Liverpool cruised to victory against Burnley today. Despite Sean Dyche’s archaic, defensive, time wasting tactics the hosts still grabbed the three points with goals from Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane. Here are our Liverpool player ratings v Burnley:
Alisson Becker – 9
The Brazilian kept another clean sheet and was impressively composed on the ball. That save at the very end, wow.
Trent Alexander-Arnold – 9
The Scouser in our team pulled out some excellent passes today and he looked assured in defence. His second half assist was delicious.
Virgil van Dijk – 9
The Dutchman’s influence was outstanding today, the kind of defending we missed so sorely last term.
Joel Matip – 9
The Reds’ most memed player put in another solid display in defence. Can’t fault him.
Kostas Tsimikas – 8.5
Tsimi was excellent today, his assist was a joy to behold. We no longer have to run Robbo into the ground.
Jordan Henderson – 8.5
The skipper did what he does best: he won it back and used it well, he marshalled the team to a deserved victory.
Harvey Elliott – 9
The youngster was outstanding. To take his first Premier League start in the manner he did is so impressive. His chalked off assist was a beaut. He gets a nine because of how well he played considering his youth and inexperience. Well done, Harv.
Naby Keita – 8.5
Naby had a much better game this week, the Guinean may well come good this year, he deserved the massive applause he got when he came off.
Mo Salah – 8.5
The Egyptian King was dangerous as ever today, it’s a shame about that offside in the first half because it was a wonderful goal.
Sadio Mane – 9
Sadio deserved a goal last week and he got one this week, a brilliantly taken effort.
Diogo Jota – 8.5
The Portugal forward scores and scores and scored. He could do serious numbers this term.
