Liverpool player ratings v Everton

Robbed is an understatement. To think that Liverpool will walk away from this match without all three points in-tact is nothing shy of a disgrace.

Make no mistake, Liverpool were fantastic and this was the perfect response to the Villa defeat.

Where do we start, Everton’s best player shouldn’t have been on the pitch and don’t get us started on that late offside call. We have a lot to get through here. Here are the RTK player ratings as Liverpool are somehow held by Everton.

Adrian – 6

Cut a nervous and agitated figure but did the basics well enough. Could have done better for the first goal

Trent Alexander-Arnold – 6 

Too much danger came down the right channel and Digne was granted far too much space which proved costly with the second goal.

Joel Matip – 7

Very impressive from start-to-finish. On the ball outstanding and dominant in the air. Must maintain his place in the team.

Raphinha, Coutinho and Tielemans: The signings Liverpool could make this summer

Virgil van Dijk – N/A

Was forced off inside 10 minutes following a disgraceful tackle from Jordan Pickford. The Everton goalkeeper was more than lucky not to see red in a challenge that was borderline assault.

Andy Robertson – 7

Wreaked havoc on the left-side from start-to-finish. Assisted Mane’s opener.

Fabinho – 7

Imperious in the holding role thwarting numerous Everton counter-attacks. Faultless out of possession and utilised the ball well when in it.

Thiago – 9

Just a joy to watch. The game just bends to his will effortless. More touches and passes than any other player on the pitch. Comfortably man-of-the-match.

Henderson – 9

Our irreplaceable skipper has slowly become our most important player. He covered every blade of grass and epitomised everything brilliant about Liverpool.

Sadio Mane – 8

A total menace and Liverpool’s most dangerous outlet going forward. Took his goal with aplomb and could have had more.

Mohamed Salah – 7

Non-existent for most of the game and then took his goal in emphatic fashion. World class.

Roberto Firmino – 7

A much better performance from Bobby who was constantly hounding the ball back for his team and using himself as the building blocks for attacks. Quiet in the second half but good to see our No.9 back to his best.


Joe Gomez – 6

Struggled to deal with the aerial threat of Calvert-Lewin at times, but otherwise was fine.
