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.

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 …

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 …

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 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Match Report The first half was a game of frustration for both sides, with neither giving much away through the opening period. Both Joel Matip and Virgil Van Dijk could have scored from tremendous Trent deliveries, and Alisson was alert enough to parry away a good cross come shot from Hakan Çalhanoğlu. These great teams appeared intent on cancelling each other out, which of course suited the reds far more. The second half …
