Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side continued their rampage at the top of the Premier League table, thanks to a nail-biting 1-0 victory against Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur. The Reds opened the scoring in the first half through Brazilian star Roberto Firmino. Despite all of Spurs’ attacking tendencies in the second half, Jose’s men weren’t able to find a way past Allison at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on the night.
Here are the Liverpool players rated in their win over Tottenham Hotspur.
Allison Becker – 7.5
The Brazilian had an excellent game between the sticks for Jurgen Klopp’s men. Although he wasn’t overly troubled, the goalie made a flurry of key saves towards the end of the fixture.
Trent Alexander-Arnold – 6.5
The Englishman wasn’t at his best in an attacking sense and probably should’ve delivered more quality into the box as well. Defended strongly and worked extra hard tracking back.
Joe Gomez – 6.5
The youngster put up a good display at the heart of defence tonight and did well to keep Lucas Moura at bay for most of the tie. Picked up an unfortunate yellow card though.
Virgil Van Dijk – 6.5
For all the pressure that Spurs tried to apply in the latter stages of the game, the Dutchman had a reasonably comfortable outing and wasn’t pressured too much at any point.
Andy Robertson – 7
The full-back worked extremely hard tracking back and was forced to do a lot of work against the dangerous South Korean Heung-Min Son. Delivered a couple of decent balls into the box.
Jordan Henderson – 6.5
The English veteran put himself about quite effectively on the night and showed great courage going in with his head on the run-up to the Liverpool opener in the first half.
Georginio Wijnaldum – 7
The Dutchman was a constant bundle of energy in the middle of the park, and although he wasn’t able to have the usual attacking impact, his work-rate on the night was otherworldly.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 6
The former Arsenal man wasn’t able to impact the tie quite as much as he would’ve liked, but almost opened the scoring in the opening minutes. Made a couple of excellent runs into space.
Mohamed Salah – 6.5
The Egyptian tried to work the space in and around the Spurs defence but wasn’t able to have an impact. Did well to involve himself in the situation that led to the Firmino goal.
Roberto Firmino – 7.5
Scored the first-half that would prove to be the winner against Tottenham. Worked hard on the ball, and looked like a genuine threat every time he got the ball in the Spurs box.
Sadio Mane – 7
The Senegalese sensation couldn’t influence the tie quite as much as he would’ve liked, especially considering that the Reds finished the game with more than 60% possession.
Adam Lallana – 6.5
The Englishman took a couple of neat touches in midfield and eased the pressure in the latter stages as Spurs pushed for an equaliser.
Divock Origi – NA
Didn’t have time to make an impact.
Xherdan Shaqiri – NA
Didn’t have time to make an impact.
