Everton managed to come away with a point against an in-form Liverpool side that were scoring goals for fun. Having to defend for almost three-fourths of the game, they came from a goal down to snatch a point thanks to a Rooney penalty. Sam Allardyce would consider his team lucky after seeing his team dominated by the men in red but Klopp’s emotions would be contrasting to that of his counterpart. The blue half of Merseyside would be relieved to see their side bag a point at Anfield, a result that many did not expect. Here are the player ratings of Everton.
Everton Players Rated And Slated
Jordan Pickford (6):
Did not have an awful lot of saves to make but was left uncertain on a number of occasions by his defenders. Could do nothing about Salah’s finish.
Jonjoe Kenny (6):
Had a tough afternoon dealing with the pace of Liverpool’s front-line. A decent performance.
Mason Holgate (6):
Was the better centre back for Everton as he did his bit to defend. Lacked composure when under pressure.
Ashley Williams (5):
Worked his socks off but was nowhere near close to being comfortable in his defending as the Liverpool attack troubled his with their pace and movement.
Cuco Martina (4):
Was bullied by Salah for Liverpool’s first. Should have been much stronger and authoritative.
Idrissa Gueye (6.5):
A machine for Everton. Was chasing lost causes and made some crunch interceptions but was untidy on the ball. Spent most of his time trying to catch the Liverpool forwards running past him.
Tom Davies (3):
A disappointing afternoon for the youngster getting booked in the first half and was rightly removed during the break for Lennon.
Wayne Rooney (7):
The only Everton player who looked positive in terms of having an attacking mindset. His confident penalty earned Everton a point.
Gylfi Sigurdsson (6):
Had little to no outlet to showcase his attacking qualities. Much of his evening was spent defending and tracking the Liverpool runners.
Oumar Niasse (5):
A dry game for th forward as he hardly had any opportunity in the attacking half. Was taken off at half time by Allardyce.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin (6.5)
The youngster was a willing runner pressing the Liverpool defenders. His persistence earned Everton the penalty and eventually the point.
Aaron Lennon (6):
Was brought on for Tom Davies and did his best to use his pace to push Everton higher up the field.
Morgan Schneiderlin (6):
His introduction was an attempt to stabilise the Everton side that were being outrun by the men in red.
Phil Jagielka (NA):
