Liverpool 1 - 1 Hearts Europa League 2012/13 Match Report

Europa League 2012/13
Liverpool  1 - 1 Hearts

at Anfield Stadium
30 - Aug - 12 20.05 ( GMT +1 )

A late solo-effort from Luis Suarez sealed Liverpool's place in the group stages of the Europa League after they beat Hearts 2-1 on aggregate.
The Reds drew 1-1 at Anfield on Thursday night despite controlling play for large spells of the game and carving a multitude of opportunities to put the tie beyond their visitors.

Match Rating Liverpool vs Hearts

Liverpool play with their usual 4-3-3 formation. the surprise inclusion of Adam Morgan as Right Forward and Stewart Downing as Left Back prove to be quite success. they both do their part quite well. Unlucky for Morgan to have his first Liverpool Goal disallowed. Meanwhile, Carragher and Henderson back to starting lineup and did a decent job.

Liverpool doesn't play convincing, they almost lost when Templeton scores due to Pepe Reina mistake, but a few minutes later Luis Suarez again safe the day for Liverpool.
He scores a goal from a tight angle and difficult situation to make sure Liverpool through to the next round.
Player Ratings:

Reina - 5.5 - a Big Mistake from the reliable GK, actually he done a decent job from the back to help the defender keep the possession.

Kelly - 6.0 - a good enough performance from the Right back. unfortunately his cross is such a waste from the right flank; he often confused where to pass.

Skrtel - 6.5 - had a good game, great tackle and positioning from the defender

Carragher - 6.5 - had a good game, good vision, always provide options to pass

Downing - 7.0 - done superbly as a Leftback, his crossing was magnificent.

Allen - 7.5 - BOSS the tackle, he has done a great job to fill Lucas position

Gerrard - 7.5 - had a decent game, make a few error from his pass but his game maker skill is still brilliant

Shelvey - 8.0 - MOTM, control the midfield superbly, he would have a good future if he keep up his playing at this level

Henderson - 7.0 - his through pass was a Killer. he has done a good job.

Morgan - 6.0 - unfortunate not to score, but he had a quite decent game.

Suarez - 7.0 - Score the Winning goal, he actually doesn't play in his top level, miss a few chances.

Sterling -6.5- Lively since he came on, always provide option from the right. 
Borini - 6.0 - Anonymous since he came in. doesnt have a single chance but quite good to provide option and pass.
