Adrian – 8

Calm and collected throughout. Made a number of impressive stops and was one of Liverpool’s busier players in the second half.

Neco Williams – 7

Linked well down the right channel with Harvey Elliott and defensively was solid.

Rhys Williams – 8

An outstanding debut from the 19-year-old. Dealt with everything that was thrown at him and utilised the ball extremely well. His long-range pass to Origi that led to the fourth goal was inch-perfect.

Van Dijk – 7

Imperious as ever. Had very little to do in a totally dominant first-half display. Subbed at the break.

My Revenge On Ben Foster

Tsimkas – 8

Another impressive debut from the Greek left-back. Was a driving force in the first-half, constantly bombing down the left channel. His range of crosses were exceptional.

Grujic – 8

Started as Liverpool’s deep-lying midfielder and utilised the ball exceptionally well. His first start for the club in three years and the Serb capped it off with a goal.

Elliott – 7 

Another menacing presence up top and was unfortunate not to get on the scoresheet after seeing a smart effort thwarted in the first half. Subbed.

Jones – 9 

Liverpool’s outstanding player. A total menace from start-to-finish. Jones was utterly dazzling and was well worth his two stunners which tickled the net in almost identical places following a brace of the highest order.

Shaqiri – 7

Set the tone with his piledriver of a free-kick inside the opening 10 minutes. Welcome back Shaq.

Minamino – 8

Minamino was another outstanding performer and looks a player transformed with a new-found confidence. His opening goal that was curled into the top-corner was arguably the pick of the bunch.

Origi – 7

Was Liverpool’s quietest performer on the night. Origi was a peripheral figure in the first half but was much brighter in the second. Took his goal extremely well.
