Player ratings as Liverpool upset Ancelotti again

Player ratings as Liverpool upset Ancelotti again

Carlo Ancelotti's rivalry with Liverpool would make a bloody good film, wouldn't it? Istanbul, Athens, his La Decima winning Madrid team at Anfield in 2013, and now Anfield for Liverpool 1-0 Napoli in 2018. A hair raising night, made a brilliant one by a man with the most beautiful head of hair, Alisson Becker. The Reds are through, ensuring I haven't got to think of excuses as to why I can't do Europa League ratings in the Spring. Here we …
Liverpool Player Ratings as Salah sizzles Bournemouth

Liverpool Player Ratings as Salah sizzles Bournemouth

Mohamed Salah reminds the Premier League exactly what he's all about and the Reds are top of the Premier League, for a few hours at least. Not a bad way to start the weekend. Bournemouth aren't a bad side and the 4-0 scoreline doesn't really reflect the gulf between the two teams, but Liverpool were, and are, better. Salah's three goals combined with own goal of the season from Steve Cook keeps the unbeaten run going. Over to you, Manchester …

Player Ratings As Much Changed Liverpool Fight Back In Style

Jurgen Klopp made an array of changes for Liverpool's midweek trip to Burnley, with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino all out of the starting eleven while Divock Origi was rewarded for his last-gasp winner against Everton at the weekend. Cork's opening goal for the home side put the Reds on the back foot, from which it looked incredibly hard to fight back and earn three points to keep up pressure on Manchester City. However, a mixture of sheer …

Player ratings as Liverpool are punished in Paris

Player ratings as Liverpool are punished in Paris

Pretty much the whole lot of them can fuck off tonight, including the manager. You'll see that from the ratings. Liverpool lose in Paris and now we need to beat Napoli, more than likely by two goals, at Anfield on Matchday 6. It's do-able, but do you fancy keeping the likes of Mertens and Insigne quiet on the counter? I don't, is all. Anyway... Alisson clearly Liverpool's MOTM Alisson (8): Really good. Can do nothing about either goal, unlucky with …
Liverpool Player Ratings As They Fly Past Fulham

Liverpool Player Ratings As They Fly Past Fulham

Bar a blistering performance that led to taking Fulham apart 9-0, that was pretty much what Liverpool needed. Much more coherent than midweek, three points and a clean sheet. Mohamed Salah's breakaway goal set the Reds on their way, Xherdan Shaqiri's second-half strike completing a 2-0 win over the Cottagers. Here are your ratings. Alisson throws his cap on it... Alisson (10): What a man. Comes into the Premier League with that magnificent beard, completely owns the yellow goalie kit and …
Player ratings as Liverpool are bruised in Belgrade

Player ratings as Liverpool are bruised in Belgrade

That was embarrassing, wasn't it? Like, really embarrassing. Red Star 2-0 Liverpool and the sad thing was you knew it was over at 2-0. Couldn't tell you why really. The team has fight, they've displayed that already this season. There's quality going forward, they've proved that this season. But you knew. An off night, or a result that was coming? I'm throwing 3's and 4's out either way. Here are your ratings. Alisson does his best Pickford impression Alisson (5): How …
Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool: Player Ratings as Reds share the spoils with Gunners

Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool: Player Ratings as Reds share the spoils with Gunners

Phew. That was a game and a half, and in the end, probably a fair result too. Arsenal dominated Liverpool territorially and in terms of possession, but the Reds had much the better chances through the game. In the end, the 1-1 result seemed fair, on the whole balance of play though. James Milner put the Reds in the lead before Alexandre Lacazette equalised for Arsenal. Here's how each player fared. ALISSON BECKER - 5/10 He was immensely lucky on …
Player Ratings as Liverpool fly past Red Star

Player Ratings as Liverpool fly past Red Star

That was alright, eh? Weeks of meh and then a night of madness. Goals flying in all over Europe and at the end of it Liverpool have got four of them to Red Star's none, they top the group and both PSG and Napoli are left abit disappointed with the result of their battle in France. Win in Serbia and Liverpool can probably escape the group with draws in the last two. Less of that though, more of the wins …
Player ratings as Liverpool limp past Huddersfield

Player ratings as Liverpool limp past Huddersfield

Mohamed Salah's first half strike didn't stop it being a Saturday to forget, but did ensure Liverpool claimed all three points in Yorkshire. Without a win this season, Huddersfield came determined to spring an upset and will feel they deserved at least a point as they often worried a Liverpool side devoid of organisation and rhythm. Jonathan Hogg struck the woodwork with a 25-yard rocket shortly after Salah had scored to go closest for Huddersfield, who were shut out by …
