Liverpool entertained Chelsea at Anfield earlier today as they looked to bounce back with a win in the Premier League. The Reds made a poor start to the game and were held to a scoreless draw at half-time.

The Merseyside club were slightly better in the second 45 minutes but were lackluster in the final third. The contest finished with Jurgen Klopp’s men settling for a 0-0 draw in front of their home supporters.

Let’s find out how each Liverpool player fared during the match against Chelsea.

GK: Alisson Becker – 7.5/10

The Brazilian keeper made a couple of solid saves at the back and earned an important clean sheet at Anfield.

RB: James Milner – 6/10

He performed his defensive duties well and made one good run with the ball.

CB: Ibrahima Konate – 7.5/10

The French talent gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and was a bit sloppy with his passing.

CB: Joe Gomez – 7.5/10

Gomez defended his penalty box with conviction and was a good presence on the ball as well.
