Liverpool 2-1 Genk - Player Ratings as Reds go top of Champions League group

It was not a vintage performance. It was far from a European night at Anfield that will be remembered for long. But, in the end, Liverpool got themselves a 2-1 win over Genk that put them top of Group E, and took a big step towards qualification for the Round of 16. Gini Wijnaldum's early goal was cancelled out by Mbwana Samatta's header just before half-time. But Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stepped up to score the winner, and become the Reds' joint …

Player ratings as Reds fall again in Naples

VAR. Going great, isn’t it? I honestly didn’t think we’d do particularly well tonight but I thought we’d at least have the VAR on our side after Saturday’s debacle.  Never mind. Chelsea on Saturday etc, we move on. Just one more thing before the ratings - Peter Walton is a big weirdo.  Adriannnnn, like Rocky! Adrian (8): That’s an amazing save, you know the one I mean. Genuinely, Roy of the Rovers stuff. Does his best with the penalty.  TAA …

A lovely, routine(ish) win for the Reds to start your weekend off. Slightly annoying that everyone's favourite FIFA 12 left-back decided to blam one in with his weak foot before we'd played 10 minutes, but at least it gave Steve Bruce something other than his evening Mixed Grill to be happy about. After that, Sadio does what he's done all year, Salah bags one too and Jurgen Klopp goes home a content man. Here's your ratings. Adrian keeps his cool …

Southampton 1-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds scrap to St. Mary's win

Given the circumstances, Liverpool came away from a potential banana-skin at St. Mary's with a superb three points, after beating Southampton 2-1, thanks to goals from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino. The Reds were dominated for large periods of the first half, but went into the break with Mané's stunning curler putting them in front. Firmino doubled the lead, before an Adrian howler sent the nerves jangling a little bit. But in the end, two and a half days after …

Liverpool 1-1 Manchester City - Observations as City nick Community Shield

It was the stereotypical game of two halves at Wembley Stadium, as Liverpool came out second best after a penalty shootout, that saw 9 out of 10 penalties hit the back of the net. Unfortunately, Gini Wijnaldum was the unlucky one, and the Reds had to be content with what you could possibly call a moral victory, but I'm sure Jurgen Klopp and the players would've rather had the silverware to show for it. City took the lead after questionable …

Player Ratings as Liverpool Lose Community Shield on Penalties

Liverpool concluded their pre-season preparations with a penalty shootout defeat to reigning Premier League champions Manchester City in the Community Shield. After a poor first-half performance, the Reds looked by far the better team in the second and probably deserved to come away with the “trophy”. Liverpool fans should be optimistic about the season ahead after this one with many players yet to hit full fitness and Sadio Mane still to return. Alisson: 6 Unlucky with the Sterling goal. Had …

Cardiff 0-2 Liverpool: Player ratings as Reds make it nine in a row

It may not have been the most enjoyable watch, but literally all that matters in the heat of this title battle is the end result. Jurgen Klopp's ever-patient, rarely-ruffled Reds continued their delightful habit of finding a way to win ahead of a potentially decisive Manchester derby on Wednesday. It was a set-piece that provided the opener against the resolute hosts shortly before the hour mark, with Georginio Wijnaldum lashing a bouncing ball beyond Neil Etheridge. Substitute James Milner then …

Player Ratings as Reds pull off massive 2-0 win over Chelsea

What a massive win! Liverpool were definitely the better side as they beat Chelsea 2-0 at Anfield. Sadio Mane opened the scoring, before Mohamed Salah thundered in a long-ranger at the Kop End to double the lead. The Reds had a few nervy moments after being two goals up, when Eden Hazard hit the post once, and forced a save off Alisson, but post that, there were no worries for the Reds. Here's how each player fared. Alisson Becker - …

Player ratings as Liverpool defeat Porto

A good midfield performance, no away goals conceded and one foot into the last four. Pretty much all Jurgen Klopp could have asked for as Liverpool defeated Porto 2-0 in their Champions League quarter final first leg. Naby Keita opened the scoring via aid of a deflection early on before Roberto Firmino tapped in a second. Sadio Mané would’ve had a third had he not strayed narrowly offside, but two will do. Here’s your ratings. A clean sheet not minus …

That was alright, wasn't it? Manchester City can take their dodgy penalty, 1-0 win. I'll have five fabulous goals served up by those beautiful men in red, keeping us top of the table and dreaming for a few more days at least. Everton at Goodison on Sunday will offer more of a challenge, however that is tomorrow's focus. Tonight, sleep easy thinking about that league table. Hat-trick for TAA Alisson Becker (7): Another clean sheet, is it? 3-0 up and he …
