Adrian: 6 - I don’t trust him at all and just the way he moves and dives looks all wrong, but thankfully he didn’t have much to do. He was better in the second half and swept up well on one occasion and dealt with a corner reasonably well.
Trent: 9 - Tremendous performance. His passing was ridiculous. Didn’t have too much to do defensively but he was fine when called into action.
Phillips: 6.5 - I like Phillips but I thought he struggled at times. Got turned a couple of times and it wasn’t his best day.
Kabak: 7 - Shows his naivety at times but made some good recoveries. I like him but I feel he has mistakes in him. He’s a young defender though, so it’s normal. Hopefully he can build on this clean sheet.
Roberson: 7.5 - He attacked well today. He hasn’t been as involved in our attacks over the past few weeks but today he was more involved and did well overall.
Gini: 8 - I thought he did a good job as the holding mid. His running with the ball is very good and he doesn’t do it enough. Solid game.
Jones: 8 - Well taken goal and some really nice touches. He looked good from the first minute.
Thiago: 7 - Not his most influential performance but he was fine. Was generally good on the ball save for one under hit pass when turning, and although he gave away a couple of free kicks, they were good ones to give away.
Salah: 7.5 - Good energy and some good link up play at times. Was unlucky not to score.
Firmino: 7.5 - Played well in general but should have done better with his two chances. Good work for the own goal. Hopefully this gives him a bit more confidence.
Mane: 7.5 - He was a menace. He’s been a bit quiet recently but he looked good today. General play was solid and he did some good work in his own half.
Klopp: 8 - Team selection was no surprise as he didn’t have many options but the performance was much better. He had the correct approaches We started well and I always felt we’d be able to get the goal and win. Our intensity was better and we actually created some good chances today and could have scored more than we did.
Looking at the poll for MOTM, 6.5 for Phillips probably won’t be too popular. I just didn’t think he had his best game, but of course it’s going to be difficult playing with a young defender and playing in front of Adrian. Maybe 6.5 is harsh but it’s my opinion. I was eating during the game so maybe I missed some of his better moments.
