Liverpool player ratings

Alisson Becker – 7

Didn’t face much difficulty in this game. Especially after the visiting team was reduced to 10 people, there was almost no need to play defense again.

Virgil van Dijk – 7

Had some problems early in the game dealing with the ball in the air. But after that I started to catch the rhythm. Waited to clean up and stack up at the last moment, helping the team many times.

Ibrahima Konate – 6

Today he seemed to have problems with his tackles. After receiving a yellow card early on, he had several scary game-breaking moments until he finally had to be substituted early in the second half.

Trent Alexander Arnold – 7

Still acts as an inverted full-back. Waiting to release the ball in the middle But today there was still not much ability to drop the ball into dangerous areas. There were some long shots outside the box.

Kostas Tsimikas – 6,

always has a chance to add to the game. But today there was not much opportunity to create the game and was substituted.

Alexis Mac Allister – 6

drives the ball in midfield and plays out from the back. Serves to connect the ball to connect the game during the time when the team folds the field to invade due to having more players.

Ryan Gravenburch – 6

offensive roles Keep creating the game behind the striker. But today there isn’t much opportunity to make beautiful games.

Dominik Szoboszlai – 6

today had the opportunity to get the ball in the second row often, but the distance shots were not as good as they should have been.

Luis Diaz – 7

creates chaos on the left side well. Used his speed to attack Ashley Young until he received a red card and created an advantage for the team. You can also call penalties for the team.

Diogo Jota – 6

has some opportunities to go with the ball. But today I haven’t had a chance to make many games, and the chances of finishing are not as clear as they should be.

Mohamed Salah – 8

The first period was quiet. There isn’t much opportunity, there isn’t space to play. Until he became the one to take the penalty kick for the team, plus scored the second goal from a counter attack at the end of the game.


Harvey Elliott (in place of Gravenburch, 62nd) – 7

came to use freshness to chase down in the second half. There was an opportunity to try and look far to save Pickford.

Darwin Nuñez (replacing Tsimikas, 62) – 7

used his speed to penetrate the visiting team’s defence, got 1 assist in injury time from paying for Salah to shoot clear.

Joel Matip (in place of Konate, 67) – 7

came to act in place of Konate, who had a yellow card. Protects the visiting team’s counter-attack game well. There was no mistake in the timing of the attack.

Joe Gomez (in place of Diaz, 81) – 6

came to stand on the left side to close the score at the end of the game.
