Embed from Getty Images Trent Alexander-Arnold – 5.5 Wasn’t helped by those around him. A learning experience for the 18-year-old who was subbed at half-time. One great cross showed his potential. Dejan Lovren – 4 Gifted a chance to Arnautovic and was stranded for numerous other Stoke chances, including their goal. Joel Matip – 6 continue reading

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool Selection Headache - Who to Pick v Chelsea?

After the fantastic win against reigning league Champions Leicester City last weekend, Liverpool face the tough assignment this Friday when they take on Antonio Conte’s Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Embed from Getty Images We have all seen how dangerous Liverpool can be in attack. Creating chances, scoring goals, playing football with real freedom as they did last Sunday. Friday will be a real challenge to that, though. Chelsea are disciplined in defence and have been playing with two strong defensive minded midfielders in N’Golo Kante and Nemantja Matic. They are notoriously difficult to break down. Jurgen Klopp has a few decisions to continue reading

Arsenal 0, Liverpool 0 - LFC Player Ratings & Tactics

Arsenal 0, Liverpool o Emirates Stadium, London (60,080) Player Ratings Simon Mignolet – 7.5 Quiet in the first half, but kept his side in the game in the second with saves from Aaron Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, and one excellent stop from a close-range Giroud shot. It was a game where both ‘keepers needed to make outstanding saves, and Mignolet was up there with Cech. Nathaniel Clyne – 7 Another assured performance from Liverpool’s new right back. Was occasionally caught between a Skrtel and a hard place, but played his part in the clean sheet. Martin Skrtel – 6.5 Played Aaron Ramsey onside for an continue reading

Hull City 1, Liverpool 0 - LFC Player Ratings & Tactics

Hull City 1, Liverpool 0 KC Stadium, Hull (24,843) Aston Villa scorer: Dawson 37′ Simon Mignolet – 6.5 Well positioned to save from N’Doye early on, and made two good saves later in the half. Could be seen grinning after clearing out a couple of players as he came to punch a cross. Man of The Match for this reason. Emre Can – 6 Martin Skrtel – 5.5 Dejan Lovren – 6 Glen Johnson – 5.5 Made an excellent foray forward right at the end of the first half, but his dangerous cross into the box couldn’t be pounced upon by any continue reading

Real Madrid 1, Liverpool 0 - LFC Player Ratings & Tactics

Real Madrid 1, Liverpool 0 Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, Madrid (79,283) Real Madrid scorers: Benzema (27′) Amidst accusations that this was some sort of “weak” XI, the Liveprool team which took to the field showed more more fight than the one which faced Real back at Anfield. A solid structure, proper defensive leadership from Kolo Touré, and a midfield who at least attempted to protect the back four. A striker who ran and ran up front, a midfielder who covered more of the pitch than the groundsman, and a goalkeeper who seemed to be revelling in the onslaught he faced. Liverpool may continue reading

Liverpool Tactics & Player Ratings - Everton 3, Liverpool 3

Everton 3, Liverpool 3 Goodison Park, Liverpool (Att: 39,576) Liverpool scorers: Coutinho (5), Suárez (19), Sturridge (89) Player Ratings *Simon Mignolet – 8 Kept Liverpool in the game on numerous occasions with some great saves in one-on-one situations. Would have liked a more solid defence in front of him to help out. Glen Johnson – 5.5 Showed flashes of what he can do when at his best but looked off his game, in the second half especially. Seemed to lose concentration when building attacks, but made the odd good foray into the final third. Martin Skrtel – 5.5 Like Johnson, Skrtel continue reading

Still looks unsure under crosses and high balls into the box. 2. Glen Johnson – 6.5 A solid enough performance from the right back, still needs to improve his end product going forward if he’s to get back to his best. 4. Kolo Touré – 7.5 Handled Benteke better than Skrtel did last season, and organises the defence well. Covered well and only lost one headed duel. 5. Daniel Agger continue reading
