Here are our player ratings as Liverpool beat Burnley 3-0 at Turf Moor. The Reds took another great step forward in the Premier League’s top four race.
Liverpool player ratings vs Burnley
Alisson – 7
Didn’t have much to do but did everything well. No goals today.
Trent Alexander-Arnold – 7
His most quiet game for a while but a solid one.
Nat Phillips – 8
A clearance off the line and his first senior goal today. A big one for Liverpool and Phillips.
Rhys Williams – 6
Williams scores lower than Phillips purely by not finding the net. In truth, both struggled against Burnley’s style today.
Andy Robertson – 8
A magnificent cut back for the first goal. A constant outlet for Liverpool, too, in a very good performance.
Fabinho – 6
The Brazilian had a very poor first half, getting caught in possession a few times. Things looked better in the second, though.
Thiago – 7
A confident first-half but then a very quiet second. Very unfortunate not to get a goal.
Gini Wijnaldum – 7
Drove forward well enough, kept things simple – a classic Wijnaldum performance. Not exactly a lot to complain about here.
Mohamed Salah – 7
Not his day in front of goal but undoubtedly the biggest threat on the pitch. Created a couple of good chances, too.
Roberto Firmino – 8
Firmino was having a terrible first half, missing a good chance. Then he grabbed the opener with a fine finish. Much better second half, too.
Sadio Mane – 8
Much like Firmino, Mane wasn’t enjoying a good first half. A good link up with Robertson created the first, though, and then he picked out Phillips for the second. A game-changing performance in the end.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 8
Oof. What a goal that was. What we’d give for a full season of Oxlade-Chamberlain as an option next season.
James Milner – N/A
Kostas Tsimikas – N/A
