Liverpool Player Ratings; Liverpool FC 1-0 West Ham United

Goals: Mane 27′

Alisson – 7 (out of 10)

The Brazilian international has made a good save from Pablo Fornals’ second attempt after Trent had cleared the first one off the line.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – 8 – Man of the Match

This youngster had been sensational for the reds after delivering an incredible cross for the goal for Mane.

Sent a free-kick just wide in the first half and also made a key clearance off the line.

Ibrahima Konate – 8

Ibrahima Konate started ahead of Joe Gomez even though the Englishman impressed against Norwich in midweek.

He had a lot to do up against Michail Antonio, and though the Jamaican striker got the better of the battle on a few occasions early on, Konate eventually took control in the contest.

Virgil van Dijk – 7

Won six aerial duels and completed six of eight attempted long passes.

Andy Robertson – 7

Andy Robertson Caused a lot of problems down the left even against a quick winger such as Bowen who is good at tracking back.

Fabinho – 6

Fabinho wasn’t at his best but very useful. An insurance policy as the full-backs bombed forward.

Jordan Henderson – 7

Played some neat passes in the first half to keep moves going, quickly and accurately. Was less effective in the second but it was a tidy performance from the captain.

Naby Keita – 7

He came into the Game Struggling earlier on but grew into the game and was important to Liverpool’s control of the game as they hung on for the win.

Mohamed Salah – 6

Had one of the best chances of the game early on when put through one-on-one with Fabianski. He gave the West Ham keeper a chance to make the save, which he did.

Sadio Mane – 7

Sadio Mane came in place of Bobby another outing for the Senegalese up front as he settles into this role in Firmino’s absence.

Moved in the box like a true striker to get on the end of Trent’s ball in to open the scoring.

Luis Diaz – 8

His performance was outstanding, with witWorld-class touch and ball-carrying, but also does the simple stuff well. There are also signs of a good partnership developing with Salah.


Diogo Jota (on for Salah, 79′) – 6

Had a chance to do something on the break late on but skied his shot.

James Milner (on for Keita, 90′) – N/A

Curtis Jones (on for Luis Diaz, 90+6′) – N/A

Subs not used: Kelleher, Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Elliott, Minamino, Origi

Jurgen Klopp – 7

Once Klopp decided to go with a strong lineup for this game after rotation in midweek against Norwich, the team pretty much picked itself.

He left it late to make substitutions, and though it might have been a surprise to many to see Salah taken off, it was probably the right call.
