Mane Gets 7.5, Alisson With 8| Liverpool Players Rated In Draw vs Brighton At Anfield

Must Read

The Reds came back to Anfield after 4 away games on the trott to secure all 3 points vs Brighton and keep up the pressure on league leaders Chelsea. Liverpool started brightly with Henderson scoring as early as 4 minutes into the game with a brilliant curl finish from the edge of the box. Liverpool soon went into a two goal lead when Sadio Mane headed in from close range from a brilliant cross by Alex Oxlade Chamberlain. Graham Potter’s men then responded strongly when Enock Mwepu scored in the 41st minute to keep the tie alive going into the 2nd half. Brighton came up strongly into the 2nd half when they easily bypassed Liverpool’s midfield and they were rewarded deservedly when Trossard finished off a brilliant move to make it 2-2.

Liverpool couldn’t take control of the game and sloppy defending meant that they lost 2 points at home to Brighton who deserved a point after their brilliant display.

Let’s look at how the Liverpool players performed during the match against Brighton.

GK: Alisson Becker- 8/10

Alisson kept Liverpool in the game for major parts as he made 4 crucial saves.

RB: Trent Alexander Arnold- 6.5/10

The English right-back created only one chance and made 2 interceptions but was way off his best colours.

CB: Ibrahim Konate- 7/10

The 22-year-old centre back won 6 duels and made 4 interceptions but wouldn’t be happy conceding 2 goals.

CB: Virgil Van Djik-6/10

Van Djik completed the most passes in the match with a 92% success rate but was sloppy in marking as his side conceded 2 goals.

LB: Andrew Robertson- 5.5/10

The Scot won’t be happy with his performance as he lost 3 duels and failed to create any chances for his teammates.

RCM: Naby Keita- 6.5/10

Keita looked lively for the first 20 minutes before he was subbed off with an injury.

CDM: Jordan Henderson- 6.5/10

The captain scored a belter in the 4th minute but was quiet since then as he lost crucial duels in the midfield and failed to get a grip on the game.

LCM: Curtis Jones- 5.5/10

The young English midfielder looked out of place as he lost 7 duels and got dispossessed a few times.

RW: Mohammed Salah- 6.5/10

The in-form Salah did set up Henderson for the first goal but was kept relatively quiet by the Brighton defenders.

LW: Sadio Mane- 7.5/10

Mane looked bright throughout the game as he created a couple of chances along with scoring Liverpool’s 2nd goal. He helped the team out defensively and successfully dribbled out from tough situations.

ST: Roberto Firmino- 5.5/10 

The Liverpool striker missed 2 big chances as it cost 2 big points to his team’s tally.

Substitutes-

RCM: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain- 6.5/10

The midfielder put on a decent performance and produced an assist for Liverpool’s 2nd goal.

ST: Diogo Jota- 6/10

The Portuguese hardly got any chance to affect the game as he came on very late in the 2nd half.

LCM: Takumi Minamino- 6/10

The Japanese came on for the final 3 minutes and hardly got a touch.
