Well. How about that then? The Reds were cruising at 2-0 but were undoubtedly complacent, allowing the hosts to claw the game back to 2-2 and force a replay. Here are our Liverpool player ratings v Shrewsbury Town:
Goalkeeper: Adrian – 8
The Spaniard pulled off a spectacular save in the first half, he’s a safe pair of hands to backup Alisson.
Right back: Neco Williams – 8
The Welshman just gets better and better, his delivery was tremendous throughout.
Centre back: Joel Matip – 6
The Cameroonian defender looked rusty but was solid nonetheless.
Centre back: Dejan Lovren – 5.5
The Croatian was beaten far too easily for the second Shrewsbury goal.
Left back: Yasser Larouci – 6
Larouci looked comfortable and was unlucky to concede a penalty with the foul looking to have been outside the box.
Defensive midfield: Fabinho – 7.5
The Brazilian got in some vital match practice and put in some of his trademark leggy slide tackles.
Centre midfield: Curtis Jones – 9
The Scouser has a swagger about him, another game and another goal for the wonderkid.
Centre midfield: Pedro Chirivella – 8
The Spaniard pulled off a peach of an assist for Curtis Jones, we need to keep him around.
Right wing: Harvey Elliott – 7.5
16-year-old Elliott never looks out of depth and that is utterly remarkable.
Striker: Takumi Minamino – 6
The January signing needs to learn the Liverpool way – he is clearly still getting up to speed with things.
Left wing: Divock Origi – 6
Sir Divock went missing for the most part, he’s allowed off days in matches like this.
