Liverpool entertained Fulham at Anfield earlier tonight as they hoped to secure a good result at home in the Premier League. The Reds made a decent start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 39th minute courtesy of Mohamed Salah’s penalty. Jurgen Klopp’s men went into the half-time interval 1-0 up on the scoreline.
The Merseyside club controlled the game well in the second 45 minutes and managed to secure a narrow 1-0 win in front of the Kop.
Let’s take a look at how each Liverpool player fared during the match against the Cottagers.
GK: Alisson Becker – 7.5/10
The Brazilian keeper made a few solid saves at the back and earned an important clean sheet at home.
RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold – 8/10
He was solid at the back and passed the ball really well going forward.
CB: Ibrahima Konate – 7/10
Konate gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the field and earned a clean sheet in the process.
CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 7.5/10
The Dutch defender dealt with the danger when needed and was a dominant force in the air.
LB: Kostas Tsimikas – 6.5/10
He did his fair share of defending but struggled to impress going forward.
CM: Jordan Henderson – 7/10
He worked hard at both ends of the field and was accurate with his passing.
CM: Fabinho – 6.5/10
The Brazil international managed to impress at times with his contributions at the centre of the park.
CM: Curtis Jones – 7/10
Jones got himself into some dangerous areas but was lackluster in the final third.
RW: Mohamed Salah – 8/10
The Egypt international caused a lot of headaches for his marker and scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot.
ST: Darwin Nunez – 6.5/10
Nunez made two key chances in the final third but was a bit careless with his link-up play up top. However, he deserves credit for earning the penalty which Salah scored.
LW: Luis Diaz – 7/10
He caused all sorts of chaos in and around the Fulham penalty box but failed to register a goal.
LW: Cody Gakpo – 7/10
Gakpo was a real threat in the final third.
LB: Andrew Robertson – 6/10
He made one important clearance at the back.
ST: Diogo Jota – N/A
Jota hardly had any time to influence the game.
CM: James Milner – N/A
He added some energy to Klopp’s midfield.
CM: Harvey Elliott – N/A
Elliott hardly had any time to make an impact.
