Liverpool locked horns with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier tonight as they looked to secure a win away from home in the Premier League. The Reds made a slow start to the game but managed to get to the half-time break with a 0-0 scoreline.

The Merseyside side failed to make the decisive breakthrough in the second half and could only come away with a scoreless draw from West London.

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

GK: Alisson Becker – 7.5/10

The Brazilian keeper made a few decent saves at the back and did enough to secure a clean sheet on the road.

RB: Joe Gomez – 7/10

He didn’t put a foot wrong in the game when defending inside his half and was a threat going forward.

CB: Ibrahima Konate – 7.5/10

The French centre-back did his fair share of defending and was good on the ball as well.

CB: Joel Matip – 7/10

He tried his best to keep things solid at the back and was a strong presence in the air.

LB: Kostas Tsimikas – 6.5/10

He struggled to get a foothold in the game but made two key chances from the left flank.

CM: Curtis Jones – 6/10

Jones struggled to dictate the tempo of the game and produced an underwhelming display at the centre of the park.

CM: Fabinho – 6.5/10

He anchored the midfield well at times but didn’t do much with the ball at his feet.

CM: Jordan Henderson – 6/10

The Liverpool captain hardly offered any protection for his teammates at the back and was lackluster in the Chelsea half.

RW: Diogo Jota – 6.5/10

Jota made a few promising runs with the ball but never looked like he would score.

ST: Roberto Firmino – 6/10

He was not shy of getting on the ball but couldn’t do much with it in the final third.

LW: Darwin Nunez – 6.5/10

Nunez caused a few headaches for the Chelsea defenders but didn’t do enough to register a goal.

Substitutes:

RW: Mohamed Salah – 6/10

The Egypt international struggled to get into the flow of the game.

LB: Andrew Robertson – 6/10

He added some energy to Liverpool’s left flank.

ST: Cody Gakpo – 6/10

Gakpo struggled to get into the rhythm of the contest.

CM: James Milner – 6/10

He was a bit untidy with his passing.
