AS Roma 4-2 Liverpool: Player Ratings

Well I just cannot believe it, neither can the majority of Liverpool fans! With a keeper without a cap for Germany, a left-back who was relegated with Hull last year, a ‘useless defender’, a waste of money in Van Dijk, a player playing in U23’s last year, a 33 year-old in midfield, a awful captain, Chelsea reject and an ‘awful number 9’, Liverpool have made it to the final of the Champions League! (That isn’t what I think that is what other people say)!

Loris Karius – 7.0
Demanding many times (which is a good thing), good handling, punches, only bad thing was the fact he conceded four goals!

Trent Alexander-Arnold – 6.0
Not the greatest performance the youngster has ever had! Was at fault for Dzeko’s goal. A night to remember for him, but also a night to forget.

Dejan Lovren – 5.0
Poor clearence leading to Roma’s first goal, stupid foul on Dzeko to give a penalty. Awful performance from the Croatian.

Virgil Van Dijk – 8.0
This man is proving to be worth the money! Crucial tackles made numerous amount of times. Very composed on the ball, couldn’t have done anything about the goals.

Andy Robertson – 7.5
Made a brilliant dashing run into the box almost assisting Mane but Allison the Roma keeper pulled off a blinding save to keep the game alive. Lost the ball a little bit but was still a decent performance, never seen this man perform under a six!

Jordan Henderson – 7.5
He might not be Steven Gerard but the commitment and leadership this man brings to the side is sublime! A few errors in the midfield but nothing too major, definitely is proving he can and should play at the World Cup!

Giorginho Wijnaldum – 8.0
Very important goal restoring Liverpool’s lead. Bagged his first EVER away goal for Liverpool and what a time it was to get it! Solid performance.

James Milner – 8.0
VERY unfortunate own goal to say the least! Didn’t really put a foot wrong all match. Best spell in his Liverpool career by a country mile!

Mohammed Salah – 5.5
Quiet game from Salah for the second game running. Maybe this man is human after all! Expected more from the Egyptian King!

Sadio Mane – 9.0
Scored the opener with a cool finish on his weak foot. Made superb runs time and time again. Roma defenders were struggling to cope with the pace of him. Great to see him back at his best.

Roberto Firmino – 8.5
Lead the line very well. His footballing IQ is off the rails. The creativity and cheek this man brings to the side is unreal. Keep doing what you’re doing Bobby!
