WES FODERINGHAM - 7
0 shots saved, 0 shots attempted. Easy!
JAMES TAVERNIER - 8
Did so well to win the ball back and play an outstanding ball inside the full back fro Candeias to set up Morelos for the opener. Much more like it.
JOE WORRALL - 7
Strolled it after the sending off, unlucky not to give away a penalty early doors.
CONNOR GOLDSON – 7
Did well enough, distribution a bit more improved with no more aimless long balls.
BORNA BARISIC - 6
Delivery was better, but still looks to be playing within himself a little bit.
GLEN KAMARA - 9
Outstanding performance. Excellent in possession, constantly on the move with his head up and knitted things together very well. Got the better of Mulumbu, which is no easy feat.
RYAN JACK - 8
Really good performance, making much better decisions in terms of moving the ball forward and picking up scraps. Some passes weren't coming off, but was pleasing to see the attempts.
SCOTT ARFIELD - 7
Clearly short of fitness and he did play well, however his decision making lets him down at crucial times which makes him a frustrating player for me. So many times he's almost involved in great move or nearly gets on the end of something but just doesn't quite manage it.
DANIEL CANDEIAS – 9
Terrific, involved in nearly every goal and a typical 'big game' performance from Candeias. His delivery in the first half in particular was on the money.
RYAN KENT – 8
Unplayable at times and offers so much vertical threat. Looked slightly frustrated with Barisic but will be enjoying the support the midfield runners are giving him now
ALFREDO MORELOS - 9.5
Has played a lot better and scored a lot less goals so I'm sure he'll take games like this. Everything he touched turned to goals, the 4th in particular is an excellent finish after digging it out of his feet. On fire at the moment.
STEVEN DAVIS - 3
Came on with 15 minutes left in a game that was very quickly over. Not massively involved.
ANDY HALLIDAY - 5
Took his goal very well, swept into the top corner and showed a dynamism and attacking threat that hadn't been evident from Barisic.
KYLE LAFFERTY - 2
On with ten to go but couldn't quite nick the goal he badly needs.
STEVEN GERRARD - 8
The red card was a huge factor, however we were well on top before that time. Noticeable ramping up of tempo & central attacking which was really welcome to see.
