What a game!
The two best sides in the country put on a brilliant show at Anfield today, with Liverpool winning 4-3 after a dominant performance.
Here’s how we rated the Reds:
Karius – 5
Should have done better for the first goal. Can’t get beaten on the near post there.
Gomez – 6
Also at fault for first goal, but was up against one of the best players in the league, Leroy Sane.
Robertson – 9
Puts absolutely everything into every performance. Has made the left-back spot his own.
Matip – 8
Strong performance from the Cameroonian, up against the best attack in the league (bar ours).
Lovren – 6
Should have done better for Gundogan’s goal, but held on at the end.
Can – 7
Started superbly, and didn’t look for one minute like a player who’s going to leave on a free transfer.
Wijnaldum – 8
So dynamic and made plenty of interceptions – one of his best performances in Red.
Oxlade-Chamberlain – 8
A brilliant first goal which characterised his best traits; power, direct running and speed.
Mane – 8
Another left foot rocket from Sadio! The fact he’s developing a habit of picking out the top corner with his wrong foot is brilliant.
Salah – 8
Not as involved as he usually is, but when his moment came, Salah struck, bagging from 40 yards when Ederson was out of his goal.
Firmino – 9
An exceptional goal capped a fantastic all-round performance. That’s 17 goals for the season for Bobby.
