Liverpool and Man City played out a epic 4-3 thriller at Anfield earlier today in probably the best game of the Premier League season so far. Let’s see how the players rated …
Committed the goalkeeping equivalent of a cardinal sin when he was beaten on his near post for Sane’s goal.
Beaten too easily for City’s first goal, but all in all he did a lot of positive things in both attack and defence.
Kept Aguero relatively quiet, although he looked nervy as City pushed for a equaliser late on.
Poor effort for City’s third and will almost certainly be the man to make way for new £75 million signing Van Dijk when the Dutchman is fully fit.
Superb, his best performance in a Liverpool shirt. Won his personal battle with Raheem Sterling aswell as attacking and defending brilliantly.
Another player who put in his best display in Red. Cracking finish for the opener and a nice pass to lay on Firmino’s goal.
Put in a decent shift in the centre of the park.
Really good. Worked his socks off in midfield and got forward as much as possible.
His first touch and finish for his goal were that of a world class player.
Firmino 9 ( MOTM )
Took his goal brilliantly and pressed City defenders into mistakes all day long.
Cracking finish for his goal and his pace caused the visitors problems throughout.
Did ok when brought on to replace Can in midfield.
A mixed bag. Made some tidy saves and impressed again with his distribution, but he was at fault for Salah’s goal.
Had a good battle with Mane, although he wasn’t able to effect the game in a attacking sense as much as he normally does.
Not great. Looks a little rusty after his return from injury.
Coughed up possession to Liverpool’s high press a few times, and looked nervy when put under pressure.
Went off injured early on.
De Bruyne 8
A couple of classy touches and passes. Kept pushing forward right until the end.
Covered a lot of ground in midfield, but maybe not quite as composed a display as we have become used to from the Brazil international.
Put in a impressive display in midfield and took his late goal really well.
Not the best of days for the England international. Lost his duel with Robertson and was given plenty of abuse from the home crowd all day.
Very quiet, and missed a decent chance to equalise at the death.
Scored his sides’ first goal and looked dangerous throughout with the ball at his feet.
Bernardo Silva 7
Looked a threat going forward and slotted home nicely for City’s second goal.
Struggled against the pace of Salah after his early introduction.
