Liverpool 3-2 Milan: Player ratings as Reds wrestle back three points

Liverpool 3-2 Milan: Player ratings as Reds wrestle back three points

When Liverpool win their opening Champions League group game 3-2 at Anfield, it tends to be good omen. This was a game that got the juices flowing in a similar vein to that victory over Paris Saint-Germain three years ago, except this time the scoreline gave it the illusion of a contest. Thanks to a Jordan Henderson winner that will universally be called Steven Gerrard-esque, Liverpool can bask in what was, on the whole, a supremely dominant display. Here's how …
Liverpool Tame Wolves To Get Back To Winning Ways In The League

Liverpool Tame Wolves To Get Back To Winning Ways In The League

Liverpool's top-four prospects were given a shot in the arm after a 1-0 win away to Wolves. Returning to his former club, Diogo Jota scored the game's solitary goal and gave the Reds what was -- on the overall balance -- a deserved win. The visitors started the game in a shaky fashion and this was typified by Alisson. Coming to claim a routine cross from Adama Traore, the Brazilian made unconvincing contact and the ball spilled into the path …

Player Ratings for Liverpool 3-1 West Ham

January may have been a rough month to start for Liverpool, but a couple matches in the capital at the end of the month have firmly put the Reds back on track and in title contention again. Alisson – 7 The handsome Brazilian wasn’t asked to do much today with Antonio surprisingly ineffective and Soucek subdued, but he came off his line well several times to snuff out danger and make sure the Hammers didn’t find any joy in the …
Liverpool 0-0 Manchester United: Player ratings as Reds draw blank against arch-rivals

Liverpool 0-0 Manchester United: Player ratings as Reds draw blank against arch-rivals

This was an occasion for Liverpool to banish their rut. Instead, they've sunk further into it. The draw with arch-rivals United keeps the Reds three points off the pace, but above all it cements Manchester City's newly-established status as title favourites. Belief among supporters and among the players is clearly low. Liverpool aren't functioning as a unit given their makeshift defence and with every match the task of retaining their title is growing more difficult. Joel Matip's imminent return will …
Newcastle 0-0 Liverpool: Player ratings as missed chances cost Reds

Newcastle 0-0 Liverpool: Player ratings as missed chances cost Reds

Liverpool's title success was built on 'finding a way to win', but their title defence has been hamstrung by their repeated failure to do so. It wasn't a vintage performance but it should have been enough to take the three points. The Reds have been left two reflect on the two glorious opportunities they squandered. Here is how they rated. Alisson Becker - 7/10 No qualms about the 'keeper's performance whatsoever. Distributed the ball tidily and sprung into action to …
Crystal Palace 0-7 Liverpool: Player Ratings as Reds run riot at Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace 0-7 Liverpool: Player Ratings as Reds run riot at Selhurst Park

Liverpool delivered a magnificent statement performance at Selhurst Park, as they beat Crystal Palace 7-0, to go six points clear, at least temporarily, at the top of the Premier League. Takumi Minamino opened the scoring in the 3rd minute with his first league goal for the club, on the one-year anniversary of the day the Reds signed him. Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino added two more before the break, as the Reds delivered a lesson in being clinical, against a …
Fulham 1-1 Liverpool: Player ratings as Reds stutter on the road again

Fulham 1-1 Liverpool: Player ratings as Reds stutter on the road again

Tottenham Hotspur's stumble at Crystal Palace means Liverpool stay joint-top ahead of Wednesday's Anfield clash, but they can't expect to stay at the summit for long unless they rediscover their consistency. They have won only one game away from home this season and have developed a remarkable habit of following-up world-class performances with unrecognisable displays. After Arsenal there was Aston Villa, after Leicester... Brighton, and after Wolves... Fulham. It somehow took 40 minutes for the Reds to pose any sort …
Liverpool 4-0 Wolves: Player Ratings from commanding Reds win as fans return to Anfield

Liverpool 4-0 Wolves: Player Ratings from commanding Reds win as fans return to Anfield

Liverpool beat Wolves 4-0 in the Premier League, as fans made their return to Anfield, for the first time in nine months. The 2000 that were inside the Reds' fortress saw a dominant display. The Reds got some help for the first goal, as Conor Coady miscontrolled a long ball from Jordan Henderson, for Mohamed Salah to pounce and belt a finish past Rui Patricio. Henderson got himself an assist for the second Liverpool goal on the night, after he …
Brighton 1-1 Liverpool - Player Ratings as late penalty pegs Reds back

Brighton 1-1 Liverpool - Player Ratings as late penalty pegs Reds back

Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium on Saturday afternoon, after more VAR drama, that saw the Reds have two goals disallowed, and Brighton given a penalty in stoppage time, which Pascal Gross scored to equalise. Liverpool took the lead in the second half through Diogo Jota after the Portuguese was set up by Mohamed Salah. The Reds had two goals denied by VAR, as Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane both …
Ajax 0-1 Liverpool: Player ratings as Reds battle to three Group D points

Ajax 0-1 Liverpool: Player ratings as Reds battle to three Group D points

Liverpool ended their run of three games without a win by doggedly beating Ajax. Nicolas Tagliafico's clumsy own-goal was ultimately the difference, though Davy Klaassen hit the post and Liverpool spurned opportunities of their own in the closing stages. Here's how the Reds rated in Amsterdam... Adrian - 7 It was far from a confident start - the mix-up with Gomez and the flashbacks to the howler at Southampton - and the finish was nervy as well, a flapped punch …
