we are out or the FA Cup now as well.

 

Next up Stoke away on Saturday at 12:45pm

Lets hope for a better showing from the team this weekend.
