I praised Poch for his decisions on Saturday, today he just got some wrong. Paulinho is the most dull player he uses and it was always going to bite us not to have a real cover for central midfield on the bench. Rather get Dembele back next to Nabil and play Chadli as no. 10 for half an hour. The last substitute should have been Townsend as we needed someone to create anything of magic, not another converter. Team looked tired but thats not surprising given the tempo we are always playing. The 9 day break will do us favours. Lloris - 5 - first fault this season in the lague really. Shame it had to be against the deluded Pool Dier - 6.5 - mixed bag. Some class defending but in the end lost Balotelli for the winner and gave Lazar too much space Vertonghen - 6,5 - in my opinion not great but a solid game. To handle Sturridge is very very difficult. SOm eshit passing though. Rose - 5 - Ibe gave him a mare Walker - 6 - not convincing Mason - 5 Bentaleb - 5 - Both had a few good moments in offense esp Mason unlucky not to get the ball by Lamela but my god they invited Pool to score at times. They put Sturridge through more often than any Liverpool player and lost some balls too easily. They are both young and will learn. Lamela - 7 - Surprisingly solid game by Erik unlucky not to score but hell yes he got an assist. Improved Dembele - 7.5 - My MOTM, very good hold up play and finally first goal of the season shame he is soo one footed Eriksen - 6 - not a good day for Eriksen. Looked a bit tired and today is defensive work wasnt too good, Rose needed more help Kane - 7 - another goal and assist. Quiet aside from that, but he did his job as a striker Paulinho - 3 - joke of a player. I blame Poch for picking him Chadli - 5 - Needs to start a game Soldado - NET- Townsend would be more useful I guess. Or even Fazio for long balls.
