Liverpool could’ve gone top of the Premier League with a win this afternoon yet they once again fired blanks. The Reds just couldn’t get it to go in in a frustrating Anfield affair. Had Joel Matip played it may have been a different story. Here are our Liverpool player ratings v Man United:
Alisson Becker – 10
A big game player who had a big game. Ali pulled out saves when he was needed.
Trent Alexander-Arnold – 7
Trent had a frustrating game, some unreal passes and some wasteful ones. He isn’t at his best but his best is just so hard to live up to.
Fabinho – 9.5
You cannot fault him, what a defender. A natural defender. Just unreal.
Jordan Henderson – 9
Slotting in at the back he didn’t look out of place. My captain my captain.
Andy Robertson – 8
Robbo didn’t manage to bag an assist but it wasn’t for the want of trying. He’s a little off the pace going forward at the minute but he doesn’t stop running.
Thiago – 9
A magician and a maestro. A dominant midfielder, he makes football look easy at times.
Gini Wijnaldum – 7
We’ll miss Gini when he’s gone, his industry in the middle makes all the difference in tight games.
Xherdan Shaqiri – 8
Shaq was clever and inventive with the ball. Hopefully he can stay fit for a spell.
Mo Salah – 6
A touch too many every time, Mo is off the boil at the minute but he’ll get back to his best soon.
Sadio Mane – 7
Robbed of a goal just before halftime. He never stops trying though and that’s always appreciated.
Roberto Firmino – 6
A generous six for Bobby. He missed too many chances and indicated we really could do with an out and out nine.
