Liverpool 1 - 2 Crystal Palace: Player Ratings

Liverpool 1 - 2 Crystal Palace: Player Ratings

It was a case of two steps forward and one step back for Liverpool, who's Champions League hopes took an almighty blow as Christian Benteke came back to haunt his old club. After a lacklustre opening to the game, Philippe Coutinho put the hosts in front with a stunning long-range free kick to seal his 10th goal of the season. It should have been 2-0 when Roberto Firmino squared the ball to an unmarked Emre Can but the German failed …
West Brom 0 Liverpool 1: Player Ratings

West Brom 0 Liverpool 1: Player Ratings

Disciplined, dogged and gritty. Those are probably the best three words to describe Liverpool's performance against West Brom. It was by no means the eye-catching, fluid football we've come to expect from Jurgen Klopp's side, but a moment of quality from Roberto Firmino was enough to seal another three points and bring The Reds a step closer to Champions League qualification. Simon Mignolet - 8 Had very little to do in between the sticks, but when he was called upon …

Stoke City 1 Liverpool 2: Player Ratings

A game of two halves if ever there was one. Good on Klopp and Liverpool that they decided there is a game to be played in the second half. On the balance of intent, one could say that Liverpool deserved to win the game. First away win for Liverpool in 2017. How important will this win be if we make Top 4? This is how the Reds fared. Simon Mignolet (8) - An outstanding performance from Mignolet. Was confident on …

Liverpool 2 - 2 Bournemouth: Player Ratings

Yet another team from the bottom half of the table. Yet another game where Liverpool drop points. It is no longer funny anymore. Liverpool might regret this at the end of the season as Liverpool failed to take advantage of a couple of other results. This is how the Reds fared today. Simon Mignolet (5) -  Small actions can have big outcomes. Liverpool started brightly, but Mignolet's dithering on the ball halted the momentum and spread nervousness all around. His releases …

Liverpool 3 Everton 1: Player Ratings

Liverpool continued their good home form against Top 6 rivals with a convincing win against the blue side of Liverpool. It's always a particularly satisfying win when beating Everton but doing the double over them means the Red side are totally dominant this season. Anyway, back to the game - here are the ratings for the game. Simon Mignolet (7) - Had very little to do. Made a good save from a deflected shot. He would appreciate more such afternoons. Nathaniel Clyne …

Manchester City 1 Liverpool 1 - Player Ratings

A mentally exhausting game ended with honours even, with both teams spurning big chances to settle the result. What looked to be a slow burner, exploded into life in a very watchable second half. This is how the Reds fared Simon Mignolet (6) - In spite of the attacking play from City, Mignolet had pretty little to do in terms of big saves. Got his leg to a ball cut in from the right. Could do nothing for the goal …

Rating Liverpool Players' Consistency in 2016-17 - PART TWO

There has been plenty of talk of Liverpool's inconsistencies throughout the 2016-17 campaign. After a hugely impressive start to the season, it's been another disappointing year and what had the potential to be a successful campaign, has turned into an unpredictable final few months. Liverpool have the best success record against teams in the top six and they picked up a number of commanding victories against their rivals at the beginning of the season. Wins against Arsenal and Everton on …

Liverpool 2 Burnley 1: Player Ratings

Liverpool have tended to oscillate between the joyful highs and the gut-wrenching lows. Today was somewhere down the middle and it was a great sight to see. Liverpool did not just win, but they found a way to win when they were way below the normal standard. Three points have never felt sweeter. Considering the direct nature of the game, I will be going direct on the match ratings piece. Simon Mignolet (6) - Could not do much for the …

Liverpool 3 Arsenal 1 - Player Ratings

The Robin Hoods of English football are back. Liverpool were well-deserved 3-1 winners at Anfield against an Arsenal side who fought back after the break following what was an abject first half from them. Goals from Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane gave the Reds a 2-0 lead and Gini Wijnaldum sealed the win for the Reds after Danny Welbeck pulled it back to 2-1 to send the nerves jangling. Here's how each player fared. Simon Mignolet - 6.5 He had precious …
