Went for Sturridge, bizarre to say when he scored a hatrick and got an assist but don't think Suarez was at the races yesterday lol feel stupid even typing that!
Basically Suarez didn't do much well but when he did something right it was a goal for him or Sturridge.
Think Sturridge did more good in the build up play and had better movement and his goal came at an important time to kill off the game. His assist for Suarez was beautiful under pressure and can't believe some don't think he intended it, he has been doing stuff like that since day one.
I know our defence was poor in general but I thought Skrtle was outstanding defensively and on top of that he scored 2 vital goals to keep us in the game. It is hard to go against a hat trick scorer and Sturridge , they both did their job very well but I felt Skrtle went a bit above the call of duty.
Attacking full backs creating width and extra players forward in attack will be a big part of our future title challenges. Thought Johnson did that well especially in the first half and got me excited. So gave my vote to him. Less impact in second half, but think his attacking play set us up well.
Had to vote Glen Johnson. I've been extremely harsh on him and called him the worst LB/RW in Premier League 2014. This game is enough to shut me up and admit that I was too harsh. Even when he doesn't receive the ball, he opens up that right side. And defensively he was pretty damn solid too.
1. The first half our attacking players didn't play very well giving the ball away too easily. Johnson was quite solid at the back for the whole game, nothing went through his zone and he was often involved in attacks, also managed to make one direct assist and was involved in two other goals.
2. Similar to the above can be said about Skrtel (with two goals and an assist), but.. oh how I hoped that I'll see the old GJ back, it's been so long that I thought it would never happen again in red shirt. It happened this game and I loved it so much that I have to give it to him.
Special mention to Sktrel, Sturridge and Suarez, think they all deserve it as well. I can't believe that I'll write this after hat-trick + assist, but Surez wasn't at his best, I thought Sturridge played slightly better overall, but that speaks for the player Luis is nowadays - he's so damn good that even when not his usual best, he can score three and assist another.
