Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Player ratings as Reds lift their game to secure three points

Liverpool's hopes of ending the season with a 100% Premier League record at Anfield are still alive after they sparked themselves into life against Aston Villa. It was a lethargic, disjointed display for over an hour, but the slickest move of the match brought a breakthrough for Sadio Mane before Curtis Jones' first league goal confirmed defeat for Villa. Here's how the Reds rated: Alisson - 8 As ever, Alisson made a number of hazardous efforts that came his way …
Drunk, sober or hungover? How Liverpool rated in the 4-0 loss to Manchester City!

Drunk, sober or hungover? How Liverpool rated in the 4-0 loss to Manchester City!

Hahaha, you wouldn't actually believe how pleased I was when that stoppage time Riyad Mahrez goal was ruled out by VAR. I don't know about you, reader, but 5-0 looks so much worse than 4-0. You're halfway to ten goals at 5-0 up! Anyway, here's my first ratings piece since Liverpool were declared champions. In classic Liverpool style, we lost 4-0 to our closest competitors. I don't really want to write 600 words on why Andy Robertson deserves a 2/10 …

Now that's the Liverpool we know playing the football we love! Four-nil against Crystal Palace to send Hodgson back down the motorway scurrying. Three more points, leaving Liverpool two from the title and just a game away potentially, should Manchester City fail to beat Chelsea on Thursday night. Here's your ratings from Liverpool 4-0 Crystal Palace. Alexander-Arnold the standout defender Alisson (6): Very difficult to give him much more given Palace didn't have a touch in Liverpool's box. Seriously, the only …
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, …

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

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 …
