Jurgen Klopp finally won his first game as Liverpool boss in tonight’s League Cup clash with Bournemouth.
There were a number of promising performances in the 1-0 victory, and here’s how we’ve rated the players:
GK) Adam Bogdan – 7/10
A really solid no.2, is our Hungarian. Faultless between the sticks. Will hopefully start all League Cup games. He deserves it.
DR) Connor Randall – 5/10
We don’t want to patronise the debutant, but he’s not yet ready for the Liverpool first-team. Very nervous in possession and made Danny Pugh look like a top winger.
DL) Nathaniel Clyne – 7.5/10
Excellent down the left. Marauding runs, clever passes and the winning goal. Clyne gambled at the far post in the first half and finished well at the far post.
DC) Kolo Toure – 6/10 (Skrtel – 33′)
Done his hamstring early on. At least it wasn’t a striker, we suppose.
DC) Dejan Lovren – 6/10
A traditionally shaky start from the blunder merchant, but he grew into the game. Often passed backwards though instead of stepping into space.
