Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea – Player Ratings

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 …

Liverpool

Mignolet 6

Flapped at a couple of corners in the first half and just never inspires confidence.

Gomez 8

Excellent. Had his hands full with Alonso constantly bombing down the wing, but defended brilliantly and got forward whenever he got the chance.

Matip 7

Probably Liverpool’s most reliable centre-back, that really isn’t much of a compliment though.

Klaven 6

Not a top-six centre half. Looked nervy as Chelsea pushed forward looking for an equaliser.

Moreno 7

A couple of erratic moments, but all-in-all a decent showing after his nightmare against Sevilla.

Henderson 7

Put in his usual work man like performance in the centre of the park.

 

 

Milner 7

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.

Oxlade-Chamberlain 7

A couple of surging runs in the first-half and laid on the assist for Salah’s goal.

Couthinho 8

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.

Sturridge 5

The game passed the England international by, looks a shadow of the player of a few seasons ago.

Subs

Wijnaldum 7

His fresh legs helped his side in the final exchanges.

Mane N/A

Chelsea 

Courtois 7

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.

Alonso 7

Got through a huge amount of work going forward and in defence.

Cahill 7

Solid enough in defence, but struggles when in possession at times.

Christensen 8

Another hugely impressive display by the Danish youngster.

Azpilicueta 8

A rock, put in a top-class defensive display, and made several crucial blocks and interceptions.

Zappacosta 6

Got into some excellent positions down the right, however his delivery repeatedly let him and his team down.

Kante 7

Got through a mountain of work in midfield and passed the ball well.

 

 

Drinkwater 7

A decent display by the former Leicester man, particularly in the first-half when he broke forward well on a couple of occasions.

Bakayoko 4

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.

Hazard 8

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.

Morata 7

Some good link up play at times, never got the clear-cut chance he craved however.

Subs

Fabregas 8

Some sublime passing after his introduction.

Willian 8

He might not have meant it, but scored the all-important equaliser.

Pedro 7

His energy and pace caused a tiring Liverpool backline plenty of problems.
