Liverpool 2-2 Spurs – Player Ratings

Top four rivals Liverpool and Spurs played out a thoroughly entertaining 2-2 draw yesterday evening at Anfield. Let’s see how the players rated …

Liverpool

Karius 6

Made a couple of decent stops and read Kane’s intentions for the first penalty save, still never quite convinces though.

Alexander-Arnold 8

One of his sides best players, defended well and put in some top class crosses.

Lovren 6

A big improvement on the last time he played Spurs, but horribly miscued a clearance that lead to the first penalty.

van Dijk 6

Calm and composed at the back for the most part, however it was his last minute foul on Lamela that cost his side victory.

Robertson 6

Had his work cut out dealing with the marauding Trippier. A little sloppy in possession at times.

Can 7

Like most of him team-mates, played well in the first-half but faded as the game went on.

Henderson 7

Solid enough, still working his way back to full fitness.

Milner 7

Got through a mountain of work as always.

Salah 9 ( MOTM )

Superb. Scored his sides two goals with two clinical finishes.

Firmino

A quiet enough day for the classy Brazilian, pressed well however.

Mané

Not for the first time this season his final ball was poor.

Substitutes

Oxlade-Chamberlain 4

Terrible. Looked lackadaisical both in possession and tactically after his introduction.

Wijnaldum 5

Failed to plug the gaps that Spurs had started to exploit between the lines.

Matip N/A

No impact.

Spurs

Lloris 6

Distribution a little shaky and maybe could have done a bit better with Salah’s second goal.

Trippier 7

Got forward as much as possible and put in some fine crosses.

Sánchez 3

Had a nightmare. Shaky defensively and in possession.

Vertonghen 8

Defended brilliantly at times, and covered for the unpredictable Sanchez superbly.

Davies 7

Put in his usual solid shift, had a decent battle with Alexander-Arnold.

Dier 5

His error lead to Liverpool’s opener, and coughed up possession a little to easily at times.

Dembélé 8

His ability to beat a man in the middle of park is such a huge asset for his side.

Son Heung-min 6
Looked dangerous at times, but struggled to impose himself on the game.

Eriksen 7

Got stronger and stronger as the game went on, a master at finding space in between the lines.

Alli 4

Not for the first time this season booked for a disgraceful dive. Has massive amounts of talent, but needs to curb his dick like behaviour.

Kane 6

Held his nerve to score the last minute penalty and net his 100th Premier League goal. However, it was a quite game for the leagues best striker apart from that, and his miss with the first penalty was very poor.

Substitues

Lamela 7

Won the all important last minute penalty.

Wanyama 8

Scored an absolute screamer just a couple of minutes after his introduction.

Llorente N/A

No impact.
