Benfica 1 - 3 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Benfica 1 - 3 Liverpool - The Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 7.5 A relative spectator in the first half, with only a couple of minor chances created. Was a lot busier after the break, as the home sides ramped up their efforts. Could do nothing for the goal conceded, and was assured as Liverpool weathered the storm. Trent Alexander-Arnold 7.5 Looked confident from the off, with a willingness to show strength at both ends of the field. 34 minutes …
Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Joel Matip Virgil, Fabinho and Alisson all could have won this, which showed the utter strength through the defensive middle. In a game where Martinelli was so dangerous, Matip was able to offer great coverage when they broke. Was dominating aerially throughout, assured in possession, and carried the ball forward with his usual threat. A great season, and a brilliant partner for Virgil. When moments arose, he was able to stay resolute and helps make this team so hard to …
Observations: The Reds, like a boulder rolling down a hill.

Observations: The Reds, like a boulder rolling down a hill.

Against Arsenal, Liverpool had one of their slowest first halves of the season. It seemed like the Gunners had a real foothold in the game, and although they didn't create much, neither did Liverpool. But we will not be stopped. No matter what you throw at these boys, they'll plant their feet, grit their teeth, and walk on. It was another superb line-up today, as we are slowly getting used to having week in and week out. Even the sight …

Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 8.5 A pretty routine first half for the giant Brazilian, with possession of the ball more apparent than anything else. Made a great stop early in the second half as the game opened up. Didn’t have much to do after that, but his moments were once again critical. Trent Alexander Arnold - 7.0 Martinelli certainly gave him worrying moments in the first half, with his smart movement. A …

Brighton 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 8.0 A nice solid, and uneventful game for Ali. A great stop towards the end showed his supreme ability to stay focused. Got clattered, but still was great with the ball at his feet and commanded his area. Had a busy last few moments, and the collision probably made him even more determined to keep that clean sheet. Trent Alexander Arnold - 7.5 Starting to become bullish and dominant in his defensive work, and clearly, there’s a …

Liverpool 2 - 1 Norwich - The FA Cup 5th Round Player Ratings

Liverpool v Norwich - The FA Cup 5th Round Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 7.5 Back in nets, with some game time needed before the weekend. Had very little to do through the first half, other than an early and late flurry by Norwich. Wasn’t at fault for the goal, and produced a great save late on. His vocal leadership was needed. James Milner - 7.0 The vice captain, now confirmed as the back up right back, came back in. …
Liverpool 3-1 Norwich City - Player Ratings as Reds come from behind to win

Liverpool 3-1 Norwich City - Player Ratings as Reds come from behind to win

It wasn't the stroll many thought that it would be, but Liverpool continued their winning ways, with a 3-1 victory over Norwich City. After a goalless first half, Milot Rashica's shot deflected cruelly off Joel Matip to give the visitors the lead. Jurgen Klopp had to respond, and he did with a double change introducing Thiago and Divock Origi, who were both impressive as Sadio Mane and Mo Salah scored to turn the game around, before Luis Diaz scored his …
Burnley 0-1 Liverpool: Player ratings from a stereotypical Turf Moor triumph

Burnley 0-1 Liverpool: Player ratings from a stereotypical Turf Moor triumph

Torrential rain, galeforce wind - the conditions and the arena almost demanded an ugly win, and that's what Liverpool provided. Fabinho Nazario bundled in from a corner shortly before half-time and it proved to be the winner, securing three points that keep the Reds' title hopes alive. Burnley may be bottom of the Premier League but coming into this game, they'd only suffered eight defeats - as many as fourth-place West Ham - and conceded 29 goals, fewer than Manchester …
Analysis: Liverpool Have Restored Hope, But Questions Remain

Analysis: Liverpool Have Restored Hope, But Questions Remain

The Premier League title race has been widely declared 'over' on two occasions already this season. First, there was City's comeback win against Arsenal, the epitome of 'mark of champions', and then there was their victory at home to reigning kings of Europe Chelsea a fortnight later. 'If they don't drop points here,' we thought, 'when will they?' Indeed, Pep Guardiola's side had already gotten the toughest away trips out of the way, and they were enjoying one of those …

Liverpool 4 - 0 Southampton - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 8.0 Some important stops allowed Liverpool to avoid any issues. The most important goalkeeper in Liverpool’s Premier League era, and irreplaceable in this side. Trent Alexander Arnold - 8.0 So impressive in his game. The elegance and natural ability he has is unmatched by any other attacking fullback. Another assist for this sensational talent, and we could be about to see him become consistently world class Andy Robertson - 9.0 There were signs against Porto (as a …
