Centre back: Virgil van Dijk – 8

Our number four was impeccable as ever, pulling out a last ditch tackle to stop Dominic Solanke.

Centre back: Joe Gomez – 6.5

JoGo was solid when called upon but was sloppy in possession at times.

Left back: Andy Robertson – 7

Robbo was flying up and down the wing without any trouble.

Defensive midfield: Jordan Henderson – 7

Our skipper pulled out a tremendous assist for The Ox’s goal.

Defensive midfield: James Milner – 7

Industrious and reliable as ever.

Attacking midfield: Naby Keita – 9

Naby came back into the side with a bang, his goal was a just reward for his positive football. His second half assist for Mo Salah was delectable. He thoroughly deserves A 9 in our Liverpool player ratings v Bournemouth.

Left wing: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 8

Yet another goal for The Ox, he was bright throughout.

Right wing: Mo Salah – 9

The Egyptian King was bright and creative, his back heel for Naby Keita was just *chef’s kiss*. The second half saw Mo grab his first away goal in the league this season.

Striker: Bobby Firmino – 6

The Brazilian was often missing throughout the game and missed some good opportunities for through balls.
