Luton 1-1 Liverpool: Premier League Match Day 11 Player Ratings
Match day eleven saw Liverpool travel to Bedfordshire for a challenging visit to Kenilworth Road, where Premier League newcomers Luton Town stood ready.
⭐ Alisson Becker – 7.0
After a restful midweek, Becker was primed for aerial challenges. Despite conceding a goal, his late-game heroics were crucial in salvaging a draw.
Trent Alexander-Arnold – 5.0
His progressive play from the back was overshadowed by overconfidence, resulting in a subpar performance.
Joe Gomez – 5.0
As a left-back, Gomez’s defensive and aerial prowess seemed unsettled in his new role, indicating ongoing adjustments.
Ibrahima Konaté – 6.0
Although confirmed as a first-choice defender, his decision-making in this match was erratic.
⭐ Virgil van Dijk – 7.0
The captain’s aerial dominance and authoritative play were standout features in Liverpool’s defence.
Dominik Szoboszlai – 5.0
A disappointing game for Szoboszlai, who struggled to make his mark in a tightly contested match.
Alexis Mac Allister – 4.0
Mac Allister’s performance was notably poor, with his strengths stifled by the game’s dynamics.
Ryan Gravenberch – 6.0
Gravenberch had fleeting moments of brilliance but needs to assert himself more consistently in the game.
Diogo Jota – 5.0
Jota’s impact was limited, struggling to find his place in the team’s strategy.
Darwin Núñez – 5.0
Núñez’s missed opportunities were frustrating, yet his potential remains evident for future matches.
Mohamed Salah – 5.0
Salah was unusually quiet, failing to ignite the offense in a crucial game.
Substitutes’ Impact and Ratings
- Harvey Elliott – 7.0 – Brought energy and intensity after coming on.
- Cody Gakpo – 6.0 – A welcome return to Premier League action.
- Kostas Tsimikas – 5.0 – Improved the team’s width after substitution.
- ⭐ Luis Díaz – 7.0 – His entrance helped Liverpool salvage a point.
Jürgen Klopp – 6.0
Klopp’s rotation aimed to maintain team freshness. His substitutions were strategic, but the team struggled to capitalise on scoring opportunities.
Jurgen Klopp said last week to get to the next level Liverpool have to be able to break teams down who play a low block. Today has been an example of Liverpool failing at that task.
