Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

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.

A Timely Reboot

A Timely Reboot

Liverpool finally lost a game at Anfield this week, with their second leg tie against Inter ending in defeat. In a period where Jürgen Klopp has had no choice but to rotate his stellar cast of performers, it was inevitable that a slight bump in the road would occur.

A good effort on 28 mins went just wide, as he started to grow into the game. …

Liverpool 2 - 0 Leicester - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.5 Back after international duty, and a good stop early on from Maddison. Was fairly routine after that till the break. Rarely called into action in the second break, but was in command throughout. Trent Alexander Arnold - 7.5 A little loose with a pass early on presented a chance for Maddison, but recovered to sting the keepers hand with a smart left footed shot. A nice corner to find Virgil created the first goal, as frustration …
