    Alisson 7 - Nothing spectacular. Couldn't do anything about the goals
    Trent 7 - I think Trent started off well in the first half, but he dropped a few levels after his mistake which led to their first goal They seemed to target him all game.
    Matip 7 - Had a good game, but wasn't really in sync with Gomez. Could maybe have done more to stop their second goal.
    Gomez 6 - His positioning wasn't great. Like I mentioned above, he and Matip weren't really in sync.
    Robbo 8 - I thought he was great. Milan didn't even bother attacking on his side during the game it seems.
    Fabinho 7 - Nothing spectacular. Decent passing, played well.
    Hendo 9 MOM - I think he was immense. Great vision, great passing, great defending all game. What a belter!
    Keita 5 - Ghost.
    Salah 7 - Could have been 8 but he missed a pen. Nice pass before Trent's "goal". Good finish from Origi's flick.
    Jota 6 - Just wasn't his day.
    Origi 7 - Lovely assist to Salah but I need more from a striker.

    Naby a 5 is just bad trolling, he did fine. Thought Jota was our worst player tonight…really was ineffective out there… Gomez can be pardoned since it’s his first game back.

    Guarantee you Naby had more touches than both Hendo and Fab today.

    I'm not on the Keita hate bandwagon, but I just didn't think he had a good game.

    Probably, but they did more with their touches than him

    I thought Jota was good today. He did alot more defensive work than usual, but was still involved in the final third, always busy. Bar a good block from their defender in the 2nd half he would have gotten a goal.

    Yeah, he did OK in the beginning when we were toying with them but I just stopped noticing him after that.

    Unfortuanltyey this seems to be the modern-day narrow narrative of judging a player's worth. Score a goal and play crap and you're amazing, play well but don't score and your not fit for purpose. Mane is more than an alright player...We knew he wasn't a clinical striker when we bought him why are we complaining now as if we just realized that!? He's capable of streaks, no more no less.   Guarantee he scores in the next few games ppl will be flipping saying "ah he's alright that lad Mane, never doubted him!"

    Hendo’s goal was worthy of winning any game, the technique was out of this world and his celebration was like “yeah I’m the fucking man here, say what? I can’t heaaaaar youuuu.”

    Keita was *fine* and nothing more. Easily the worst of the midfielders.

    I thought Rebic was quite a handful tonight, quick good movement working hard and end product. Wouldn’t mind trying to sign him in Jan as alternative to Adeyemi..we need attacking reinforcements no question about it.

    Ali was fucking shit. That German wanker with the stupid video would have saved the first. As for the stand out performance, it was Fabinho. Ran the midfield carrying Keita on his back.

    Jones ,Henderson, And Thiago seem to handle the tempo when they came on. Or did you just fail to notice that..??

    His touch was off and could not sort his feet out most of the time, wanted to long to take shots, when the old Mane would strike the ball almost straight away, he  struggles to take players on when the mane of old would breeze past they. It is not just this game. He as been like this for a season or two now and is not getting better.
    His game as gone, He is not the same Mane of three or four seasons ago

    Put in the effort in the first 20 mins without looking like he would score, then when back to half =heart runs, never really try to dash into the box when we looked to break, and too often moved towards the ball on the egde of the box taking defenders with him instead of creating space for Salah and TAA

    You mean Hendo who started the game? Funny that he had the tempo of it yeah o_O
    Milner was composed but was on for less than 10 and most notably played it into their corner, and while I thought Jones was bright the play was lost with him on a couple of occasions. So again, let's keep the hyperbole under control eh?

    Mane, as a poster said above had always been a bit of a streaky player and will sometimes run a bit hot and cold, but the season is 5 games old and he's scored a couple already so just chill TF out. Maybe he doesn't always run and beat a man now, but he still can. If you want to reference only tonight I don't really remember Keita doing it against Calibria and Kjaer unless Robbo was overlapping, and by the time Mane was on Robbo was focused a bit more on defence and not providing that outlet quite as much. He had one sort of chance, which was wonderful control on the chest from a good cross and then (likely with it being his first proper action of the game) he rushed his position and shot a bit. His feet for that however were fine.

    The lad is one goal away from equalling Keegan on the Liverpool top scorers list, in a damn sight less games, and is still only 29. So maybe, just maybe, get behind him and stop being a hysterical bell.
