Liverpool player ratings: Four nines as 4-0 win over Man Utd moves Reds top of the table


Liverpool were at the imperious best at Anfield on Tuesday night as Jurgen Klopp’s side tore Manchester United apart in a pulsating 4-0 win with goals from Luis Diaz, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah. Express Sport brings a run down of how Liverpool’s players rated in their dominant win.

Alisson: 6

Nothing to do in the first half with United failing to register a single shot on target. Quietest night any Liverpool goalkeeper has likely had against United.

Trent Alexander-Arnold: 7

A constant threat down the right and a menace for Diogo Dalot throughout the match.

Joel Matip: 7

Long gone are the days of Matip being an unsung hero. Played his role in Liverpool’s masterful second goal.

Virgil van Dijk: 7

Was untroubled throughout the opening 45 minutes with Marcus Rashford failing to put up much threat. Had a few iffy moments in the second half but still stood firm.

Andy Robertson: 7

Much like his team-mate down the opposite wing, Robertson was a constant outlet and providing space for the likes of Diaz, Mane and Salah to thrive further forward.

JUST IN: Paul Pogba ‘may have played last minutes for Man Utd’

Fabinho: 7

Usually needed in a much deeper role but United’s lack of threat granted Fabinho more freedom to roam and start Liverpool’s attack.

Thiago: 9

Injury issues long gone now and Thiago is discovering his best ever form of late in a Liverpool shirt. Ran the show in midfield from the very first minute.

Jordan Henderson: 7

A true captain’s performance and arguably the heartbeat of Liverpool’s midfield in big matches.

Mohamed Salah: 9

Has come under criticism of late in part due to the very high standards he has set but was simply sublime against a sub-par United side. Back to his best in front of the Anfield faithful.

Sadio Mane: 9

An unbelievable pass for Liverpool’s second and a brilliant finish for Liverpool’s third. Has stepped up for the big moments in recent weeks.

Luis Diaz: 9

Simple a revalation since his January arrival and has transformed Liverpool’s attacking line-up. A goal and assist just like his fellow frontmen.


Diogo Jota: 7

Came on for Diaz and then played his part in Liverpool’s fourth, providing the assist for Salah’s second.

Naby Keita: N/A

James Milner: N/A
