Given: 10 - Probably Man of the Match and definitely the keeper in the Premiership Team of the Week. Superhuman effort by the Lifford Lad, totally undeserving of the shower of sh*te in front of him.
Edgar: 4 - Good goal but conceded a penalty and was generally tortured by Babel. Showed why he`d probably be suited playing for Glenn at Norwich.
Coloccini: 1 - Quite simply Boumsong-esque by the Argentinian. Can`t head, was tortured for pace by Gerrard and offered no confidence for others who sought the leadership of our £10m acquisition. Again questions have to be asked over who bought the player as he seems unsuited to the Premier League.
Taylor: 2 - Like Coloccini, offered little as an alleged 'senior player`. Made sure that Seb Bassong walks back into the side after suspension rather than giving JFK a selection headache.
Enrique: 2 - Given a lesson by Gerrard, Kuyt and Benayoun when they cropped up on their right hand side.
Gutierrez: 3 - Definitely his worst game in black and white. Extremely wasteful in possession and gave away needless free kicks.
Butt: 4 - Like King Canute trying to stop the tide against the class of Gerrard and Mascherano.
Guthrie: 6 - One of the few players to emerge with a modicum of credit. Kept trying to go forward against his former club.
Duff: 4 - Unlucky with one offside position but otherwise totally lacklustre, weak as water and lazy in possession.
Owen: 3 - Anonymous. Sadly against his former employers the man desperate to score never even really got a sniff. Tragic stuff.
N`Zogbia: 5 - Fair to middling. Asked to play here, there and everywhere again. Bound to be off to Spurs in January after Harry Redknapp`s less than quiet proclamations about needing a left winger.
Ameobi: 5 - Made a decent impact in giving us something to lump the ball at. Not much else though.
