Liverpool locked horns with Aston Villa at Villa Park earlier tonight hoping to close the gap to Everton at the top of the Premier League table. The Reds made a nightmare start to the game as they conceded two early goals to Ollie Watkins. However, Mohamed Salah got a goal back in the 33rd minute.

Soon after, John McGinn restored Villa’s two-goal lead before Watkins completed his hattrick in the 39th minute. The Merseyside club went into the half-time break 4-1 down with a mountain to climb in the second half.

Ross Barkley scored the home team’s fifth goal with a deflected attempt. But Salah struck back with a close-range finish at the hour mark. Jack Grealish scored two more goals to cap off a 7-2 win over the champions of England.

Let’s take a look at how each Liverpool player fared during the match against the Villans.

GK: Adrian – 0/10

The Spaniard made one good save in the game but committed a few comical errors on his way to shipping in seven goals tonight.

RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold – 2/10

The English right-back was non-existent in defence and failed to create anything meaningful going forward.

CB: Joe Gomez – 2/10

The English centre-back made a catalogue of errors at the back and was subbed after the half-time break.

CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 3/10

The Dutch defender was far from convincing and had a nightmare game at the back.

LB: Andrew Robertson – 5/10

The Scottish left-back worked hard but was nowhere near his usual levels.

CM: Naby Keita – 3/10

The Guinean midfield ace struggled to get into the game and didn’t track back to defend when losing possession in the opposition half.

CM: Fabinho – 3/10

The Brazilian midfielder lost the midfield battle and made some horrible mistakes when told to fill in at centre-back.

CM: Georginio Wijnaldum – 2/10

The Dutch midfielder struggled to retain possession in the first half and went missing in the second.

RW: Mohamed Salah – 7/10

The Egyptian winger scored two fine goals, but the rest of his teammates let him down at the back.

ST: Roberto Firmino – 2/10

The Brazilian striker gave away the ball cheaply far too many times and was lacklustre in the final third.

LW: Diogo Jota – 5/10

The Portuguese wide player began the contest brightly but lacked the killer instinct in the attacking third.

Substitutes:

ST: Takumi Minamino – 4/10

The Japanese international never looked like he had a goal in him.

CM: James Milner – 6/10

The English veteran showed some heart and grit in the face of adversity.

CM: Curtis Jones – 5/10

The youngster struggled to give his team any control in the game.
