Player Ratings as the Reds ride into the Last Four of Champions League

ALLEZ ALLEZ ALLEZ, ALLEZ ALLEZ ALLEZZZZZZZ. I was on press duty for another site I write for (sinning) so this gives me a chance to express some joy I had to hold back sitting around a bunch of journalists and City fans. Not seen a replay of anything so if my Dejan Lovren praise is a bit ‘yer da’ and I’ve missed some blindingly obvious errors I apologise. Onto the last four we go... All hail King Trent! Loris Karius …

Player Ratings as Liverpool's Undefeated Derby Streak Continues

"Need someone to do the post-match player ratings" was the request from AI's supremo Gags Tandon. "Great!", I thought; after wallopping City, Liverpool look like they can trounce any team in the world right now, and this will be my chance to dish 10 ratings all round for perhaps the greatest derby mauling of all time. How wrong I was. As I watched the game, I saw sparks and flickers of something, as Liverpool had the ball, but ultimately, Everton …

Player Ratings as Liverpool crush the Cityzens

That was unbelievable. Far and away Liverpool’s best display under Klopp. We’ve attacked better, yet scored three. There hasn’t been a better defensive display under the German. One foot into the semi-finals, surely? Score one at their place and they have to score five. Not rocket science is it, lads? Anyway, here’s me on player ratings trying not to give everyone a 10. Trent Alexander-Arnold, build him a statue Loris Karius (7): One of the easiest night’s of his life …
Player Ratings as Salah's Strike Downs Eagles

Player Ratings as Salah's Strike Downs Eagles

Palace away, I don't think I'll ever be able to enjoy it. Six goals and two wins in the last couple of trips there, but have either been fun? Credit to Palace, their main strength is that they don't make it fun for their opponents. Able to soak up the pressure and then race forward with quick, powerful players, they're arguably the best designed of the mid-table teams to beat any of the top six. Except at the moment, they're …
Liverpool player ratings as supreme Salah shines against Hornets

Liverpool player ratings as supreme Salah shines against Hornets

There was something so routine and yet so unbelievable about that. For a player who scores so frequently, it's mad that it's Mo Salah's first hat-trick. Even crazier that he decided to score four, not three. Liverpool 5-0 Watford - into the home-stretch of the season with a win. Andy Robertson's gang of beautiful lads Loris Karius (6): Another clean sheet, tidy in everything he did. Joe Gomez (5): Misjudges a header for Watford's first shot on target as Richarlison …
Player Ratings as United take 3 points at Old Trafford

Player Ratings as United take 3 points at Old Trafford

Liverpool were so 'un-Liverpool' like in attack, and so 'Liverpool' in their defence as they slumped to defeat at Old Trafford. The second half was a better performance and the ref was a nutcase, but that does not take away a shambolic defensive performance in first half. Loris Karius (5) - Left high and dry for both his goals. Made an excellent late tackle high up the pitch as Liverpool looked to salvage a point. Trent Alexander Arnold (2) - Horrid game …
Liverpool 0-0 Porto: Player ratings from a European snoozefest

Liverpool 0-0 Porto: Player ratings from a European snoozefest

Job done, professional work, blah blah blah. That was a little boring, wasn't it? Liverpool (5) 0-0 (0) Porto. Onto Old Trafford and into the quarter-finals. Another clean sheet for Big Loris Loris Karius (7): Keeps clean sheets, looks cool. And now he's done the simple stuff in a simple manner! Lively off his line in the first half, a couple of average saves. Good that he was kept in. Joe Gomez (6): A little rusty on his comeback but nothing to …
Player Ratings as a Patient Liverpool secure three points

Player Ratings as a Patient Liverpool secure three points

It was a tough opening half to the game as Newcastle defended in an organized manner, but once Salah put Liverpool ahead, there was always going to be only one winner. This is how the Reds fared. Loris Karius (8) - Was a spectator for most of the match, but when called upon, made a world-class save to deny Diame from equalizing at the end of the first half. Was always intent on releasing the ball at the earliest. Solid performance …
Player ratings as Liverpool hold off the Foxes

Player ratings as Liverpool hold off the Foxes

YESSSSSSSS! A 2-1 victory against Leicester City on December 30th isn't one that's going to go down in the record books, but at this moment in time, it feels like a big one. The Reds went behind to Jamie Vardy's goal but came back strongly in the second-half. That man Mohamed Salah provided a beautiful brace to secure three points and set us up perfectly for a big top-seven clash against Burnley on New Year's Day! How did everyone rate …
Player Ratings as Liverpool Advance to Knockout Stages in Style

Player Ratings as Liverpool Advance to Knockout Stages in Style

Loris Karius - 6 Didn't have all that much to do due to the brilliance of Liverpool's front four. However, there was one shaky moment in the first-half for the German goalkeeper who rushed off his line to close down a promising Spartak attack - a rather reckless decision albeit one that resulted in a free-kick due to an offside call. Alberto Moreno - 7 Wasn't particularly troubled down the left-hand side by the Spartak attack as he continued to …
