Liverpool waltzed to victory over Leeds United this afternoon. The Reds were in fine fettle as they put their hosts to the sword. Strong performances throughout put Jürgen Klopp’s side joint top of the table on points. Unfortunately, the game was marred by a horror injury for Harvey Elliott. Here are our Liverpool player ratings v Leeds United:
Alisson Becker – 9
What you can say? He wasn’t called upon often but he was solid when we was and he was excellent as ever on the ball.
Trent Alexander-Arnold – 9
The Scouser in our team with another assist, like clockwork. He is just too good.
Virgil van Dijk – 9
He doesn’t even break a sweat. Just cool, calm and collected throughout.
Joel Matip – 9
The Reds’ most memed player begs for a midfield one-two every game. He got one this time out and it led to a goal.
Andy Robertson – 7.5
The Scotland captain was found wanting on the back foot at times but he wasn’t punished.
Fabinho – 9
The Lighthouse commanded the midfield and got a goal for his troubles.
Harvey Elliott – 10
Utterly heartbroken. Just no other words. Get better soon, Harv.
Thiago – 9
We said pre-match that Thiago will run the show. Thiago ran the show.
Mo Salah – 9
The Egyptian King was in excellent form. He didn’t give his marker a rest all game.
Sadio Mane – 9
Persistence. Pays. Off.
Diogo Jota – 7
The Portugal forward was unlucky not to score, a strong performance.
