Danny Murphy has claimed that James Rodriguez was exploited in the Merseyside derby due to his lack of willingness to track back.

That said, Rodriguez did manage to put in a decent attacking shift for the Toffees, as he successfully completed all of his attempted dribbles and also registered three key passes, coupled up with a rather impressive 88% pass accuracy and 10 out of his 18 duels were won, as per the website.

Indeed, while the primary role of Rodriguez is to attack down the right-wing and try to create chances for his teammates, he did not really cover himself in glory when he needed to do his defensive duties.

Speaking in his column for the Daily Mail, the former Liverpool ace said that Andy Robertson capitalised from the lack of willingness to defend from the Everton star for the first goal as the Scot was able to corss in for Sadio Mane to slot home for Jurgen Klopp’s team.

However, while his defensive work is arguably not his main priority in the Blues side, the attacking midfield player may need to put more of a shift in when they come up against the bigger teams, as Murphy suggests.
