Liverpool player ratings against Hull: Difficult night all round

Liverpool struggled to produce any real danger to Hull City as they lost 1-0 last night.

Liverpool fell to a disappointing defeat at the hands of Hull City last night, with the Tigers winning 1-0 to improve their chances of staying in the Premier League.

Brendan Rodgers will not be at all pleased with the way his team played, as the Reds saw their chances of a Champions League spot canter off into the distance.

Here are our player ratings for Liverpool last night.

Mignolet – 7

The form of the Belgian has been good in recent weeks and he looked like one of the only players in control of his position.

Can – 6

Cracks appeared when Hull players had the chance to run at him and attack him with some real pace.

Skrtel – 6

Battled hard as he always does and appeared difficult to get the better of in the air.

Lovren – 6

His timing looked a little off at times, but in possession he seemed in control.

Johnson – 5

Poor and looked far too lethargic during the game. Hinted at getting forward but showed no real presence.

Allen – 6

Did a lot of running off the ball and got into some good positions defensively.

Henderson – 6

Not his normal self but tried to get the team by the scruff of the neck and drive them forward.

Coutinho – 6

Didn’t have too much going on around him and wasn’t given the chance to create something.

Ibe – 6

Did well down one side, but lacking an end product. Looked like one of the only Liverpool players capable of making something happen.

Sterling – 5

Plenty of pace but didn’t really do anything with it and struggled to make the most of the space he found.

Balotelli – 5

Looked as though he didn’t really have any association with the team. His ability to be fouled was the biggest plus point.
