Liverpool 1-1 Everton – Player Ratings

Liverpool completely dominated todays Merseyside Derby, but after going 1-0 up through man of the moment Mo Salah they couldn’t get the all-important second goal, and Everton made them pay when Wayne Rooney smashed home a penalty late on. Let’s see how the players rated …

Mignolet 7

Raced off his line to intercept well from Niasse early on, apart from that was a spectator until the penalty.


Gomez 8

A beast. Won every 50/50 and showed real quality on the ball.


Lovren 5

The big Croatian will go down as the villain for giving away the penalty, it was a really harsh decision though to be fair.


Klavan 6

Dealt with whatever limited amount of action came his way easily.



Robertson 6

Got forward well, but his crossing let him down at times.


Oxlade-Chamberlain 8

Excellent. His best performance since joining the club.


Henderson 7

Neat and tidy in possession, and broke up play well when needed.


Milner 7

Nothing fancy, but kept his side ticking over nicely in the centre of the park.


Salah 9 (MOTM)

Superb. Is getting closer and closer to that world-class bracket with every passing game.


Solanke 7


Ok. Kept the Everton centre-backs honest, but didn’t get the chance he craved.


Mané 6

Is not playing at anywhere near his usual level, made a mess when clean through on the stroke of half-time and that proved to be very costly in the end.




Coutinho 6

Not able to impact the game he would have wanted to.


Firmino 6

See above.


Ings N/A

No Impact.

Pickford 8

No chance with the goal. Made a few decent saves and commanded his area really well.

Kenny 7

Stood up to wave after wave of Liverpool attacks.

Holgate 7

Made a couple of crucial defensive interventions.

Williams 6

Ok, but still looks as if his best days are well and truly behind him.

Martina 3

Absolutely destroyed by Salah.

Rooney 7

Doesn’t have the legs to play on the right wing, but showed why managers keep shoe-horning him into their teams when he played the pass that won the penalty, and then stepped up and converted it.



Davies 4

Is going to be a top player, but there is no dressing it up, he was absolutely abysmal today and was hooked at half-time.


Gueye 8

Probably his sides best player, he was the only Everton midfielder who was able to get close to their Liverpool counterparts.

Sigurdsson 6

Worked hard, but zero impact in attacking areas.

Calvert-Lewin 7

Faced a thankless task upfront for The Blues, hung in there though and did well to win his side a penalty.

Niasse 5

Ineffectual and withdrawn at half-time.



Schneiderlin 5

A shadow of the player that impressed at Southampton.


Lennon 7

Caused Liverpool a few problems down the right.


Jagielka N/A

No impact.
