Here are our Liverpool player ratings as the Reds beat Arsenal 3-0. Liverpool were magnificent at the Emirates.
Alisson – 7
It’s a token score, really – he didn’t have anything to do.
Trent Alexander-Arnold – 9
Created virtually every good chance in the game, including Jota’s opener. You know, he might just be good enough for an England breakthrough.

Nat Phillips – 7
The midfield press did its job and limited the pressure on the centre-backs. But both Phillips and Kabak answered all questions of them.
Ozan Kabak – 8
We think he played a little better than Phillips, particularly with the ball. Really starting to come into his own.
Andy Robertson – 6
Not quite at his most creative best but kept pushing. Like most, his pressing was outstanding.
Fabinho – 9
Liverpool are infinitely better with the Brazilian in midfield. Another fantastic display.
Thiago – 8
We’re starting to see his best. Played well both in a midfield three and a two when Klopp switched things.
James Milner – 8
Should have scored in the first half, certainly. But Milner performed as both a midfielder and a left-back – a great showing.
Mohamed Salah – 8
Was having a pretty poor game until his brilliant goal. Should have grabbed a second, certainly, but a very good display in the end.
Roberto Firmino – 9
What a display this was. Firmino back to his best. He was pressing wonderfully, keeping the ball, and leaving Arsenal lost with his movement.
Sadio Mane – 7
Played okay but his forward partners outperformed him. If he finds form anytime soon, Liverpool will look frightening.
Diogo Jota – 8
Instant impact and, surely, in contention to start against Real Madrid. We can’t quite believe how good he is.
Gini Wijnaldum – N/A
Rhys Williams – N/A
All in all, this was the best Liverpool beating Arsenal 3-0 was the performance of the season so far and we reflected that with our ratings. They finally look like a world-class team again, even with all the injuries.
Things are finally coming together.
