Liverpool entertained Manchester United at Anfield earlier this evening hoping to earn a win and move back to the top of the Premier League table. The Reds were the more dominant team in the first 45 minutes but were toothless in the final third.
The Red Devils soaked in all the pressure in the second half but squandered a couple of excellent chances to net the winner. The contest ended with both sides playing out a boring 0-0 draw at Merseyside.
Let’s take a look at how each Liverpool player performed during the contest versus the Red Devils.
GK: Alisson Becker – 8/10
The Brazilian keeper came to his team’s rescue time and time again in the second half and managed to secure a well-deserved clean sheet in the process.
RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold – 6/10
The young full-back gave away the ball needlessly at times and struggled to create too many chances for his teammates in the opposition half. He looks far from his best but deserves a little credit for being solid in defence.
CB: Fabinho – 7/10
Fabinho kept a good defensive shape at the back and made some important interceptions for his team. He did enough to restrict Man United from finding the back of the net during the 90 minutes.
CB: Jordan Henderson – 8/10
The Liverpool captain was played as a makeshift centre-back, and he stood up to the test by producing an impressive performance at the heart of Jurgen Klopp’s defence. He bossed the game from the back, but it was still not enough for his team to earn the victory.
LB: Andrew Robertson – 7/10
The Scottish full-back looked bright and lively in the first half but wasted a couple of half-chances to hit the target. He also delivered some dangerous crosses into the opponent’s penalty box but ran out of gas towards the end of the game.
CM: Xherdan Shaqiri – 6/10
The Swiss international kept the ball moving well in the first half but struggled to get a foothold in the game in the second 45 minutes.
CM: Thiago Alcantara – 8/10
The Spaniard was a class above everyone else in midfield and played some lovely passes throughout the 90 minutes. He also carved open the Man United defence quite a few times but were let down by his teammates as they were woeful in front of the Man United goal.
CM: Georginio Wijnaldum – 6/10
Wijnaldum kept himself busy and did well to keep possession under pressure. However, he was too safe with his passes and lacked creativity in the opposition half.
RW: Mohamed Salah – 5/10
The Egyptian winger ran a lot but didn’t do much else in the game. He was also guilty of missing some decent chances inside the Man United penalty area.
ST: Roberto Firmino – 6/10
The Brazilian striker dropped deep to link up play but did not have his shooting boots on in front of the Man United goal. He will be disappointed for not scoring today.
LW: Sadio Mane – 6.5/10
Mane was always willing to make some penetrative runs in behind the Man United backline but never looked like he had a goal in him.
CM: Curtis Jones – 6/10
He kept possession ticking in midfield.
ST: Divock Origi – N/A
The Belgian striker hardly had any time to make an impact.
CM: James Milner – N/A
Milner didn’t get enough minutes to warrant a rating.
