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

Join AI Pro

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 be worried about. Wonder if he starts on Saturday.

Dejan Lovren (6): Some horrible work on the ball in the first half especially but did put in a good block late on to make up for it.

Joel Matip (6): He’s not Virgil, is he? Nothing stupid but nothing especially smart, you get the feeling the fact there’s a debate over whether he should play over Lovren tells you all you need to know about Van Dijk.

Alberto Moreno (10): With Andy Robertson putting in such good performances, I’d forgotten how much I’d missed the mad bastard. So entertaining to watch, as if you supplied a cheetah with multiple Class A drugs.

Milner the star in the middle

Jordan Henderson (6): Good enough for the occasion. One inventive ball in the first half nearly came off.

Emre Can (6): The same as Henderson, really. Kept the beard in touch for the weekend.

James Milner (7): Continued his mini-revival with another good performance, deserved an assist. Never stops running which is mad given his legs shouldn’t theoretically work anymore.

Poor Sadio

Sadio Mane (6): Five goals in three games in the build-up and the ones you really want to fall in still won’t. Lively enough on a night where he didn’t need to do too much, unlucky to hit the post.

Roberto Firmino (6): Seemed about an inch away from scoring a header every five minutes. Good to get him off early.

Adam Lallana (5): Should never play in a front three. It’s not his fault, but it is.


Danny Ings (5): Just won’t go in for him, the poor thing. Solanke-itus.

Mo Salah (6): Keen to remind everyone he’s boss, in case we’d forgotten.

Ragnar Klavan (5): I miss him. That smile.

  1. I’m sitting here smiling thinking what was Mr Klopp’s rating????? Let’s see the fact that he started or even played any of the front 3 is ridiculous!!! You have a 5-0 away goals lead and you have one of your biggest games of the season on Saturday and you play them risking injury either by an opponent and or pulling up????
    Mr Klopp acts like he has no brains at times. As if trying to prove his point is more important than the agenda of simply doing what is the obviously right tactical decision of protection of our players and giving the younger and or returning players game time and experience of European football games.
    He gets a 3 in my humble opinion just because of the stupidity of bringing on Sala!!!!!
