The Player Ratings: Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal

Alisson Becker - 7.5 Mistakes will come now and again, but the world's best stopper showed a commanding presence in a routine display. Trent Alexander Arnold - 9.5 Sensational.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain really found his groove as a midfielder for Liverpool during the 2017/18 campaign. He was a whirlwind in the middle third and he seemed to thrive in the chaos created by Jurgen Klopp’s ultra-aggressive system.  If you think back to the games against Manchester City, he was the wildcard. Pep Guardiola loves to control everything on the pitch. They couldn’t deal with someone in the middle third who could accelerate and carry the ball the way that Oxlade-Chamberlain …

How To Deploy The Ox

How To Deploy The Ox
