Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool Player Ratings v Zenit:

Reina: 6/10

Did little wrong, had an aimless swipe at a clearance but made a great save in the 2nd half from Hulk.

Johnson: 5/10

Was solid but had a quiet game overall.

Carragher: 6/10

Will be remembered for his mistake for Hulk’s goal, sadly, otherwise did very well.

Agger: 7/10

Played well in defence and attack, won the free-kick for Suarez’s first goal.

Enrique: 8/10

Another great display by the attacking full back, linked up well with his team-mates.

Lucas: 7/10

Worked hard in midfield to nullify the threat of Zenith, getting back to his destructive best.

Allen: 8/10

Showed his worth to the team with an energetic display and a good goal too.

Gerrard: 8/10

Pulled the strings in midfield and attack throughout, was unlucky to have his shot saved late on.

Henderson: 7/10

Put in an energetic display, won a lot of tackles and intercepts, ever-improving player.

Downing: 6/10

Made a decent contribution, worked hard and showed well for the ball, still lacks the final killer pass.

Suarez: 9/10

Two world class free-kicks to bring the Reds to the brink of winning the tie, was heart-broken at the end, quality.

So Liverpool bow out of the Europa League against Zenit St Petersburg at a raucous Anfield.

As Brendan Rodgers said later:

“We may have lost the battle but we are winning the war.”

“Yes, we are definitely on the way back, slowly but surely.”
