Ratings

Alisson Becker – 8
Didn’t have much work to do for most of the day but was assured in the final moments of the game. Was rounded by Hueng-Min Son early in the second half but forced the South Korean winger into a tight enough angle that he couldn’t convert.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – 8
Looked shaky at times going backward, but was positive going forward and was unlucky not to get himself an assist.

Dejan Lovren – 6
Could have done better to block Son’s early shot but looked good the rest of the game, then was outpaced by him in the buildup to aforementioned attempt to play around Alisson. Didn’t make many mistakes and showed a good range of passing.

Virgil van Dijk – 7
Wasn’t too involved as Liverpool had the ball for large swathes of the game, was dominant when needed and could have bagged a goal.

Andrew Robertson – 8
A lung-bursting performance — I’m not sure if he ever stopped running. Produced some good crosses and passes and wasn’t troubled defensively.

Jordan Henderson – 7
Perhaps not the best performance from the captain, but he looked to be positive with his passes and, most importantly, grabbed the leveller with a composed finish across goal.

Fabinho – 9
The quintessential Fabinho performance — swept up everything on offer and showed off his passing skills, to boot. Totally solid.

Georginio Wijnaldum – 6
Not the best Wijnaldum performance. Had a fantastic opportunity to shoot from close range but managed to dribble out of the box. The game just didn’t suit him.

Mohamed Salah – 7
Looked dangerous all game but couldn’t get the right connection on any of his shots to score from open play. Still converted the penalty to give Liverpool the go-ahead goal.

Roberto Firmino – 7
Like Wijnaldum, this game didn’t suit Bobby. Spurs gave up no space but Firmino still had the odd chance to influence the game, dropping deeper than usual.

Sadio Mane – 8
Dynamic and looked consistently threatening. Won the penalty to put Liverpool ahead and could’ve scored from a handful of half-chances.

Subs:

James Milner – 6
Came on to steady the ship after Salah scored. Didn’t have much time to influence the game but broke up a Spurs attack with a clever foul and won a foul in the Spurs corner in the dying moments.

Joe Gomez – 5
Only had a few minutes so couldn’t make much of an impact. Committed a foul as soon as he came on.

Origi – n/a
