There were too many poor performers in Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Brighton – look away now if you’re a central midfielder!
It was Alisson (7.2) and Mane (7.2) who were given the highest average rating for Liverpool.
The Echo‘s Ian Doyle was hugely impressed by Alisson, who bailed out his side on a number of occasions at Anfield.
He described it as an “excellent showing” from the Brazilian, adding that he had no chance to keep out Mwepu’s “freak goal.”
Mane received TIA’s Man of the Match award from Jack Lusby, who felt that his “defensive work was among the best on the day,” as well as providing attacking thrust.
Mohamed Salah (6.6) was next in the reckoning for the Reds, with FotMob pointing out that he completed 100 percent of his dribbles and made four recoveries.
Doyle claimed Jones experienced a “difficult first half,” also bemoaning the fact that he “didn’t get any better after the interval.”
Meanwhile, Oxlade-Chamberlain “remains the worst of Klopp’s eight midfield options” in a defensive sense, according to Lusby.
Up next for Liverpool is another meeting with Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, with the Spanish giants making the trip to Anfield on Wednesday evening.
