Brad Jones 7.2
Did not put a foot wrong in goal for Liverpool, although he did not have a lot to do. Looked comfortable for set pieces and made a important save in the last couple of minutes to deny Olympiacos a goal.
Glen Johnson 5.9
Johnson was Liverpool’s worst defender on the pitch. He constantly gave the ball away in dangerous areas and would not get back down the pitch for his defensive duties when going forward. Johnson did nothing to please Liverpool fans who want Johnson out of the team for the coming season.
Martin Kelly 6.2
Looked comfortable at the back and passed the ball very well while in danger. Got forward a couple of times, but looks more assured in his defensive job. Kelly performed better than Johnson when he was on the pitch, making Liverpool a lot tighter at the back.
Martin Skrtel 8.8-Man Of The Match
Skrtel was superb at the back for Liverpool today and showed manager Brendan Rodgers that he remains Liverpool’s best defender. Skrtel made a number of key interceptions in the game to stop certain goals and looked comfortable while on the ball. Skrtel was dominant in the air winning every header, proving that Lovren should partner Skrtel at the back for Liverpool this season.
Kolo Toure 7.3
Toure Came under fire a lot from Liverpool fans last season after a number of costly errors, but put in a comfortable showing for Liverpool in this game. Toure is currently Liverpool fifth choice defender showing they have a vast number of defensive options if needed.
Sebastion Coates 7.0
Coates put in another comfortable showing for Liverpool but it currently way behind in the pecking order for the Reds. Looked solid in the air and showed he is a solid defender that could put him in the shop window for clubs that are interested.
Jose Enrique 7.2
Enrique looks to have recovered from the injury that plagued him last season after another impressive first half showing here. Made some critical interceptions and tackles and got forward when he needed to.
Jack Robinson 6.7
Robinson got forward a number of times but lacks a final ball that will make him a better player, which will hopefully come with experience. Comfortable in defence but was vulnerable when he galloped forward too many times.
Steven Gerrard 8.1
Gerrard showed all of his experience in this game and does not look like he needs pre-season to prepare himself for the coming season. Controlled the tempo of the Liverpool play and made a delightful pass to Sturridge in the build-up to the goal. Made some great tackles and passes in the game and showed why he is such an important player to Liverpool for the coming season.
Emre Can 7.4
Can only played 45 minutes but looked impressive during the time he was on the pitch. Can showed he’s got good pace and strength to succeed in the Premier League.
Jordan Henderson 7.8
Henderson played the full 90 minutes and showed what an engine he has. Ran all day and showed great link-up play with his fellow midfield players and forwards. Henderson will be a key player for Liverpool this season with his engine and work effort being pivotal to the Liverpool cause.
Lucas Leiva 6.3
Lucas has a point to prove to Rodgers to prove he should be in Liverpool’s first team plans, but on the basis of this performance Liverpool have better options. Gave away a number of needless free-kicks, which he consistently does, and did not look good on the ball.
Joe Allen 6.2
Allen had a very similar performance to Lucas and ultimately failed to impress once again. Allen gave away the ball a number of times, with one of them very nearly costly. The Welshman could not get his passing together and ended a number of Liverpool attacks.
Lazar Markovic 7.5
Markovic made an impressive debut and gave glimpses of what he is about. Markovic was at his best when running at defenders and had a decent chance but curled it over the bar. The Serbian showed Rodgers he could be a key player this season after showing good signs here.
Raheem Sterling 8.2
Sterling scored the only goal of the game and showed great instinct and finishing to get into the position and finish it off. Sterling looked lively all game and was always on the move. With the departure of Suarez then Sterling could be in for a big season this year.
Coutinho looked good on the ball and always looked dangerous on the ball. The Brazilian looks more dangerous when playing in a more central position but still threatened from the wing. Coutinho made a number of superb passes and linked up well with the forward players.
Jordan Ibe 6.3
Ibe did not get to many minutes to make his mark on the game but looked lively. Ibe made a number of good runs and put in Joe Allen for a great chance at the end of the game after a superb run and pass.
Daniel Sturridge 6.8
Sturridge had a very quiet game in front of goal but showed goo link up with the midfielders. The England international scuffed a shot that deflected to Sterling for the goal but did not have the chance to get around the box as he would have liked.
Rickie Lambert 6.5
Lambert came on in the closing minutes off the game but held the ball well up front to take the pressure of the defenders.
