Liverpool Player Ratings
Alisson Becker - 7/10
Alisson made a big save to deny Sterling in the first half. In the second half, his command of the box, and his sweeping up were important for Liverpool, as they didn't really manage to control the game.
Trent Alexander-Arnold - 6/10
Alexander-Arnold nearly played Firmino through in the opening exchanges when the Brazilian should have scored. He didn't finish the game, though, with what looked like a calf injury.
Joel Matip - 6/10
In his first start for three weeks, Matip defended really well for the most part. His passing, though, was awful and hindered Liverpool's attempts to build any momentum.
Joe Gomez - 7/10
Gomez was unlucky to concede a penalty in the first half, which he could realistically have done nothing to avert. But otherwise, he didn't put a foot wrong with his defending throughout the game.
Andy Robertson - 7/10
Robertson was once again a machine down the Liverpool left. He put in a mammoth shift, and made some critical interceptions and tackles throughout the game.
Jordan Henderson - 6/10
Starting in a two-man midfield, Henderson did well enough to not allow Liverpool to get dominated in the middle of the park.
Georginio Wijnaldum - 7/10
Wijnaldum had a couple of moments where he gave the ball away needlessly. But tactically, he was spot on with his work in midfield. He was mostly strong in possession, and recovered well when Liverpool lost the ball.
Roberto Firmino - 3/10
Firmino is in a spell of rotten form where nothing is going right for him. His touches were questionable, his decision-making poor, and just generally, he had no positive influence on the game.
Diogo Jota - 5/10
After scoring in four consecutive games for Liverpool, Jota had a much quieter game. He had two presentable shooting opportunities, but he scuffed his shot both times.
Mohamed Salah - 7/10
Salah once again put away his penalty with aplomb. He would have loved to have get more involved in the game though, but was well-marshalled by Laporte.
Sadio Mane - 6/10
Mane's decision-making in the final third let him down. He had a few opportunities to shoot, but he decided to pass instead. He won the penalty off Walker, with a clever piece of play.
Xherdan Shaqiri - 5/10
Shaqiri came on to replace Firmino, but couldn't really set up his fellow attackers for any presentable chances.
James Milner - 6/10
Milner replaced Alexander-Arnold midway through the second half, and stuck to his task defensively against Sterling and Cancelo.
