A frustrating opening day for the Champions saw the Reds go ahead three times at Anfield, only to surrender the lead three times. It was certainly a performance of a side still getting back into their rhythm but the Reds finally got there in the end, running out 4-3 winners. Here are our Liverpool player ratings v Leeds United:

Alisson Becker – 6

The Brazilian couldn’t have done much about the goals, however, conceding three is never a great start to the season.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – 5

The Scouser in our team didn’t have his finest game but having not had a full pre-season we can forgive him.

Joe Gomez – 5

The Englishman was often caught out of position and out of the line, not a day to remember for JoGo.

Virgil van Dijk – 6

Virgil van Dijk made an uncharacteristic error in the first half but atoned with a goal, no questions at this time please.

Andy Robertson – 6

Andy Robbo had a solid enough game.

Jordan Henderson – 5.5

 

The skipper played, that’s about as much as we can say.

Gini Wijnaldum – 6

Tenacious, determined, dogged. It was a typical Gini Wijnaldum display in the middle.

Naby Keita – 6

The Guinean midfielder didn’t do enough, he’ll still have a top season though.

Mo Salah – 18

A hattrick for the Egyptian King in a game which he dominated, always looking alive.

Sadio Mane – 6.5

Sadio was, as ever, always trying things. Not enough came off.

Bobby Firmino – 5

Bobby Firmino, like Sadio, was, as ever, always trying things. Not enough came off. He missed a sitter towards the end.
