Scoring Liverpool’s opener and setting up Roberto Firmino‘s 57th-minute strike, Lallana capped an impressive all-round showing.
Performing with grit and determination off the ball, Lallana took a more decisive approach in attack, looking to move play forwards quickly, rather than dallying in possession.
This display saw Lallana earn This is Anfield’s Man of the Match award, and rating the Reds’ performances after the game, supporters followed suit. [td_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_1″]
Lallana currently has a 9.1 rating for his latest Anfield showing, 0.7 more than any other player.
Kolo Toure was the Reds’ standout defender, and earned a rating of 8.0, with fans’ favourite Jon Flanagan slightly below with 7.8.
Following an emphatic team performance, only Simon Mignolet received a rating lower than 7.0, with the Belgian goalkeeper’s quiet evening resulting in a 6.6.
Klopp’s starting lineup averaged a rating of 7.8—evidence of their dominance over Manuel Pellegrini’s City side.[td_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]
Proving his credentials as a match-winner on Wednesday night, Lallana now must continue to impose himself in big-game situations for the Reds, and maintain the approval of supporters.
