Liverpool Player Ratings From Hawthorns Holiday

Liverpool Player Ratings From Hawthorns Holiday

Liverpool refused to get out of second gear as they shared the points with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

With AS Roma and the Champions League firmly on their minds, the Reds threw away a two-goal lead to the pretty much-relegated side, but when there’s little to play for and the referee is giving free-kicks against you when your player is punched, who’s fussed?

Hereeeeeee’s your ratings.

Nice to see you, Albie

Loris Karius (6): Was quite meh on the goalkeeping front (should do better positionally with their equaliser) but the absolute audacity to simply chest down Nyom’s ridiculous 70-yard effort would get him a statue if I had such power.

Joe Gomez (6): Given he’s been out for a few weeks I thought he came back quite well for the most part, used the ball wisely and gave little up at the back. Poor towards the end, mind. It’s a testament to the form of Trent Arnold that Liverpool haven’t been trying to rush Gomez back for Roma.

Virgil Van Dijk (7): Looked better than everyone around him, as per.

Ragnar Klavan (5): Took him less than two minutes to bust out one of his little turns that will be doing the rounds on Twitter by the time you read this. Might help people forget a poor defensive display.

Alberto Moreno (6): Nice to see him. Got to feel for Albie. Starts the season really well against all the odds, nails down his spot, only to get injured and see his replacement kick the left-back position up a notch all whilst his best mate is sold. Regarding today, he wasn’t great but didn’t do anything terrible. Silly booking.

Midfield malaise

Jordan Henderson (5): One really nice pass to Milner early on but failed to get any sort of control on the game for the most part as Liverpool lost the midfield battle.

Georginio Wijnaldum (5): One of those away days from him today. Kept the ball nicely when he had it but the game seemed to pass him by when he didn’t.

James Milner (6): Actually thought he looked a little rusty after sitting out last week’s game but was still Liverpool’s best midfielder (until Oxlade-Chamberlain was subbed on).

Salah scores again but it’s Ings’ we’ll remember

Mo Salah (6): Seems to have these games sometimes, rarely I admit, where he doesn’t do much but then plucks out a lovely finish and you assume he’s been playing the same way all afternoon. Closer to the record.

Sadio Mané (7): Back to his free-flowing best, unfortunately just as the season’s coming to a close. Great passing, dribbling and skills. That little flick for the opener, suave as you like.

Danny Ings (6): Lovely finish for his goal but he’ll be kicking himself that he didn’t get two. Punched by Hegazi which naturally led to a free-kick going West Brom’s way.

    Very disappointed with the draw . Klopp and Liverpool fans should be worried that the team is not playing its naturally free flowing football but rather instead are concentrating on giving Mo chances to score . If they don’t revert back to their natural game it could cost us dearly against Roma and also 4th place in the table . Yes we all want Salah to finish top and break records , but not at the expense of the bigger picture . Stop the focus on Salah and start playing for eachother again !

    I won’t blame both Klopp nor our Players for the result. I blame the Damn Referee, the referee should be investigated. From my personal observations LFC has lost Four good matches due to the referee’s FAULT. It’s a shame that FA always happy to see LFC not achieving any thing. But they can’t keep a good spirited TEAM DOWN.

    Watched this game and keep wondering what does Henderson bring to this or any team. A 5 must be a nice way of saying hurry up Naby!!!! I don’t get why Liverpool didn’t make Milner captain. He offers so much more than Henderson any day. On to Gomez such a good player but a total dream boat at times. Totally zones out. Alberto damn man just learn to defend goal side even the youth teams teach goal side !!!!!
