Swansea 0 – 0 Liverpool
This was a game billed as the battle of the pass-masters and that is what it turned out to be as both sides cancelled eachother out with similar strategies.
Chico Flores gets my pick for MOTM as he managed to quell the ever present threat of the inform Luis Suarez, and use the ball effectively to begin some of Swansea’s fast flowing attacking moves, which often came through Pablo Hernandez.
Chico won 4/4 of his tackles and 5/8 of his ground duels (63%), whilst managing a total of 9 clearances over the course of the game.
Also, despite the presence of the likes of Leon Britton and Joe Allen, Chico came out the most accurate passer on the pitch with an impressive 95% of his passes reaching their destination.
The Spaniard even attempted more passes than Britton, and his total of 61 was only beaten by Gerrard, De Guzman and Hernandez. 6 of his passes were received in the final third of the pitch and no player made more interceptions than he did, with 6.
