Liverpool’s 5-0 victory at Manchester United will live long in the memory for many fans.

Here’s how we rated the Liverpool players:

Allison Becker: 8 

Allison was a spectator for most of the game and was only really tested by Mason Greenwood’s strike which the Brazilian international was equal to.

Distributed the ball well and is definitely at his peak.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – 8 

His overlapping runs caused Shaw all sorts of problems and his delivery for Jota’s goal was superb.

Kept Rashford quiet and as always his passing was top drawer.

Nearly scored a wonder goal.

Virgil Van Dijk 8:

A performance you’d expect from the Dutchman, calm and composed and dominated Ronaldo along with defensive partner Konate.

Limited Manchester United to very little.

Ibrahima Konate: 9

An extremely mature performance from the 22-year-old Frenchman in only his second performance for the Reds, kept Ronaldo quiet and was composed and calm on the ball, didn’t put a foot wrong.

Andy Robertson: 7

Kept a confident Mason Greenwood quiet, ventured forward well and caused Wan-Bissaka problems, a solid performance for such a reliable player for Jurgen Klopp.

Naby Keita: 9 

Arguably Keita’s best performance in a Liverpool shirt, the Guinea International was all over the pitch, especially in the first half and caused problems for Fred and McTominay.

Won the ball high up the pitch and got forward well for his goal.

Unlucky to go off with what looked like a nasty injury.


James Milner: 7

Such a key player for Klopp, Milner pressed well early on and didn’t let Manchester United get out, made good runs from deep too.

Unlucky to go off injured.

Jordan Henderson: 8

A superb performance from the skipper, won the ball high up constantly which caused United problems, worked hard off the ball and his pass for Salah’s third was exquisite.

Diego Jota: 8

Worked exceptionally hard and caused Wan-Bissaka problems with his movement, took his goal well and looked dangerous throughout.

Roberto Firmino: 8 

Pulled Maguire and Lindelof all over the pitch with his movement, worked hard off the ball and linked up play between the midfield and attack well.

Mohammed Salah: 10

Is there anything this man can do wrong at the moment?

Manchester United’s tormentor all afternoon, had a hand in four goals, took all of his goals really well and his movement caused a lot of problems for a fragile Manchester United back four.

The best player in the world.

Curtis Jones: 7

Came on for Milner and kept up the work rate in midfield, final ball did let him down sometimes, but a mature performance from the Reds’ young midfielder.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain 6:

Came on when the game was won, was able to help control the tempo of the game in the Liverpool midfield, had a few sighters from distance.

Sadio Mane: 6

Like Chamberlain, came on when the game was won, was direct at a dejected Manchester United back four and never let them rest, even when the game was over.
