Liverpool and Chelsea played out a hugely entertaining draw at Anfield this evening. Mohamed Salah struck against his old side to put the home team ahead, but substitute Willian equalised with a lucky floating effort late on. Let’s see how the players rated …
Flapped at a couple of corners in the first half and just never inspires confidence.
Excellent. Had his hands full with Alonso constantly bombing down the wing, but defended brilliantly and got forward whenever he got the chance.
Probably Liverpool’s most reliable centre-back, that really isn’t much of a compliment though.
Not a top-six centre half. Looked nervy as Chelsea pushed forward looking for an equaliser.
A couple of erratic moments, but all-in-all a decent showing after his nightmare against Sevilla.
Put in his usual work man like performance in the centre of the park.
A bit like Henderson, put in a decent shift but probably lacks the quality to effect these type of games from an attacking point of view.
A couple of surging runs in the first-half and laid on the assist for Salah’s goal.
Full on invention and ingenuity, on another night he could have a couple of assists.
Salah 9 ( MOTM )
Superb. A constant menace to his old club, took his goal well and almost won the game at the end.
The game passed the England international by, looks a shadow of the player of a few seasons ago.
His fresh legs helped his side in the final exchanges.
Almost scored an own goal after a horrendous blunder from a Sturridge cross, but made a few decent saves and had no chance with the goal.
Got through a huge amount of work going forward and in defence.
Solid enough in defence, but struggles when in possession at times.
Another hugely impressive display by the Danish youngster.
A rock, put in a top-class defensive display, and made several crucial blocks and interceptions.
Got into some excellent positions down the right, however his delivery repeatedly let him and his team down.
Got through a mountain of work in midfield and passed the ball well.
A decent display by the former Leicester man, particularly in the first-half when he broke forward well on a couple of occasions.
Really poor. He is obviously fast and powerful, but his footballing ability leaves a lot to be desired, caught out badly for Liverpool’s goal.
Was the best player on the pitch in the first-half, but faded in the second period after taking a kick in the calf from Salah.
Some good link up play at times, never got the clear-cut chance he craved however.
Some sublime passing after his introduction.
He might not have meant it, but scored the all-important equaliser.
His energy and pace caused a tiring Liverpool backline plenty of problems.
