Player Ratings: Liverpool Brush Aside Bournemouth

Player Ratings: Liverpool Brush Aside Bournemouth

If you are one of the many Reds worried about the midweek match against Red Bull Salzburg you couldn’t have hoped for a better result than this. Liverpool have seen tougher opposition on the training pitch than this Bournemouth side who were flattered by the 0-3 scoreline. Firmino, Salah and Henderson returned to an eleven masterfully rotated by Jurgen Klopp to deal with December’s congested calendar. Remember Clean Sheets? Alisson (7): Good to have the Brazilian back in net and racking …
Liverpool 2-1 Brighton: Player Ratings as Reds go 11 points clear

Liverpool 2-1 Brighton: Player Ratings as Reds go 11 points clear

Someone needs to go tell these Liverpool players that it is possible to win games by a scoreline other than 2-1. It was, though, another massive win in the Premier League for the Reds, as Brighton were seen off at Anfield, thanks to Virgil van Dijk's first-half brace. Alisson Becker's red card and Lewis Dunk's goal made it a nervy final few minutes. Here's how each player fared Alisson Becker - 4/10 He made a couple of decent saves but …

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds eke out yet another late win

Liverpool kept their lead at the top of the Premier League intact, with a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Sadio Mane opened the scoring for the Reds, only to be pegged back late by Wilfried Zaha. But the response from Jurgen Klopp's men was immediate with a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner causing pandemonium in the Palace box, for Roberto Firmino to tap in. Here's how each player fared. Alisson Becker - 6/10 No real big saves to make, …

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 …
