Player ratings as Liverpool rattle Pep's cage once again

An absolute thunderbolt from Fabinho combined with headers  from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané secured a 3-1 win for Liverpool against title rivals Manchester City on Sunday, moving the Reds nine points ahead of the Citizens and eight clear at the top of the Premier League. It was a match with no shortage of drama, nor a shortage of quality, Jurgen Klopp's men racing into a 3-0 lead and holding off the resistance City had to offer, bar what turned …

Player Ratings as the Mentality Monsters do it again

Fuckin' hell, what a team. Another one pulled out of our arses, at the death, as it looked like everything was going against us. As far as I'm concerned, Martin Atkinson is the worst referee in the world and Klopp needs to start getting into the media's ear, Fergie style, regarding him. Firmino should have a goal, we should probably have a penalty, it didn't need to be that hard. Fair play to Kloppo, ballsy as anything to take Salah …

Player ratings as Liverpool sink Spurs

Mohamed Salah's swashbuckling spot-kick secured Liverpool's victory against Tottenham on Sunday, the Reds emerging as 2-1 victors despite going behind less than a minute thanks to Harry Kane's acute header. Some enthralling football looked as if it would go unrewarded with Paulo Gazzaniga making a string of fine saves in the Spurs goal, before skipper Jordan Henderson broke the resistance early in the second-half. Serge Aurier clipped Mane for a penalty with around 15 minutes to go, awarding Salah the …

Player ratings as the Reds banish their away demons

A first Champions League group stage away win in over two years (hello, Maribor) and Liverpool are assured of Champions League qualification if they can win their remaining two home matches, whilst they'll top the group if they could follow that up by beating Salzburg away. Two sublime goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain followed up by Mané and Salah netting made it four-nil to Jurgen Klopp's side tonight, before hosts Genk hit back with an avoidable late consolation (hello, Lovren). Here …
Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool - Player Ratings as below-par Reds sneak Old Trafford draw

Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool - Player Ratings as below-par Reds sneak Old Trafford draw

Well, that was horrendous. Liverpool should not have let this Manchester United side get away as easily as they did at Old Trafford tonight. The Reds went down in the first half to a contentious Marcus Rashford goal, but Adam Lallana's late equaliser spared the blushes, as Jurgen Klopp's men remained the only unbeaten side in the Premier League this season. Right from the get-go, the Reds were lethargic, as shoddy passing and lazy movements defined the play in the …
Liverpool 4-3 RB Salzburg - Player Ratings as Austrians give Reds a huge scare

Liverpool 4-3 RB Salzburg - Player Ratings as Austrians give Reds a huge scare

The European Champions have their title defence up and running again. Liverpool bounced back from their 2-0 defeat in Naples, with a 4-3 win over RB Salzburg at Anfield in what was a crazy game typified by an energetic Salzburg side who attacked with verve, and an uncharacteristically sloppy Liverpool side. Goals from Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and Mo Salah put the Reds in command in the first half, but in 22 minutes either side of half-time, Salzburg came storming …

Player ratings as Liverpool see the Blades fall on their 'keeper's sword'

We're going to have to start playing a little better if we want to win the league, but seven wins from seven and I'm happy. After four away games I'm excited to get back to Anfield on Wednesday for the Champions League, however first there are some player ratings to attend to. Imperious Virg Adrian (7): Makes a couple of really good saves that would normally push him up to an eight. Unfortunately, his kicking let him down with a few …

Player Ratings as Liverpool win a League Cup match!

Winning in the Milk/Carling/Carabao Cup, I'd honestly forgotten what it felt like. It's okay. That was great fun though, in honesty. Watching Liverpool go past MK Dons by two goals to nil as a handful of talents make their debuts isn't a bad way to spend a Wednesday evening, with James Milner also getting his yearly non-penalty goal to put a smile on faces of Ribena drinkers everywhere. Here are your ratings. Big saves from a young Irishman Caoimhin Kelleher …

Player Ratings as Liverpool best Chelsea at the Bridge

Six in a row, 15 in a row, five points clear and all the jazz that comes with it. 'Lucky Liverpool' were at it again, the whole winning thing, at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. First-half goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino giving the Reds enough room to hold off a Chelsea fightback in the second-half, N'Golo Kante's superb strike proving a consolation. Trying to distract myself from *that* Eden Hazard banner, here's your ratings... Adrian proves his worth once …

Player ratings as Reds fall again in Naples

VAR. Going great, isn’t it? I honestly didn’t think we’d do particularly well tonight but I thought we’d at least have the VAR on our side after Saturday’s debacle.  Never mind. Chelsea on Saturday etc, we move on. Just one more thing before the ratings - Peter Walton is a big weirdo.  Adriannnnn, like Rocky! Adrian (8): That’s an amazing save, you know the one I mean. Genuinely, Roy of the Rovers stuff. Does his best with the penalty.  TAA …
