Liverpool entertained Brentford at Anfield earlier today as they hoped to secure a positive result in front of their home fans. The Reds made a quick start to the game and scored the opening goal in the 13th minute when Mohamed Salah found the back of the net from point-blank range. The Merseyside club sat on their lead well and managed to get to the half-time interval 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Jurgen Klopp‘s men managed the game well in the second half and earned a solid 1-0 win at home.

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

GK: Alisson Becker – 7/10

The Brazilian keeper made one decent save at the back and earned an important clean sheet today.

RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold – 7.5/10

The English talent did his fair share of defending and passed the ball really well from midfield.

CB: Ibrahima Konate – 7/10

He dealt with the danger when required and would be quite happy with the clean sheet.

CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 8/10

The Dutch defender made a lot of crucial clearances at the back and picked up an assist for setting up Salah’s match-winner.

LB: Andrew Robertson – 6.5/10

Robertson was solid when defending inside his half but offered very little going forward.

CM: Cody Gakpo – 6.5/10

He got stuck in with a couple of solid tackles and made two good runs with the ball.

CM: Fabinho – 7/10

Fabinho anchored the midfield with conviction and was strong in the air.

CM: Curtis Jones – 7/10

The English sensation was a positive influence at both ends of the pitch.

RW: Mohamed Salah – 8/10

Salah was a constant menace in the final third and scored the only goal of the game with a scrappy finish.

ST: Diogo Jota – 6.5/10

He fought for the loose ball well and engineered some inviting chances in the final third.

LW: Darwin Nunez – 6.5/10

His pace caused a few headaches for the opposition defenders. However, Nunez failed to register a goal.


LW: Luis Diaz – 6/10

He kept the ball well at times on the left flank.

CM: Jordan Henderson – 6/10

Henderson added some energy to Liverpool’s midfield.

CM: James Milner – N/A

He hardly had any time to make an impact.

LB: Kostas Tsimikas – N/A

Tsimikas came on for the final few minutes of the game.
