Goalkeeper: Adrian – 4

The Spaniard made a huge error immediately after a strong save, despite some smart stops his mistake was just so poor.

Right back: Neco Williams – 6

The Welshman had a tough time but held his own. He wasn’t scared to get forward and was always in the right places.

Centre back: Joe Gomez – 5 

Someone needed to close Ross Barkley, we can’t let him score against us.

Centre back: Virgil van Dijk – 5

Big Virg had a very poor game, it’s not often that we see the Dutchman regularly beaten in the air but he was bested too often this evening.

Left back: Andy Robertson 6

Robbo can’t be faulted for his work rate and his crossing was on point, the forwards just weren’t at the races.

Defensive midfield: Fabinho – 4

The Brazilian just wasn’t good enough defensively, he should have thrown himself about more and been more aggressive in the tackle.

Centre midfield: Adam Lallana – 5.5

The Englishman played out of his skin but not enough came off.

Centre midfield: Curtis Jones – 6

The Scouser had some really bright moments, showing great control and an eagerness to get on the ball – the situation dictated his substitution.

Right wing: Takumi Minamino – 5

The January signing just wasn’t good enough but neither was Fabinho when he first arrived.

Left wing: Sadio Mane – 5

Sadio didn’t take his chances, he was far too hesitant when one on one in the first half.

Striker: Divock Origi – 5

Big Div was largely ineffective despite being given a big chance by the gaffer tonight.
