Hugo Lloris 8
You can see why he’s France’s No.1 choice. Made several fine saves to keep his team in the match. Used his feet well.
Anthony Reveillere 5
The right-back lasted less than 20 minutes before injury ended his evening prematurely. Did nothing of note in that time, and struggled to contain Emiliano Insua.
Jeremy Toulalan 6
The makeshift centre-back did a decent job of dealing with Fernando Torres & Andriy Voronin.
Dealt with Torres pretty well, giving the Spaniard no room to work in. Wasn’t shy in going forward either.
Aly Cissokho 7
Bags of energy and skill, delivered a couple of great crosses – the dynamic left-back is a star in the making and will surely end up at a bigger club than Lyon.
Kim Kallstrom 4
Looked well off the pace. Misplaced passes belied a lack of composure, and he also took a couple of poor free-kicks, which sailed over the bar. Not a good night for the Swede.
Jean Makoun 6
Put himself about and just about held Lyon’s midfield together, but was dominated by Lucas and Javier Mascherano.
Bafetimbi Gomis 7
Like Didier Drogba, Gomis combines power and guile to good effect. He troubled Liverpool’s centre-backs on several occasions.
Miralem Pjanic 5
The talented Bosnian was subbed off five minutes before half-time through injury, but did nothing much until then.
Michel Bastos 7
Seemed to be involved in most of Lyon’s best attacks, and his lively runs kept Insua honest. Has a terrific left foot.
Lisandro Lopez 7
In and out of the game, but Lopez must always be watched – he is one of those sly forwards who will emerge from a defender’s shadow and strike with chilling effectiveness. And so it proved.
Sidney Govou 6
Dropped to the bench for his nightclub antics, Lyon’s defrocked skipper had little time to make his mark.
Came on for Pjanic. Meh. Made no impact.
Lamine Gassama 6
Came on early for Reveillere. Didn’t let his team down, but barely caught the eye.
Pepe Reina 7
Alert to any danger and showed again that he is one of the most gifted keepers with the ball at his feet. Did nothing wrong for Lyon’s late goal.
Jamie Carragher 6
Lacks the pace to run the line in the manner of so many modern wing-backs, but Liverpool’s emergency right-back busted a gut
