Liverpool entertained Brentford at Anfield earlier today as they focused on collecting maximum points at home. The Reds made a dominant start to the contest but struggled to finish off their chances. However, they picked their game up and got their noses ahead in the 44th minute courtesy of Fabinho’s header from close range. Jurgen Klopp’s men went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain doubled Liverpool’s advantage in the 69th minute with a great header. Takumi Minamino came off the bench to score with a tidy finish which capped off an impressive 3-0 win for the Reds at home.

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

GK: Alisson Becker – 6.5/10

The Brazilian custodian had to make one routine save in the game and secured an easy clean sheet in front of the home supporters.

RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold – 8/10

The English right-back was solid at the back and played some sublime crosses during the game. He has got an assist to show for his efforts.

CB: Joel Matip – 8/10

He was strong in the air and made some important defensive contributions inside his half. Matip also made a few driving runs with the ball and was a threat from set-pieces.

CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 7/10

The Dutch centre-back controlled the game well from the back and earned a comfortable clean sheet at Anfield.

LB: Andrew Robertson – 8/10

Robertson made a couple of promising runs with the ball and set up a few clear-cut chances for his teammates to score. He ended the game with an assist to his name.

CM: Jordan Henderson – 7/10

The Liverpool captain retained possession with conviction in midfield and did his fair share of defending as well.

CM: Fabinho – 8.5/10

Fabinho won the ball back a couple of times and engineered several key chances for others around him. He got his name on the scoresheet with a good header from close range and just about deserves to be named the man of the match.

CM: Curtis Jones – 7.5/10

He made some dangerous runs with the ball and caused a few problems for the Brentford defenders. However, there was no goal for him today.

RW: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 7/10

The English attacker was a bit untidy with his link-up play but scored a good goal in the second half before leaving the field with an injury.

ST: Roberto Firmino – 7.5/10

The Brazilian striker worked hard and showed his unselfishness by setting up Minamino in the 77th minute.

LW: Diogo Jota – 7/10

Jota was a constant menace for the opposition defenders and was unfortunate to hit the post with his goal-bound attempt in the second half.

Substitutes:

RW: Takumi Minamino – 7/10

He celebrated his birthday in style by scoring with a neat finish.

CM: James Milner – 6/10

The veteran midfielder made one good chance in the Brentford half.

ST: Kaide Gordon – N/A

He got some valuable minutes under his belt.
