Liverpool v Arsenal – Player Ratings by AM
Mannone – 6
He wasn’t disturbed in the first half, but didn’t look quite confident handling crosses and aerial balls. Made one good save from Shelvey, but spilled another from the same player and must be thankful to Vermaelen for being first to the rebound. The saves weren’t anything you wouldn’t expect a goalkeeper at this level to not deal with.
Gibbs – 6
He contributed more offensively, than defensively. He must be thankful that Podolski tracked back a lot and helped him out, because at a lot of time he was found out of position. But he pushed back Johnson with his forward runs. Needs to improve defensively though.
