Henry Jackson 7 May 2017
Liverpool were held to a goalless draw by Southampton on Sunday, with far too many Reds players well below their best.
Liverpool 0-0 Southampton
Premier League, Anfield
May 7, 2017
Simon Mignolet (out of 10) – 6.5
A quiet afternoon for the goalkeeper, who was relatively untroubled against a Southampton team who refused to attack.
He made a strong second-half punch to clear the danger from a corner and was slightly lucky not to be penalised for a handball outside the area.
Nathaniel Clyne – 6
As per usual, a typical Clyne performance.
The right-back was his normal reliable self when it came to his defensive duties, but never quite offered enough going forward.
It has been an uninspiring run of form from him.
Joel Matip – 6
Matip will be given harder tests in a Liverpool shirt, but he was generally efficient.
The towering defender’s use of the ball was good, he was aerially dominant and he kept Manolo Gabbiadini quiet. One limp second-half tackle was the only real blip.
Dejan Lovren – 6
Like Matip, Lovren had very little to do throughout the afternoon, but we saw none of the errors that can occasionally let him down.
There really is very little else to say about him.
