Liverpool tonight crashed out of the Champions League thanks to an archaic away goal rule. The Reds dominated the game but two sloppy goals conceded by Adrian gifted the game to the Madrid side. We go again Reds, injuries robbed us. Here are our Liverpool player ratings v Atletico Madrid:
Goalkeeper: Adrian – 3
A big error for the first Atletico goal let them in, he should have saved the first two goals.
Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold – 7
Trent put on yet another crossing masterclass and regularly got stuck in.
Centre back: Joe Gomez – 7
The Englishman was stoic at the back, despite some rolling around from Atletico.
Centre back: Virgil van Dijk – 7
Big Virg was two steps ahead as ever. A majestic defender without compare.
Left back: Andy Robertson – 7
Robbo did what Robbo does, he raided the left flank with regularity.
Centre midfield: Gini Wijnaldum – 8.5
Gini Wijnaldum is my best mate. My very best mate.
Centre midfield: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 8
The Ox tries things and sometimes they come off, his cross certainly did for Gini.
Defensive midfield: Jordan Henderson – 8
The skipper kept the tempo up, he kept the lads motivated and determined.
Right wing: Mo Salah – 8.5
Mo was bright, dangerous and always in the right position.
Left wing: Sadio Mane – 7
Sadio had a few poor touches but always remained a threat thanks to his work rate and selfless running.
Striker: Bobby Firmino – 9
Bobby was everywhere in the final third, as you’d expect and he scored a big goal.
