Liverpool 2 - 0 Rangers - CL Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.0 The weekends man of the (reds) match. He was made to deal with some tricky back-passes early on, but did enough to make sure he wasn’t caught out. Had a busier spell late on, but was determined to keep them at bay. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 8.0 Kept his place despite some poor form, and rewarded his manager with a brilliant early strike. It was a wonderful free kick, and you could see the confidence flow as …

Liverpool FC 3 - 3 Brighton - Player Ratings

Starters: Alisson - 8 Week after week we rely on him, and he does his job. Trossard’s finishing becomes his problem, but for conceding three in a home match, you can’t ask for much more from the Brazilian keeper. Trent - 5 Let's Trossard turn him for the opener, which matches the tone of the season thus far as the world-class right-back continues to be questioned in defensive situations. Looked more positive in attack, and maybe should've been through on …
Trent Alexander Arnold - A World Class Footballer

Trent Alexander Arnold - A World Class Footballer

I read this morning how Trent Alexander-Arnold has been omitted from the England squad for the Germany game. I was neither surprised nor worried by the fact, as a mediocre manager (Gareth Southgate) has clearly settled on other options. Kyle Walker, Reece James & Kieran Tripper are all ahead of Trent in the Three Lions pecking order, and it would be fair to assume that he will not be included in Englands forthcoming World Cup squad. I grew up in …

Liverpool FC 9 - 0 Bournemouth - The Player Ratings

The Starters: Alisson Becker – 7 Well positioned to clear or gather any slightly overhit long ball, which came in useful once or twice. Didn't have much to do, but did it well. Trent Alexander-Arnold – 8 What a strike! Trent looks like he's got something back after an underwhelming start to the season, but today he looked ready to win, and comfortably. Not every pass comes off as envisioned, but he gets enough of the hard ones right, putting …

Manchester United 2 - 1 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Manchester United 2 - 1 Liverpool - The Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 5.0 Had an early scare, with the post coming to his aid. Could do little for the opening goal as United pulled the Reds backline apart. A great fingertip stop from Eriksen’s free kick stopped the home side doubling their lead. The second goal was a great strike, and though it would be harsh to judge him on the goals, he seemed hesitant and not his usual …

Player Ratings for Liverpool 0-0 Chelsea (LFC win 6-5 on penalties)

For the third time under Jurgen Klopp, the Reds outlasted the detestable Chelsea FC in a penalty shootout to lift a trophy into the night sky. While Liverpool once again could not get a win in either regulation or extra time against the Blues, new heroes stepped up to complete the set for Herr Klopp. Alisson – 8 Shook off a knock in the first half after a clash with Marcos Alonso to put in a composed and vital display. …

Aston Villa 1 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.0 A frenetic start saw Liverpool go behind, and Ali could probably have done little more to stop it. Nearly gifted an open goal, with an amazing pass into Watkins early on. Had little else to do in the second half as the Reds controlled, but was alert to stop Ings late on. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 7.0 Showed good defensive awareness, as Villa looked to exploit the wide areas. His dangerous delivery started to explore the Villa …
Observations: Hard Work for The Reds against solid Spurs.

Observations: Hard Work for The Reds against solid Spurs.

Let's address the issue on everyone's minds first. With only 1 point gained against Tottenham, Liverpool are now 3 points behind Manchester City if they won their game in hand. This means Jurgen Klopp and his boys now need City to lose a game rather than just draw. This makes it less likely, but it still can turn on a single result. Fingers crossed then. With that covered, onto the game itself. The most striking thing from this game was …

Liverpool 1 - 1 Tottenham - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.5 The monster keeper started in this clinical game, with his brilliance most required. A couple of good early stops saw him start brightly. Could do nothing for the opening goal, as the away side calved open the reds backline. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 7.0 Back into the league line up after a rest against Newcastle. He had an early sighter that flew over, and a few good deliveries in a possession heavy opening period. Was called to …

Liverpool 2 - 0 Villarreal - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.5 The monster keeper was a certain starter, but he was a virtual spectator through the first half. Concentration (and whether to grab a snack from the crowd) was all he had to do, before a poor Villarreal corner on 73 minutes. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 9.0 After a tricky derby, he was tasked with showing more composure. He seemed keen to show strength in defense from the off, and he really started to purr as the half …
