Liverpool entertained Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield earlier tonight as they hoped to secure a win at home. The Reds began the match well but struggled to find the cutting edge in the final third at they were held to a goalless scoreline at half-time.
Heung-min Son gave Spurs a shock lead in the 56th minute which was canceled out by Luis Diaz’s deflected goal just 18 minutes later. The home team pushed on in search of the winner but ran out of time as the match finished 1-1 with both sides sharing the points.
Let’s take a look at how each Liverpool player fared during the match against Spurs.
GK: Alisson Becker – 6.5/10
The Brazilian keeper made a couple of solid saves but couldn’t do much about Son’s finish from point-blank range.
RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold – 6.5/10
The English full-back kept a solid defensive shape at the back but failed to create too many clear-cut chances for his teammates in the final third.
CB: Ibrahima Konate – 6.5/10
Konate used his pace well to keep Harry Kane quiet. However, he will be disappointed after conceding a goal early in the second half.
CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 7/10
Van Dijk cleared the danger when needed and was a threat at the other end of the field.
LB: Andrew Robertson – 6.5/10
He was full of energy down the left flank but his crosses were subpar tonight.
CM: Jordan Henderson – 6/10
Henderson pressed the opposition well in the first half but struggled to unlock the Tottenham defence during his time on the field.
CM: Fabinho – 6.5/10
The Brazilian talent was not shy about making a tackle to make life difficult for the opposition at the centre of the park.
CM: Thiago Alcantara – 7/10

RW: Mohamed Salah – 6.5/10
Salah stretched the Tottenham defence quite effectively but failed to register a goal.
ST: Sadio Mane – 6/10
He dropped deep to link-up play with his teammates but didn’t get too many sniffs at goal.
LW: Luis Diaz – 7.5/10
The talented winger was the best player on the field at times during the match. He caused a lot of headaches for the Spurs defenders and scored the all-important equaliser for Liverpool with his deflected strike in the second half.
LB: Kostas Tsimikas – 7/10
He whipped in some inviting balls into the opponent’s penalty box.
ST: Diogo Jota – 6/10
Jota never looked like he would score.
CM: Naby Keita – N/A
He didn’t get enough minutes to warrant a rating.
